J3 Short?? [Random LEDs lighting]

Hi all. I've assembled my Gertboard into the beautiful thing that it is. Except when connected to the Pi the LEDs will light up randomly. I tracked down the problem to be the sponge I had it resting on, so I removed it but the problem continued. After some more investigation I have found I can light...

Re: Order and Shipping update from RS & Allied

If you have ordered with RS/Allied you get your order reference number and lead time in the 'order confirmation' email. I ordered with Element 14. So where can i see the current status ? I would guess that you can't get a current status with them either. Things may have changed now that they have w...

Re: Order and Shipping update from RS & Allied

Just a heads up for people in the UK. You may not get an email from Parcelforce confirming dispatch. I came home from work today to find an RS package after refreshing Outlook every 5 mins for 2 days. Ah well I avoided doing any work :D Ordered: June 19th (5 week lead time) Order reference: 760xx De...

I've only recently started, and I chose 3. My reason was because everything will be 3 at some point and the difference isn't that much. If you follow Youtube tutorials the top comments often explain any difference between the syntax of 2 and 3. Or just learn using materials that have examples in 3.x...

Re: Bread board problems

As jamessh said, you would connect it using the GPIO pins on the RPi. Have a quick look at the first issue of the MagPi. It'll answer most of your questions I'm sure. :)

Re: downloading software

(I've not done this myself but I will guess I am correct) 1. You need to open up the Checksum utility 2. Select the Debian .zip file using the 'Browse' button 3. Then paste in the hash key (that really long code of gobbledygook) 4. Then click verify. If they match your Debian file is not corrupt. Yo...

Re: Bread board problems

I don't know if you've seen the MagPi, but it has had a section in it on setting up a breadboard with the Pi. It's written as a complete beginners guide, setting up switches and LEDS etc. I'm planning on using it to teach myself :)
