Re: Is it suitable? For a Computer Science course? [Fake post from spammer]

I've banned the OP. (See note in first post.) The mods are dealing with a huge number of these apparently innocent posts at the moment; very occasionally one might get through (whoever approved this probably didn't see the other one), but we're doing our very best to filter them. Please have some pa...

Re: We're looking at introducing more swag - what would you like to see?

I like that. There's a pi sticker on my luggage to help spot it on the conveyor belt when flying. A bit of a niche use case, but a tag like the one you linked would be nice. I need to be careful not to fly on the same plane as you; I'm using the same method to ID my bags! (I used to have a frozen c...

We're looking at introducing more swag - what would you like to see?

We're going to be kicking off some new swag soon, and have been kicking ideas around about new logo-festooned STUFF for you to buy. What would you like to see? (Can't promise everything you ask for, but we'll consider everything!)

I promise we will revisit the umbrella question.

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.

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?)
