Re: Book/documentary on the history and story of the Pi

I have a vision of a book/documentary on the history of the Pi, the development of the board/choosing of the components (seems to be quite a story there, based on the blog posts), its impact on IT education and beyond (would have to wait a year or more for this though). Would someone be interested ...

No, wireless dongles draw too much power. Try using a powered hub.

Just been told I have to connect the I2C lines myself, and that connecting them to 3.3v shouldn't be an issue by the shop owner. Thoughts?

RTC Software

So, after the London Raspberry Pi Faces Meetup, I've ordered a cover for my raspberry pi, as well as a breadboard, RTC chip (1307), and all the other random stuff you need (cables, crystal, smoothing capacitor, battery, etc). I plan to connect the RTC to the Raspberry Pi over I2C. I understand it wo...

When I way "pure", I mean without python, perl, xorg... basically until you got down to what you'd have if you installed the "desktop" version of debian.

AFAIK you have to wait for somebody to post a "cleaned" version for you. I would also appreciate just debian, no packages you don't "need".

Also, if anyone who has been following the Raspberry Pi for longer than I have wants to write a two page spread (with pictures, so not two pages in reality) about the "story" of the Raspberry Pi (from Eben's idea in 2006, to release date, and possibly to the first unboxing videos, and Pi's arriving)...

Re: Unofficial RaspPi for Beginners - Youtube Channel starte

Your URL still doesn't mention your unofficial-ness. I don't know if that's OK - I guess it should be because the user would click the URL and find out that this is unofficial, but you might want to check that, better to start again now than a year or so down the line! http://gyazo.com/6da07f88dfa46...
