Re: Windows 7, win32diskimager not working!

Guess I can only thank you for maintaining an excellent piece of software, then! Other than the 'old' startup error message on Win7x64, I have had no issues what so ever - despite using the built-in card reader on my Thinkpad.

Re: News articles and blog posts about Raspberry Pi

The guys at Bitcraze have turned a Pi into a ground station for their micro-sized quad copter dubbed 'Crazyflie'!

Re: Who is in the 1GHz Club?

My UsenetPi is running beautifully in Turbo mode on a 700mA supply w. nothing attached.
The change from 'standard' 800MHz overclock to Turbo (and the other improvements introduced with the related updates) increased average download speed by 20%. I'm a happy camper! :D

Re: Has anyone set up a VPN client on their Raspberry Pi?

Which OS are you using? Not all of them have the necessary kernel modules unless you build it yourself. I know recent Raspbian builds do, not sure about any others.

Re: Post your Raspberry Pi server setup!

Using my (for now) lonely Pi as a Usenet client / VPN server, running Sabnzbd and Sickbeard on top of a stripped down Raspbian. This is a massive improvement over my previous setup where my NAS (Readynas Duo) was hosting all of these things. - Increased download speed - Saves electricity and hard dr...

Re: Invitation to order from RS

No extra charges as this was delivery within EU, which (IIRC) means no import tax.
Total cost for Pi + 4GB SD + Delivery to DK: 33.04£

Re: Invitation to order from RS

I got an email from DHL containing tracking information a couple of hours prior to delivery. This was 1½ day after shipping begun, so you can't be sure to get it before (attempted) delivery. Have had some rather negative experiences with DHL before, but this time there were no nasty surprises. I hav...

Re: Invitation to order from RS

Just had my Pi (RS order nr. 10xxx) delivered by DHL in DK. Registered within a couple of hours of launch, placed order on may 17, got shipment notification earlier today - and now the Pi and an SD card is sitting on my desk. This is going to be an excellent weekend! Btw, the Pi was very securely pa...

I\'ve got a idea for a candidate stunt. How\'s about we release a fully functional PC for schools that plays 1080p video and fits in your pocket, all for $25?

Come on now, let\'s try to at least be realistic.

Re: Home entertainment Netwok

Don't know if it will be able to do software decode, but we haven't yet been told which codecs will be included (except h.264). So until liz comes back with info on that part, all we can do is speculate.

Re: PLaying Movies

Well it seems x264 should not be a problem. As to xvid, that is yet to be seen. There has been little news on the codecs lately, and the playback of video on this device very much depends on whether decoding will be done by the GPU or the CPU.

I believe most people already have a case at home, these things called \'rooms\'. It might be somewhat on the large side, but all cables and accessories will fit nicely inside! ^^
