Hmm, looks like that page could do with some updates. Bit busy at the moment, so won't be right away.

Re: Suspicious Network Activity?

I bought my Pi 3B from China, and given that I can't deduce the culprit from within the os, the sericum hardware doesn't fill me with confidence either. What do you mean by Sericum? Are you saying that you believe the HW is compromised because it came from China? As long as its really is a Raspberr...

Because indentation is important in Python and general forum software strips it out, you should always put programs inside "code" tags.

Re: OSError: Unable to open file ,Please help thnaks a lot.

Might be useful to know what you were trying to do rather than just providing a stack trace.

Usual reasons for not being able to open a file

It doesnt exist
You are looking for it in the wrong place
Permissions don't allow you to open it
You opened it to write and it is write protected

Re: Camera Preview

Not easily. The preview is 'applied'' to the output of the Pi right at the end of video processing, its sort of 'superimposed' on the output. This means that things like remote desktops, which mirror the frame buffer, or ssh which is a text protocol, have no idea that the preview is even there. VNC ...

Interestingly, I had noticed that moderation stuff was working much better, not killing the rest of the forum when I ban people (l...

Re: About Rasberry lenguage

Yes, our distro (Raspbian) can be set to Spanish.

There is a third party version of Ubuntu, but we recommend Raspbian. Both Raspbian and Ubuntu are based off Debian, but Raspbian is more tailored and tuned to the Raspberry Pi.

Re: CMOS Camera with Raspberry Pi

Without details of the interface used, going to be difficult to help.

It sounds like it might be outputting composite video, so you would need some sort of composite capture board, might be able to find a USB device that does that.

Is Python's extension library as extensive as Perl?

I would be interested in why you think Python is better than Perl.

Python vs. Perl
perl is fairly awful, so its not difficult for Python to be better. Perl syntax is rather obtuse, at least Python is better in that respect.
