Re: Why is Farnell selling the board for £29.46 inc vat?

<t>Thanks  Jongoleur for the explaination. I only posed the question and did not state there was a problem. Otherwise my post would have been "The robbing *&%^$£  farnell are charging more than RS". Compare that to how I posed the question. If people are so angry about a simple question then it ...

Re: Why is Farnell selling the board for £29.46 inc vat?

<t>@nmcc.<br/> <br/> This was a valid question to ask. Note I did not say that there was anything wrong with it, as I said "I was curious". Answering the post with 1) EU law says it can, is not really answering the specific question. Otherwise Farnel would be breaking the law, which I am sure they a...

Re: Is it possible to hack a EKEN M001 tablet screen to be used by the rasberry pi.

<t>A long time ago I bought an eken m001, just to see how bad a chinese made andriod tablet could be. For anybody who is interested the answer is quite bad. However, I think the screen is good and the right size for something like the rasberry pi. Any electronics experts out there, can you tell me i...

Re: Finally 2012 a year of Linux

One of the disasters is supposed to be a giant solar flare that will send out a giant magnetic pulse that will destroy most electronic equipment.<br/> <br/> Liz if you are reading this, I know you are going to make cases for the Rpi, but have you considered man...

Re: How come there are so many Raspberry Pi haters?

<t>My cents worth. I wish the rasberry pi every success. People think that students need massive computers with lots of memory to be able to program. Well maybe later on when they start using memory intensive game engines, but everybody who started to learn to program (and I dont care for the odd ex...
