Leave some "slack" when expanding filesystems.

I have used 8GB SDHC cards from 2 different manufacturers, and couldn't copy (full disk raw copy) my source card because the target card was a wee bit smaller. I had to shrink the expanded source partition and copy the card by partion and not by device (full disk raw copy). I suggest making the expa...

Re: Proto Armour for Raspberry Pi Now Available!

Very nice! A few questions:

1) Are blank plates for the long & short edges of the case available?

2) If so, what are the color choices?

3) Can one drill holes in the plate for the LEDs and extend the light pipes to these new plate holes?

4) Any videos of the CNC process?

Thanks

"Next" topic button instead of page numbers

IMHO, having a "Next" button makes navigation to the next topic easier.

Plug & Play Ethernet? WiFi?
