Re: Pine64+ a good deal?

Being a bit ancient and with poor eyesight, I don't try any more to keep up with the absolute latest alleged advances in applied technology but the Pine64, of which, thanks to you, I have now some information, which seems more to indicate a hope than a promise. When and if this actually comes to ma...

Re: raspberrypi zero + wifi and Bluetooth

I think the new Raspberry PI 3D (whenever it comes out) should have a real time clock and build in WIFI.

(Last word I had from the Lemon Pi folks is that they will actually ship Roseapple Pis to those that supported the Lemon Pi IGG campaign. I may get mine in time for Xmas...maybe.)

That's because the PI-Zero aka the Hero has an Armv6 processor and the PI ultimate 2 has an Armv7 processor so the architecture is different, so that's why you are getting "illegal instruction"

Well, I was hoping to start some Raspberry Pi type sessions in my local library - but somehow I seem to have ended up arranging a knitting session instead. Not what I had hoped. The wife seems to have had a hand in this somewhere. Maybe I can convince the knitters to look at a Pi or two over time? ...

You only have one copy of months of work?

If it was important you'd have several copies in several different places.
'Print/echo "hello world" ' is a hard important code you need to always have a backup for that.

Re: Playing 4k video in 1080p mode?

The only way you can watch your videos on the raspberry pi is if you convert your 4k video to 1920x1080p.
The GPU of the PI can't handle 4k videos.
