Re: Connecting 5 running raspi to my MAC so i can copy files

Are you saying get a router with 8 ports ? Or a switch like this http://www.eclipsecomputers.com/product.aspx?code=NHN-FS105 Yes, both those are working choices. An 8-port switch will save you the trouble later if you want to add more Pi's or another computer. A "router" with 8 ports might be bit e...

Re: Assembly - any use in teaching it?

As a follow on from the BASIC thread, an interesting debate has been going on about the merits of teaching assembly language - which isn't entirely off topic because some flavours of BASIC readily support mixing this in amongst the higher level code. Whilst it can on the one hand provide a more com...

Re: Why aren't engineers paid by the hour like consultants?

Sometimes, I wonder why engineers cannot be paid by the hour for their services like consultants, lawyers, accountants, even doctors. One reason I can think of is that the engineering outcome (specs) can be easily measured. So, it is hard to screw customers like some management consultants did to t...

Rather than consumer switches id suggest buying some second hand cisco 24 port 2900's on ebay or one of the second hand networking gear sites.

Re: Raspberry Pi SUPERCOMPUTER!!

I'm very impressed by this. And the instructions are clear enough for any of us to have a go. A question I have is: how do they handle all those ethernet connections? Are they going to a series of ethernet switches plugged together in series? And, in a home environment, how many ethernet connection...

Re: Raspberry Pi as a Warflying tool

I take it you have seen the defcon presentation of war rocketing - basically launch a small computer an Ap.

So anyone in Cambridge know any of the rocket nerds and want to try this in the Uk - finally some use for my CISCO wifi certification.
