Re: Tablet.

I guess worst case scenario, you could always put the appropriate resistor between the PS and the monitor... right? Oh, I think that's what you meant by "additional regulator". If you do go that route, it shouldn't be more than 50 cents more for the resistor right?

Re: Search forum quirk

I went ahead and posted the question to the Mingle Forum's Forum. Also it turns out that not being able to search both by user or a site wide search (sorry Michael) is a known issue that they hope to address with the next update.

Re: Tablet.

<t>Actually, from what someone else was telling me the r-pi will not be able to be powered with 5V. The issue, as I understood it so take this with a grain of salt, was that you can't both be powered by 5V and provide power for a 5V USB as well. But you up the Voltage a little and it all works out (...

Re: Adding a Powerswitch (Difficulty: Beginner)

<t>At this point in time, we know that the r-pi is not planned to have a traditional "ON/OFF" switch or button, so I was thinking why not just make one ourselves?
