Re: Wordpress Server

Andras,

I like your blog. Very informative. I'm amazed at how fast it is as well (assuming it really is running on your Pi). Another project to have a go at!

Regards

Re: BerryClip 6 LED Buzzer Board

Reporting back as promised. Bought this little board as a present to help my son (11) learn python and start some basic electronics. After a bit of practise with a breadboard and some very simple circuits we moved on to learn to solder. In the meanwhile we used the Khan Academy to start to learn pyt...

Excellent stuff. I ordered a 3.5" vga screen with something like this in mind but you've done it so much better than I could. Promptly nicking everything (if that's OK)

Re: raspi tor node

Yes, I understand how tor works. It was this bit: " torifying apache, instead of running apache normally and applying it as a hidden service after the non-secure port 80 is already open" that suggested you might be hiding your IP without running a hidden service. I think I know what you mean now. In...

Re: raspi tor node

I'm rather outside of my comfort zone here! I don't really understand how you could run an anonymous blog (say) without using hidden services (or similar on other dark networks). Otherwise would you not have to provide a traceable address?

Re: raspi tor node

I've had another look and it's much easier to read even if it's less visually "interesting" (I get what you mean about the phosphor trail but it was a sod to read). I'm not sure that a torrified SD image is the way to go. If anonymity was of life-threatening importance to me then I wouldn't download...

Re: raspi tor node

Thanks very much, that's really helpful.

It looks like there may be some kind of comment plug-in for nanoblogger but I haven't looked into it yet.

I'm going to have a go at using nanoblogger to set up my own hidden service when I have the time.

Re: raspi tor node

Hi, Just had a look at your tor blog - nanoblogger looks interesting. There seems to be no way to leave comments. I would suggest that you alter the green text on a green background as it induced a headache in about 3 secs. The blog loads impressively quickly on tor and esp running on a RPi. I would...

Re: No sound on 2012-12-16-wheezy-raspian

@ lewmur Alsamixer is still present on the latest release. It seemed to be using PulseAudio as it's "soundcard" if that makes sense (I'm something of a newbie!). Without PulseAudio it defaults to Alsamixer. Note to others having problems: you can control Alsamixer from terminal with command "alsamix...

Pete6, Thank you, I owe you a beer. I have spent hours trying to get audio to function. I've tried everything in the Wiki, read the RPi user guide, searched Google and nothing worked. Got rid of pulseaudio as you suggested and that did the trick. Perhaps someone with an account could make a note in ...

Re: Anyone up for a Jam in Leeds?

So,

A big thank you to Sonikblue for organising this (and demonstrating the most sophisticated retroPi enclosure ever seen) and a big thank you to Leeds Hackspace. It was fun and a few wise dudes answered some pressing questions.

Thanks Guys

Re: Tests wanted: Tor, Freenet & I2P

I'll give it a go once I've got my Pi. I've been running a tor relay node for about a year on a linux box I set up as a server to teach (actually, to learn from) my son. It's really easy to set up - this chap was very helpful - http://www.darkcoding.net/society/running-a-tor-relay-node-server-on-ubu...
