RPi reseller pack / promo materials etc

Hi

We have just set up a small village computer shop.

There are at least 3 schools in the area and because of this we want to resell the pi.

Are there any promo materials or a pack that can be purchased [posters etc]

Thanks

Basic Env - Sense HAT + WeeWX?

Is it possible to do cheap env monitoring using the Sense HAT and maybe an LDR to get some basic parameters logged online? Anyone done this? Was thinking Temp/Press/Humid/Light would do for now Maybe it would be cheaper to do this with discrete sensors - but then how to get data into something usabl...

Network Stats

What is the most reliable way to get eth0 stats? I am a bit confused about the disparity between the following... # cat /proc/net/dev bytes packets eth0: 699814 5578 # cat /sys/class/net/eth0/statistics/rx_packets 5598 # ifconfig eth0: RX packets 5623 bytes 703775 (687.2 KiB) Thanks :)

A great follow up article would be the steps required to do the desktop customizations?

i.e. what did you do to get that look?

GTK Themes, LXDE Themes, Wallpaper etc?

Browsers & YouTube Sound - a stab in the dark!

Ok so I reviewed the following browsers on my Pi3 pretty much in this order; Links2, Dillo, NetSurf, Iceweasel, Chromium, Midori It felt to me as though, whilst not ideal in all situations, that Midori had the best trade off between speed and functionality. Both Chrome and Firefox where too laggy fo...

Re: [GUIDE] Raspbian Lite with LXDE or XFCE GUI

Great guide although I am surprised as this is 'lite' the author chose xfce / lxde over say something like i3 or one of the 'boxes' - anyway this gets me something akin to Arch with less bother - setting up wifi from cli was a cinch and everything else [so far] has been dead easy to setup! Top job!
