Re: Maplin in trouble

It also is still much nicer to shop at than PCworld. I actually don't know of any other B&M places that I can actually buy components or even the more granular parts of general tech that they sell. Good luck finding the same selection of cables/cards/flash storage at another chain store.

Re: Use my xiaomi mi max screen in a Raspberry pi 3 b

You probably could in theory, but you would have to hunt down/design some way of translating HDMI to whatever input the Mi Max screen uses and also meet its specific power requirements. It most likely would not be worth the time and money required.

Re: Chromium OS + adobe flash

I don't know how package management works in Chromium OS, but as Flint OS is based off of it, can't you take the flash package from Chromium and install it on Flint? If not have you looked into trying PepperFlash or Gnash?

Assuming that is the same as on x86 you will need to download the new certificates without installing them, remove the old ones and then install the new ones. There is a post about it here: https://www.archlinux.org/news/ca-certi ... ervention/

Re: TOR installation

You have Tor installed, this is not the same as the Tor browser. Seeing as you have Tor installed you can then redirect your current browser through the Tor service that you have running. This was the normal way of doing things before the Tor browser was released.

Re: PC desktop / notebook cases for the Pi ?

I don't know details as I haven't used one. I don't think you would fit four in there, but I believe there is space for one or two HATs under the black panel at the top. Probably best to check with someone who has actually used one though.

I tried installing PoSh from the AUR but it takes a hell of a long time to build. Unless you are working with Windows servers there isn't really any need to have it though, it is very cumbersome compared to Bash and even command prompt.

If you are running something like Open/LibreELEC and can configure it to connect to the stream I don't think there should be an issue. A lot of people use Pis as HTPCs.
