Who remembers Dunnet?

Dunnet was/is a great game that provide a many hours of entertainment for some (including myself) in the 90's. It since has become an obscure title that few have heard of. It is only preserved in emacs. Few people use emacs and less play the games that are part of it. emacs -batch -l Dunnet is the c...

Re: Max SD card size?

The SDHC standard has a maximum card size of 32GiB. SDXC cards (i.e. SD standard v3.0) support up to 2TiB. SDXC cards are known to work on the Pi. Your oversize USB pendrive is likely not accessible for writing because of the filesystem. There is no inherent limitation on the size of mass storage d...

Removing directories and the stuff in them.

Re: Overclocking

Some people who overclock modify the core speed, and the script is designed to simulate a few weeks of wear of the sd at that core speed. If you scroll up a small amount, and read the page you will understand why this test is useful. Also, I already voided the warrenty on my Pi a long time ago, and ...

Just as PowerPC faded away x86 will too. ARM will soon have its turn to dominate the market. I hope the ARM phase will last for a while.
