Re: Software for Children with Autism and Aspergers

<t>I am the IT guy for a non-profit helping kids with Autism and Aspergers in terms of group homes, centers, and even schools.<br/> <br/> While it might be a big project, I'd be interested in developing software that could help them utilizing the R-Pi as an inexpensive platform that I could essentia...

Re: Virtualbox VM for the RaspberryPi

<t>If this is 100% open source material I'd be willing to host the VM on my webserver. Great bandwidth. Just need permission.<br/> <br/> BTW do you have info on using this VM? I just finished setting up qemu-arm and haven't tested it yet.<br/> Just going step by step, but you're obviously well ahead...

<r>Curiously enough, that link also mentions the Broadcom BCM2835 but the link points to info on the BCM2727 and BCM2763.<br/> <br/> Looks like the right link *should?* be:<br/> <URL url="http://www.broadcom.com/products/BCM2835">http://www.broadcom.com/products/BCM2835</URL><br/> <br/> An interesti...

Re: ARM low-level programming

Thanks, and sorry to waste time. Read the FAQ but didn\'t dig that deeply into the wiki I should have found it but greatly appreciate your post.

Re: ARM low-level programming

Thanks, I believe while reading the forum it was mentioned it\'ll use the ARM11? Is there a specific model? See from that website the tech manuals are broken down into 4 different types for ARM11 (ARM1136, ARM1156, ARM1176, ARM11 MPCore).

Re: ARM low-level programming

<r>It\'s been years since I\'ve really written code in assembler x86 and before that some m68k. Anyone know are there any good and thorough ARM docs online akin to those Intel and AMD release in volumes for every CPU they release?<br/> <br/> Last Intel one I saw was for the P4 and believe it was bro...

Re: If you could order now..

<r>If I were rich, I'd happily buy 16. As is I'm hoping to buy 1-4. The quantity is due to wanting to build a small cluster, in that respect 4 is enough for the first stage and if it does what I want which seems highly likely buying the next 12+ will be as simple as saving waiting or just buying 1-2...

Re: Camera for R-Pi

In all fairness since this is linux and this has USB support I'd wage pretty much any webcam will work via v4l2 , also look into gphoto2 project for regular consumer hand held digital camera control.

Re: High Altitude Balloon Control System

<t>I come from a programming background. Initially had planned to use a PIC chip but it had a modest learning curve.<br/> <br/> Having used Linux for over a decade this just seems perfect. It can control the camera over USB via gphoto2, GPS, and there are a myriad of sensors also accessible via USB....

Re: Cluster (Bramble...) Design Discussion (Advanced)

Created an account to show my interest. I've been wanting some of these since they were first announced and one of the projects is to create a 4 or 8 node mini cluster. So if others are interested in the same I'd like to help or at least share my experience once these are in the wild.
