Re: Account deletion?

Wow. 3 pages of discussion as to whether a SQL "DELETE FROM" or "UPDATE" command is able to be used. The simple answer is, of course Yes. You go into the database, do a bit of simple querying and then delete the data. Should be a 20 minute job, if that. The law change with regards to data removal wo...

Re: Why no Pi Zero with full sized connections?

I'm a bit curious about this one. I've been doing some math, comparing the Pi Zero to the Pi 3, and it seems that after you buy all of the adapters, hubs and such you need for many projects, a Pi 3 is just about the same end cost but a lot more convenient and capable. My question, why isn't there a...

Contact The Pi Hut if you want to buy in bulk as he'll need to work out shipping for a large shipment.

Python, using the GPIO Zero library would seem to be appropriate.

Re: Control Pi through the web

Take a look at Cayenne

I *think* it will do what you want it to do. It should theoretically allow you to remote-desktop into your Pi across the web.
