Re: generate lorem ipsum

So you can copy the text output of a python program. So I could just generate an eBook if I wanted to.

Re: Publish your hacks as apps!

Wouldn't it be easier to describe the hack in PDF form and sell that?

Re: What is your main purpose of the PI?

The browser crashes but my laptop after 3 years of use refused to go on the internet at all. The browser displays a more mobile version of a website but they've been cracking down on websites to be mobile compliant so a lot of stuff works.

Re: espeak

Try inputting something as long as a paragraph or two into espeak and it will slowdown and warp.

sudo apt-get install emulator

Does anyone know of any emulators I can apt-get for raspbian? I got Stella working and it's real cool but I was wondering if there were anymore I can get without the hassels of retropie.

I forfeit. The closest thing I could find was the reason other clones may not compatible which is definitely not the same.

Re: Quote without comment... [Avagos / Broadcom takeover rum

I saw every possible Eben interview and I swear he said the compatibility of the pi1 and pi2 was not possible for a pi3. Now I got to spend an hour rewatching interviews or admit I'm full of it.

Re: Quote without comment... [Avagos / Broadcom takeover rum

I'm pretty sure Eben said the next raspberry pi soc will not be backwards compatible. That's what I was referring to. My point was I'm staying positive. I am chill.

Re: Quote without comment...

The raspberry pi is going to go through a major transition next generation with a new system on a chip not compatible with previous models. I have faith the raspberry pi will move ahead despite this deal which will happen more likely than not.
