Re: Adding a Web Interface to a HDMI Switcher

if you check archive.org the docs are available and the link to the board fab seems to be valid

Re: heavily discounted Pi0Ws - new product announcement coming?

microcenter discount the Pi0W to $5 fairly regularly. every couple of months or so in the last year. I think they use it as a loss leader and it seems to work, at least for me :D

Re: Raspberry Pi 3 B without GPU?

it's just bad description writing on the part of microcenter. they are both Pi3B's that are exactly the same just from different "manufacturers" one is farnell/element14/newark "made" and one is RS "made".

The google AIY is available for preorder at microcenter for pick-up at the end of October. I spoke to someone at microcenter and they said that soon it'll be available with a shipping option rather than pick-up so those without a microcenter near them will be able to get it. http://www.microcenter.c...

Re: cd Documents Should Not Work?

no cd Documents is correct as the Documents directory is in your home directory and when you open a terminal or login you are in your home directory

cd /Documents would be a Directory called Documents under the root directory

Re: Flick demo's won't run

it's ok it's a simple mistake to make. they mean that the flick board doesn't require soldering. they assume (and we all know what that means :) ) that the header is already soldered onto the pizero as well you can't attach a pHat without the pizero having a header.

Re: Flick demo's won't run

i'm not quite sure what you mean. did you not solder a header onto the pizero? you just rested the header on the holes?

could you post a photo?

you do need to have a header soldered on to the pizero, well soldered or hammerheaders.

Re: Flick demo's won't run

the installer should have enabled i2c but that would be the 1st thing i'd check (after checking that the flick board is installed correctly e.g. the pins are lined up correctly and the board is pushed down enough) sudo raspi-config then go to interfacing options then select i2c and enable and after ...
