Cool, setup your Pi to have a fixed IP both with router and Pi, if needed install apache and we'll go from there.

Re: Class room testing, don't know where to start

OK, Start by googling Apache, that'll get your intranet server running.

A couple of more questions (which you have addressed but I want to be clear).

1) Your server will not be connected to the internet (security issues)?

2) Your WiFi router is yours and configured by yourself?

I see no problems with what you want to do...

What issues are you having problems with, setting up a web server, producing the web page(s), making sure all students answer etc?

Thanks Martin, As your research showed Prue was replaced by Paige. My annoyance was the power of three... It gets stuck in my mind, when the episodes show... Piper, Phoebe, and Prue.

Yes, as explained above there's missing/misleading information in your post.

How often have you borked your SD card? Is it the same one or different one's? Are they from the same supplier? Are they reputedly from the same manufacturer?

A small thought, if even for a moment we all agree to disagree without conflict what a wonderful world that moment would be. So perhaps another moment, maybe another.

Fantasy thinking I know, but still something to think about.

Happy New Year To All.

Non synthetic super rear. 1) Non synthetic, I'd argue with that. 2) super rear[sic], so you admit that not many Pi users would see the benefit of your test [see 1)] but you would happily ask a charity organisation to spend hundreds of thousands if not millions of £'s for a small gain that few would...

Re: Got a question rapsberry hdmi vs rca connectors

As posted, composite video is not going to look good with any modern computers (modern as in mid 80's+). It will be best to use HDMI->HDMI or failing that use a HDMI->VGA convertor. Make sure it is a convertor not simply an adapter. Another thing to consider is running headless, if you have a laptop...
