Re: Overclocking

Yes, I understand. Have not tried single file replace, I am replacing all files in /boot except cmdline.txt and config.txt. My goal is to find the revision that breaks it (hopefully). Then I will try isolate to single file (hopefully). But from past experience, data corruption is very elusive to fi...

Re: Automatic setup for RTL8188CUS based wifi adapters

I am a complete novice with linux....... I am running the lastest wheezey beta on and a WPA network at home. Will this driver work on this and how do I install it. If your wifi adapter uses the rl8188cus chip take a look here. Thanks, will give it a go tonight. Does this work with WPA security ?

I am going to look into 1-wire to do interfacing and sensing. You can get some of the 1-wire components as 'samples' too.

The vallemen kit also looks good.
