Re: Firefox

Thanks for the info - I'd have gone with 'Water Vole' as it is an animal that I know actually exists. still it's better than 'Ice Rabbit'. I expect that someone will now tell me that Ice Weasels actually do exist and share a habitat with arctic foxes and arctic hares.

Re: Attacknid

I opened up my spare controller and its gagging to be hacked. The PCB actually has 10x empty spots next to the switch contacts that seem to have been purposely included for this very purpose/testing/development. I took some great photos that I wanted to post here but I no longer have webspace to lin...

Re: Basic on the system

this is childish. People can use whatever they want to - no need for anyone to 'promote' or denegrate anything. Actually there are 2 BASICS on RISC OS. BASIC V - a very capable interpreter (provided for free) and ABC - a vary capable BASIC compiler (available for purchase as part of the DDE in the N...

Re: gcc and RISC OS

Nice - a BBC BASIC compiler is pretty cool!

None of those DDE features are described here https://www.riscosopen.org/content/sales/nutpi and I cannot find any elsewhere.

Does it come with operating instructions / a reference manual?

Re: Lightweight 2-DOF turntable?

You can buy special servo braclets.... or.... you can just stick two servos together back to back with epoxy! One servo arm could attach to the turn table platform and the other to the base - the base would need an additional hinged support oposite the attached arm.

Re: Unhappy with RS

Its good to hear that RS are talking to you and that you have the option to cancel (and buy a Pi elsewhere). When I bought my Pi it was when they first became available about a year ago - there was no confusion as to the fact that everyone was pre-ordering and that waiting was involved. I think I ha...

If you are referring to OS_Claim - I'll try it from GCC as soon as I get a spare SD card.....

....If you are referrig to the I2C code using OS_memory - it works just fine :)

Re: Model A price point

I guess the people with small orders from RS are paying the 'free' p&p for those with bigger orders, and that our American cousins are paying for our 'free' p&p here in the UK.
