Re: Polyfuse F3 / RasPi power circuitry flawed

If your in the US the Kaito PST-15U, also sold as IQ PST-15U is a rock solid 2a 5v supply.
Good supplies are hard to find, most are junk.

Re: PiCenter - A lightweight launcher for omxplayer

If I ever get some time and a PI I have been thinking about doing something similar using links and doing the search and lists and what not on the web server.
I do something similar using windows already.

Re: CPU 20% slower than BeagleBoard?

720Mhz A8 vs 700MHz A6

20% in some benchmarks isn't unreasonable.

It will probably help with the GPS also.

Re: pi pi connectivity bandwidth, without USB or Ethernet

actually I was over thinking it.

You could use nfs over crossover Ethernet to share the usb hd on one rpi and use 2 rpi instead of a file server or usb switch.

depending on load/speed issues.

Re: will pre-done card images be available?

I also use monoprice.com I order several hundred cables a year from them (network,hdmi,usb,some weird ones)

It has all been good stuff at great prices.

It is actually cheaper than my wholesale suppliers and generally better quality.
