Re: HELP PLEASE /etc/network/interfaces

I suggest you look into OpenVPN for the solution to your problem. It's free, fully configurable and could save you a lot of time. I use lubuntu 16.04 on my RPi3 and it's available via my package manager. It appears to be available for Raspian too. Here's an article outlining how to install it: https...

Re: Convince Me To Buy a Raspberry Pi 3

The Pi 3 seems like quite the upgrade from the 2. It has a 1.2GHz processor, faster RAM, Bluetooth and WiFi on board.
There you go. Convinced? ;)

Cheers.

A Wi-Fi Access Point should not create its own subnet.
The operative words being "should not", and you'd be right. However I have seen it happen due to default configuration files when used "automagically", hence I mentioned it.

Re: No internet access even though connected to network

You might try doing an iwconfig and see if your access point setup created a new subnet on the device. Generally speaking, an access point creates it's own WLAN using a different subnet. I suspect that may be your problem. As an alternative, a method I've used works that fairly well and doesn't requ...

Re: HTML gaming website

Seeing as HTML and HTML5 are web technologies and not bound to a particular platform or device, I'm not sure what you've asking. Unless you mean games made by RPi users, much like the Scratch project repository, that you can download. Otherwise, if you wish to create games for the RPi in HTML/HTML5,...

Re: Heating question

With limited or no air exchange, I would add a heatsink. Having one would allow the cpu to at least radiate heat more effectively by convection into the confined space instead of creating a single hotspot. The container itself would also benefit from any cooling fins or heatsinks you might be able t...

Re: Regarding installation and usage of Raspberry PI

I have the kit you are considering to buy and like it quite a bit. I've used it with a couple of generic HDMI monitors using the supplied HDMI cable and it worked fine. I didn't have to install or even tweak the video drivers. Personally, I think the 7 inch touchscreen might be a bit cramped for som...

Re: which SQL for Python 3 on raspbian

It's not a big problem to install or use. Google for "python 3 and mariadb". The first listing should teach you the basics you need to get things installed and connected.

Re: which SQL for Python 3 on raspbian

I like sqlite3 for RPi projects. Small footprint, few dependencies, good performance and works very well with Python 3. if you can do with a few command omissions I recommend it: https://www.sqlite.org/omitted.html
