Re: Raspberry pi Solderpads ripped off somehow?

I'm afraid that's toast. You'll have got the pad too hot, and it'll have delaminated from the board: you won't be able to resolder it because it'll have taken a bunch of other infrastructure with it.

Re: Usb Dvd tray (not self powered)

If there's anybody in the world who can help with this, it'll be Akira "Akkie" Ouichi in Japan, who has been messing around with CD and DVD drives and using them as solenoids, hamster feeders and fashion accessories (really) for at least the last ten years.

Re: fail2ban not working inside VPN.

I think you're labouring under a misapprehension about what "personal data" comprises. It means your real name, your address and other identifying information (none of which we keep a record of): not a record of you losing your temper under a pseudonym on the internet. I've issued a ban. We have a p...

Re: Claim for an Ubuntu sub-forum

The reason we've been reluctant to do this is that there are *so* many distros we don't support, that the "Other" section is at risk of getting kind of massive. I'm aware, though, that a floodgates argument is almost always a bad one, and you guys are consistent in your requests for an Ubuntu forum:...

Re: Network fails after rebooting but fine after shutting down

I've checked the manifest, and Yanewby's not being quite straightforward here. For more, please see GitHub. There's quite a lot of...fibbing going on.

OK. Best I've been able to do here is to rename the ScriptBasic account John_Spikowski (note underscore; we couldn't use John Spikowski because there was an existing account with that name). Sorry this happened; I hope this works for everybody.

I like that. There's a pi sticker on my luggage to help spot it on the conveyor belt when flying. A bit of a niche use case, but a tag like the one you linked would be nice. I need to be careful not to fly on the same plane as you; I'm using the same method to ID my bags! (I used to have a frozen c...

We're going to be kicking off some new swag soon, and have been kicking ideas around about new logo-festooned STUFF for you to buy. What would you like to see? (Can't promise everything you ask for, but we'll consider everything!)

I promise we will revisit the umbrella question.

Re: any news yet on the PI3A??

The market for the model A is actually pretty enormous, but it's not you guys: it's almost entirely industrial customers (who tend to order in batches of many thousands at a time). It's a bit of an anomaly, in that you're unlikely to see one in the wild, but there are a lot out there.
