Yes, I fully agree. I'll have to do some more testing (putting load on the RPi) before making bold statements ;-)

I have no peripherals attached to the Pi - just the RS-supplied USB power supply and a network cable. It...

Re: Prevent SD-Card Corruption

I've been seeing VERY frequent SD-Card corruption, unfortunately. I can leave my Raspberry on for a few days without logging in, and corruption is virtually guaranteed. Re-image the card, everything is fine. Wait a while, and the mmcblk0 errors appear. Hardware: Raspberry Pi 256MB (first edition, fr...
