someone can easily remove the sd card Don't let them, physical security is just as important as remote security. plug it into a microsd reader into another pi and access all my files on it. It wouldn't even need to be a Pi Is there a way that I can prevent this from happening? Maybe adding a passwo...

Re: Next raspberry ethernet?

From that link...
However, the Pi Zero and Zero W have the same, single-core processor as the original Pi 1 that came out in 2012, and they sport just 512GB of RAM.
:shock:

I want one

Re: RGB Backlit Keyboard

Recently read that if your Pi draws more than 2A6 then the polyfuse would blow anyway, if it does switch off for a while (~24 hours) disconnect the keyboard and reconnect via a powered USB hub, no harm done.

Thanks Brian,

Primarily my language is Pascal though I do understand C, C++ even COBOL (That'll take you back a bit), I hope that I can interject just a little information to your readers but sorry no promises. I will buy your book though when sufficient funds are available.

Re: Are there any benefits from the Raspberry Pi using ARM?

They (RPF) made their bed, let them lie in it.

Been lying in that bed now for a few years, it's bloody comfy. I'm sure millions of other users agree but if the OP can come up with an SBC as successful as the Pi using an x86 processor (actually any SBC) I'm more than willing to listen.

Re: Want to use full 16gb of Sdcard rather than just the 4gb limitation by Fat-32

The 4 GB Fat32 limitation is a file size limitation, not a partition size limitation. Fat32 partitions can be bigger than 4 GB. Plus, the FAT partition is only the Boot partition. Although already answered just for further clarification alphanumeric is correct, file size is limited to 4GB but parti...

If you are running a mail server on a Pi or any other machine you have much bigger problems than ClamAV can fix.

Perhaps to add clarification, though as you discovered it only adds confusion.

No difference and limitations are the same.

You're looking at the problem backwards, make the USB device bootable and boot from that (obviously limited to Pi 3b(+)'s). Then do all your work from the USB drive.
