Re: For the Beginners

<t>+1 to beginners forum, right here.<br/> <br/> I think that'll be a great help. I'd imagine some of the 'experts' would drop in and do an R-Pi for dummines thread sometimes (or at least, I hope so xD) and it'll keep us newbz out of the high-level threads asking "Durr, can you explain that a bit be...

Re: "Clive", Gove, teaching and "ICT" in UK Schools

<t>I'm currently an Apprentice IT Technician at a public secondary school in the UK and I'd love some kind of afterschool class with Pi's (even though I don't know how much use I'd be there - I know naff all about Linux). Unfortunately, I doubt the kids here really have much interest in it. I'll sti...

Re: Portable screens that dont cost an arm and a leg

<t>Projector instead of a monitor.. did NOT think of that..<br/> <br/> I think I'd have to use a powered USB hub, though I'm guessing said projector would need to pull its power through USB, and the idea of an on-screen keyboard would be moot if there wasn't an actual screen xD So that's Projector, ...

Re: Rechargeble batteries suitable for the RPi?

<t>Because if you can hook a battery up to it, and a touch-screen (and install an on-screen keyboard) it WILL be portable There's a few touch-screen discussions going on here-and-there. I intend to buy a 2nd release Pi and hopefully by then someone'll have discovered an iron-clad working touchscreen...

Re: Rechargeble batteries suitable for the RPi?

Actually, I was looking at that very same battery earlier today, but didn't see the charger/booster and thus was unsure if it would have been any good.. I shall keep it in mind.
