Re: Raspberry Pi doesn't stay powered up for long.

I covered my bets for getting R-Pi model B 512 cards by ordering from both venders. Two from Farnell/Newark id# FNXM121117623 & FNXM121117628 and one from Allied Electronics id# E4612RS2V13B1.0 [[ RS == Radio Shack, maybe? ]]. Guess which one I tried first. Yup, you guessed it, the # E4612RS hung/lo...

Re: Pics of Eben, while ...

It is not surprising how many North Coast Divers never again dive cold water, after diving in the warm water of the tropics. Plus the hike you have to do for a beach dive vs boat diving.

Glad to hear your Scouts had a great time.

From the Royal Navy Traditional Toasts you are seeking enlightenment?

Re: YOU SUCK: the venting thread

What SUCKs is the $600 USD we spent on "curing" the same condition on a kitten that now owns us.

As I understand it, in our cat it was a form of Herpes virus.

Can you ask for the pictures to be put on the front page?

Being that they are Bare Boards, they should be on page 4 or something like that.

Isn't that where the London papers put the bare photos?
