Colon in RSS feed causing parsing problems

Hi I'm trying to write a weather app that takes today's weather information from the BBC 3 day forecast. I'm managed to get most of the info out, but have become stuck trying to get feedparser to read the <dc:date> field. I'm guessing the colon is causing the problem but don't know how to get around...

Broken Pi!!!!

:-(

I have broken my pi... My finger slipped whilst plugging in the power and completely knocked off the capacitor next to it...

Edit; I have recovered it and managed to solder it back on. It's now working well once more. Let this be a warning to everyone to be gentle and careful with their Pi!

Re: SD, SDHC, SDXC

Out of interest, does the Raspberry-Pi work with new 64GB SDXC cards? I should expect it works fine with SDHC cards up to 32GB.

If it does, I can probably dispense with the NAS drive as my main music server storage, ergo less power usage!

Re: Second Batch.....

I don't see any reason why it should be long. So long as the first batch sells out quickly, they will have the capital to get the second batch knocked out, as that is their limiting factor at the moment, so all being well they could have it done and shipped out within a month I guess.

Re: Pi in 3rd world schools

<r>I just thought I'd let you know about a school my church is supporting. We're in the process of building another floor to their school and are planning various things to aid their education. I was talking to one of the charity trustees on Sunday and told him about the R-Pi and what it is for.<br/...

Re: Is there any implementation of a system clock?

That's good. Don't mind how often it needs to access, just as long as it'll do. I'm probably going to hook it up to a GPS device anyway.

Thank you.

Re: Is there any implementation of a system clock?

<t>I know there is no hardware clock or battery but is there any implementation of a time clock?<br/> <br/> The reason I ask is because I would like to run the R-Pi as a low power server and I have some applications which display the time around the house, dependent on this device.
