The revision number is 1000002 so it is a Revision 1, 256MB and the over volt bit has been blown.

Re: Male to Male Jumper Cables

I installed a female header on my pi Zero W and the Male/Male wires work just fine, good tension. They will not work in the header holes with any chance of reliability. I like this better than using a male header! The pins are not exposed to being shorted this way. You can still connect it wrong and...

Re: RPi 3 combined with Arduino...

As he said; The Arduino adds Real Time Control (RTC). There are different Arduino's that can be chosen. The Raspberry Pi will send commands to the Arduino that it will carry out to control projects. Arduino's are used as controllers in Laser Engraver's, CNC, some 3D printers. But they can be used co...

Re: Advice requested for use as small file server

An inexpensive USB 2.0 HDD would be best, if you will be keeping the files long term. Long term storage stability. If short term then USB sticks would work fine. I have had a WordPress server up and running for years. It survives power outages and brownouts and keeps ticking along. Some card corrupt...

Re: Zebra Zero Plus Breadboard case.

The female header with male/male wires works well. I tried a T-Cobbler, from Adafruit, it takes up too much space on the breadboard. I use PuTTY and XRDP To control the system remotely (headless). I have also tried a Rii wireless keyboard with dongle and a true Bluetooth keyboard with mouse pad. All...

Re: convert 12V to 5V

Re: Powering a PI from 12.5V in?

A LM2596 board is a useful thing to have around. I have used them in several DC/DC projects. The newer digital version boards are nice as you do not need to dig up a voltmeter to set them. But the cigarette lighter adapter guts is simple and I have used them before also. Best is they are ready avail...

Re: Pi Access with Tablet/Smart Phone

You can use SSH to run it CLI (Command Line Interface). If you want to use it through the desktop then install xrdp and use remote desktop to get in! Then you can use the tablet or phone touchscreen. I have not tried RDP under adhoc, but it is supposed to work.

Re: Guide to installing WordPress

Did you open port 80 in your router?
it looks like that is what is causing this.

Or the settings in WordPress are just not quite right yet. make sure you open port 80.

On thingiverse there are some micro-sd card extenders for 3D printers. The printrbots have a uSD that is hard to get in and out. They work pretty well, clamp onto the card.

No, the sound will work. The setting to get sound is in /boot/config.txt. sudo nano /boot/config.txt You just have to remove the hash from in front. That usually gets the sound working on the Lapdock. Just read the remarks in the file until you find it. hdmi_drive=2 A couple more settings there are...
