Re: New Raspbian release "2016-11-25"

I think it's a good decision for the Pi ecostructure. Hope the gaggle IoT device manufacturers out there follow your lead. What collections of morons decided that was a good idea? How brain dead is that? I was one of the collection, and I stand behind the decision. We have a responsibility to protec...

Re: ARMv8 instructions.

David, I applaud your approach (but I do think you're selling HLCs a little short. Having said that, I've been developing strictly in assembler on s370 (hence my nic) 68xxx and i286/386 since since they first existed. I have never written a line of Cobol, C (anything) etc etc but countless times I'v...

Look closer
The updated Pi 2 Model B design is based around a Broadcom BCM2837 SoC (same as the Pi 3) Quad Core ARMv8 processor running at 900 MHz just like the original Pi 2.

Same here. I blame it on aging highly functioning brain cells, starting to fade away, lots of that happening, apparently.

Re: NWAZT cases ?

Nwazet went out of business a while ago, and sold off their remaining stock.
Love their cases (I have 3). Wish they were still in production.

Edit: Modmypi currently shows 250+ in stock. Looks like Modmypi took over production, yaaaay.

It holds it's own - barely . Edit: Forgot to mention it's also powering a DS3231 RTC, and a voltage divid...

Dougie, That is so wrong. Java is C++ without all the awful crud and complexity. That is so wrong. Java forces all programs to be class based. C++ does not. To my mind this makes them fundamentally different. Even before we start talking about the huge and slow JVM. You can't even get at memory in ...

Re: New Programming Language

W. H. Heydt, ...it's [C] pretty much a glorified assembly language. As it happens the ARM processor as used in the Pi is a lot nicer to program in assembler than the Intel x86 of the PC world. Couldn't agree more. If one really wants to learn the fundamentals of programming the Pi (or any ARM chip)...
