Enquire about their opening hours, it costs 45$ and the vending machine only accepts 5$ bills.

Re: Shipping Cost

Just wait until they offer free shipping on order over $100. I bought 2 for me and 2 for a friend at work that at the same time because of that.

Where are you located? If a co-worker doesn't come through I may have an extra Pi to sell.

Re: New archlinuxarm image

The newest torrent on the downloads page does not seem to be working. I am getting the following error.

Failure: Requested download is not authorized for use with this tracker.

The 2013-01-22 torrent is still working fine. I am using uTorrent on a Window 7 machine. Any ideas?

Re: Openelec shutdown

I was logged in as root when I tested as I have been too lazy to create a second user on this Pi.

From what I can tell it is doing a proper, normal shutdown as if you had clicked shutdown on the main screen of OpenELEC.

Power off isn't recognised on the pi ......
What OS are you running on your Pi? I am running OpenELEC which from the title of this thread I believed you were also. If you are running OpenELEC are you trying to enter 'power off' or 'poweroff' as the command?

Re: Openelec shutdown

So to confirm what is the exact method to turn off my pi running openelec? i.e. a shutdown method for xbmc/openelec so I can remove power from the pi. This is what I did to test. On my desk I have my main computer which is running Windows 7 and Putty. Next to it I have my OpenELEC Pi with a monitor...

Re: SD Card Cutting Tutorial

Why not buy an adaptor? Because my new card cost $7.75, which is less than the $5.95+shipping with the adaptor. Also, I used an adaptor with my previous card, which the Raspberry Pi managed to break. My old 8GB microSD card isn't even recognised by my laptop any more! Therefore I don't trust SD ada...

Re: SD Card Cutting Tutorial

If you are buying a new card why not get a MicroSD and an adapter?

Re: running gui from remote terminal

If you are connecting to the Pi via a Windows machine this may work well for you.

Re: 1080p?

Eben's book is also a good source. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Raspberry-User-Guide-Eben-Upton/dp/111846446X/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1359314633&sr=8-6 I will agree the book is great. I am not a complete n00b (only about 80%) but I still found this helpful as my 42 'TV' needs overscan help using HDMI.

Re: Shortbread

I am hoping this case reaches the goal. I think it is one of the best cases for the Raspberry Pi I have seen. The cable routing and the SD card are definitely the best solution I have seen.

I got a few naked RasPis that need this :!:
