Re: gstreamer 1080p deconding and big stock availability

<t>Hi Ricardo,<br/> <br/> I believe a lot of what you *require* will be available.<br/> <br/> Perhaps if there are any gaps between your requirements and the raspberry pi, you could fill them yourself rather than waiting for someone else to implement them, and pass on the results to the Foundation a...

Re: 2nd PI

@kme


I may not be the most polite poster, but I take no nonsense just be course someone doesn"t know basics.


Just for your information, the correct usage is "... just because someone doesn't know basics."

Re: Which language would you choose to teach programming on the RPi?

<t>I've been looking at pyGame lately - I think this would be a great place for kids to start, as it offers more-or-less instant gratification, with lots of examples they can adapt to their own purposes.<br/> <br/> Also, they start to learn OO development, which of course is very powerful.<br/> <br/...

Re: BASIC - more harmful than useful?

<t>Absolutely, Liz, there's no such thing as a bad place to start - if kids start off on BASIC (as I did, many years ago) and enjoy the challenge of creating something, they'll quite likely move onto something more "powerful" of their own volition.<br/> The wide availability of great languages for f...

Re: TinkerForges Bricks and RaspberryPi

<t>Great find, this looks like a LOT of fun.<br/> <br/> Building from source should be easy enough (as you say, as long as there aren't any exotic dependencies.<br/> <br/> For non-Linux folks, it's usually as simple as:<br/> <unpack the release><br/> ./configure<br/> make<br/> make install<br/> <br/...

Re: Could use some help with SD-card programming

<t>I don't know if there's a security/confidentiality issue with this suggestion, but if you have a slow-ish but working method of (re)producing the SD cards, why not farm it out to us?<br/> If there's a semi-automated method that works on Linux, I have a couple of Ubuntu Linux machines that I'd be ...

Re: Android + Raspberry Pi + Microcontroller = Intelligent gadgets with everything possible

Assuming a port of some HTTP server (any offers?), just use the web browser on your 'phone - that's what I'm hoping to do - an easy interface both ways (user interface and 'phone to R-Pi interface).
R-Pi to Arduino etc sounds like the interesting bit - let's concentrate on that!
