Re: Forum Shuffle

Thanks @Bensimmo! This is really a work in progress; I've done the big shuffle (and a bit of pruning - no posts have been deleted, but some have been moved to different forums so we've got fewer subforums), but it shouldn't be considered the end of the process. If you guys have thoughts about how th...

Re: KVM on rasberry pi 3

Thanks! I'm easing back in at the moment (back in the office next week after a weekend at Coolest Projects with the CoderDojo team in Dublin - and right now the reason for the maternity leave is playing with a teaset by my desk here at home) - it's very good to be back! Apols for the OT.

Re: KVM on rasberry pi 3

"Guys" is regarded as fine and inclusive by a lot of us non-men. Please don't police English usage here: a lot of posters aren't first language speakers, and doing so only serves to dampen people's enthusiasm for participation. It's a good rule of thumb that if you're not personally offended by some...

PMs being turned off from June 13

Hi folks Those of you who have used the private messaging system on this forum over the last year will have received an email from us explaining that we're reluctantly going to have to turn the function off, at least for the time being. Here's the text of that email for your reference. At Raspberry ...

Re: any news yet on the PI3A??

The market for the model A is actually pretty enormous, but it's not you guys: it's almost entirely industrial customers (who tend to order in batches of many thousands at a time). It's a bit of an anomaly, in that you're unlikely to see one in the wild, but there are a lot out there.

Re: Standalone Kodi on RPi3: wifi issues

If you've got a metal case or a case with a metal support or screw next to the WiFi adaptor (or an add-on board with a spacer or screw there), that could be the culprit. Have you tried it without the case?

Absolutely not throwing any shade on the OP - this is a great idea - but I think it's quite easy to underestimate just how hard setting up a scheme like this can be, especially if you intend it to scale (and if you don't intend it to scale, what's the point?) Administering something like this is goi...

Re: Raspberry Pi, a new chapter? Made in Japan.

It's real. These are for the Japanese market only, and they're produced in a Sony factory that's cloned the production line from the Sony factory in Wales that makes the vast majority of Raspberry Pis.
