Re: Recommendations on cameras and lens for motorised focus manipulation via raspberry pi board?

How about using a normal pi camera. Take a small servo with a Uln2003 driver (approx £5.00). Use 2 plastic gears, one attached to servo. The other one, drill and file the centre to fit the focus ring on pi camera (https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=43&t=46637#p518476) Mount servo so ...

Re: `Cannot Join if Under 13

OK, don't use them then! It's a simple choice. If you think the Foundation are selling your details to the highest bidder, then don't use the facilities (we don't sell anyone details btw, I don't know about Indiecity who run the PiStore, but I suspect they don;t either) Do you use Google? Amazon? T...

Re: `Cannot Join if Under 13

But, I can see at least one reason - advertising. Even free downloads need to be paid for (servers are not free), and your details are one way of paying for them Don't know about anyone else, but that sounds like selling our details to the highest bidder! They certainly don't need our personal deta...

Re: `Cannot Join if Under 13

People keep saying that the law is the law, and the site has to conform to the law.
The law ONLY takes effect when a site stores personal information on a user (eg. username/email address/password). What I dont understand is WHY do you require personal details for free software?

Re: `Cannot Join if Under 13

Everyone says that kids lying is a natural thing, but what i dont understand is why a site would ASK a child to lie just to get a free download??? Members have posted saying that the downloads are available on the internet, maybe they could tell me how they expect a newcomer to linux and the raspber...

Re: `Cannot Join if Under 13

I understand the rules regarding collecting personal info and the 13 law. I just don't understand why the Pi people have chosen to require personal information for free downloads? I thought the whole point of the Pi was to make it accessible to kids, and now they are encouraging kids to lie just to ...
