Re: Copying the SD Card

From windows you can use Win32DiskImager to read the SD card to a file, then you can use it again to write that file to another SD card.

From linux you can use DD, although I don't know how to use that off the top of my head.

Indeed, but it satisfies it for practical purposes, and if anyone really demands that you personally provide them with the sources then why can't you just post a DVD then? edit: I had a little nosey around - for a noncommercial project you can just link to where you got the source from.

helpme, The problem with the GPL and Pi based products is this: 1) You ship a product to me that includes a Pi and Raspian and your application. 2) Most of that Raspian is GPLed. 3) Therefore under the terms of the GPL you have to be able to provide me, if I ask, with all the source code needed to ...

Re: Project idea: Pool Water Leveler

I've seen ballcocks used in feeding troughs in the middle of fields, I'm going to guess that they're probably about as reliable as the water-tightness of the pool. Plus a nice easy "is the water the right height" sensor would be a ballcock, so you might as well just cut out the electronics?

Re: Really slow writing to my NAS over Wi Fi

Probably just the Wifi that's slowing you down, 20mins would mean 6MB/s which doesn't sound too bad. If possible I'd try switching it to a channel no-one else is on, otherwise I think your only realistic option will be to try a cable. edit: think that calculation is out by something. Still, 20mins ...

The edimax by itself will definitely be fine, I've got one and it's even happy on the old rev 1 Pi. I've used a wireless logitech keyboard with the pi directly as well, and that was fine. I've not tried both on the same pi.

I've been mucking about with the camera trying to get the delay down as low as possible.

Skip the middle man and just forward port 8081 to 192.168.1.102? You'll want to make it static to survive reboots. Searching for port forwarding should find you lots of info.

Re: NFC options?

I don't know how you could get much more direct than USB? There are quite a few UART NFC board out there, all they would require is ensuring they're 3.3 volt happy and connecting them straight to the right pins of the pi.
