I have an SD card plugged into my powered USB hub (along with keyboard and mouse). Really basic question, I know... but how do I mount the card so that I can see the contents?

Thanks. Mark.

Old portable TV colours

The issues I'm having is that its colours are all wrong and dull i.e. red/greens when it should be green/red.

And it doesn't all fit the screen.

Re: Debian squeze version 6 login details

Has anyone suggested the obvious yet (in this thread)? Namely, that it is likely to be a jittery keyboard problem. To clarify, the problem is that if your power supply ain't right (which seems to be true more often than not), then the keyboard repeats. I.e., when you type a, you get aaaa (some rand...

Re: Over the moon as I finally got a Pi

Over the moon as I finally got a Pi
