Re: Next raspberry ethernet?

From that link...
However, the Pi Zero and Zero W have the same, single-core processor as the original Pi 1 that came out in 2012, and they sport just 512GB of RAM.
:shock:

I want one

Re: RGB Backlit Keyboard

Recently read that if your Pi draws more than 2A6 then the polyfuse would blow anyway, if it does switch off for a while (~24 hours) disconnect the keyboard and reconnect via a powered USB hub, no harm done.

Thanks Brian,

Primarily my language is Pascal though I do understand C, C++ even COBOL (That'll take you back a bit), I hope that I can interject just a little information to your readers but sorry no promises. I will buy your book though when sufficient funds are available.

Hi guys, Currently I subscribe to MagPi, HackSpace & Wireframe, these mags are usually stored in cardboard boxes at the moment.

Re: Are there any benefits from the Raspberry Pi using ARM?

They (RPF) made their bed, let them lie in it.

Been lying in that bed now for a few years, it's bloody comfy. I'm sure millions of other users agree but if the OP can come up with an SBC as successful as the Pi using an x86 processor (actually any SBC) I'm more than willing to listen.

Re: Want to use full 16gb of Sdcard rather than just the 4gb limitation by Fat-32

The 4 GB Fat32 limitation is a file size limitation, not a partition size limitation. Fat32 partitions can be bigger than 4 GB. Plus, the FAT partition is only the Boot partition. Although already answered just for further clarification alphanumeric is correct, file size is limited to 4GB but parti...

You got me there wildfire. I have not tried setting up a mail server since about 2000. In a matter of hours it had become a SPAM relay.

If you are running a mail server on a Pi or any other machine you have much bigger problems than ClamAV can fix. Elaborate please, I've been running mail servers for decades and many of the problems you seem to be implying are easily circumvented. If you were more explicit I could give details of t...

What is the purpose of the different names
Perhaps to add clarification, though as you discovered it only adds confusion.
and what are the limitations / features of the difference.
No difference and limitations are the same.

You're looking at the problem backwards, make the USB device bootable and boot from that (obviously limited to Pi 3b(+)'s). Then do all your work from the USB drive.

If your PSU supplies 5V DC then no problems but best to post details of aforesaid PSU (and a circuit diagram of how you intend to connect 2 devices to 1 PSU).

Re: Pi 3 at 80 Celsius with no load (dead?)

If you've tried another uSD card with a fresh image of latest Raspbian and it's still hitting those temperatures with nothing else connected (or running) then your Pi is fried.
