Re: Naming of Pi's

Generally a higher model number and/or a "+" means it's 'better' in some respects than something with a lower model number or the same model without the "+" but that's not entirely consistent. This really was my main point, regarding the 3B + as it is not merely an improvement release, it is a slig...

Naming of Pi's

Could the raspbery pi range be better named? Something other than the sometimes confusing numbering, lettering and +ing. 2 or 3 OK, got it, B possibly but bring in the + also and there seems to be a lot more confusion between those that are not aficionados, the layman/begginer. Can we not have a nam...

Re: Wires and peripherals, ugly or tidy?

Have decided, for now anyway, after good success with an added fan for temperature lowering to buy an smraza case with fan. Already had heat sinks fitted with temps at 65-70 degrees just doing bits and bats, with a fan also it lowered to 29-35 degrees. One day I WILL get around to making my own "des...

I am far too OCD to be like Jim Williams, although....He could have achieved the same designer look with a pasta maker in nano seconds by comparison ;-)

Wires and peripherals, ugly or tidy?

I would like to make my own pi case, therefore, keeping wire chaos to a minimum etc would be a bonus. I was just wondering what you do to keep your pi's work areas tidy and neat? I understand it depends on what you are doing with them but on a basic user level with a monitor, are there any tips for ...

Re: STICKY: Introduce yourself!

Hi all, I am Bill, long time lurker and pi fan. No expert by any means when it comes to the pi and all that it does. Hopefully I can add a little something to the forum along the way :idea:
