Re: Mounting the PI on another board

The other components would get in the way. In that case you might want to create a standoff by using stacked headers. Did a quick search and this is a male stacked header for example: http://www.samtec.com/documents/webfiles/pdf/EW_TH.PDF I'm pretty sure there should be a female version on the mark...

Re: It has finally arrived. :D

My 512Mb Farnell board delivered yesterday is different in almost every component. The most obvious: * Blue audio socket * USB socket labelled and without the foldover metal tab * RJ45 socket has no labelling * HDMI socket has different cut-outs * TP1 differently labelled * C32 orange not black * C...

Re: What OS for just downloading ?

How about running it in terminal mode and using rtorrent to download your torrents? You can then access your Pi through SSH (from Windows use Putty for example). That way you wont have the overhead of the desktop environment, VNC, etc. and the Pi basically only needs resources for rtorrent. I'm usin...

Re: RS refund timescale

Indeed, no refund - but in return you do get A RASPBERRY PI! That's true. I will in fact get 2, since I placed an order at another supplier after cancelling with RS :lol: As a follow-up, I received my Raspberry Pi from RS components today. There's hope people, but it seems they (RS) fail to send ou...

Re: New IT (UK) Supplier

I made my order two days ago with, aparently, no notifications from them since I discovered two emails, purchase confirmation and shipping confirmation, this morning labeled as spam. I can confirm this. My shipping notificati...

Re: RS refund timescale

Well, it seems I wont be getting my refund after all: Good Morning, Apologies for the delayed response to your query, but as your order was dispatch Thursday 4th October I’m afraid we are unable to cancel it. What we can ask is that you either refuse delivery when your order reaches you or fill out ...

Re: RS refund timescale

Cancelled my order a few minutes ago and filed a Paypal dispute to keep additional tabs on my refund. I will post a status update when I get my refund. Did you pay for your order less than 45 days ago? My dispute was closed for that reason :( No, my order and payment dates back from 26 June 2012. I...

Re: New IT (UK) Supplier

I see from the pictures the power supplies are models for UK sockets (3-pin). Is there an option to purchase a similar supply for European sockets?
