Re: RESET & POWER input at the 1.27mm pin-strip

Does anyone know how easy it is to get headers and flatcables for 1.27mm? So far it seems not that easy to find them anywhere on the net....

Re: Howtos?

Would it be an idea to have an Howto section? These Howtos can describe how to access your Raspberry Pi, setup a development environment, recover your Rasperry, programming I/O, etc?

Re: Challenge the Mac

Just use some sticky tape and stick the Raspberry Pi to the back of your monitor :-)
But believe me, I use an iMac and its not that handy as it looks. I prefer to have a laptop as you can carry it with you and connect it to a big screen if needed...

Update it on http://www.gravatar.com and it will be automatically used on Raspberry Pi. Use the same email address on gravatar.com as with Raspberry PI.

Thinking of a device to scare cats like done here: Raspberry Pi can be used for the motion detector, taking pictures. etc.. It's not the intention to hurt cats, just scare them 8-)

Re: Introduce yourself!

@Liz, just out of curiosity; when the Raspberry Pi was introduced a few months ago, it was presented a bit as David Brabens project. But you just mentioned it's actual Eben's? What's Davis part here exactly then?

I am programming for more than 25 years and worked with assembler, Pascal, C, C++, Python, Perl etc. Although I find Python very easy for an OOP languague I found it relatively difficult to learn C++ for example as the concept of objects can be a bit overwhelming. Start simple I would say....

the GPU is a Broadcom proprietary GPU that Eben was on the architecture team for Does this mean that the Raspberry Pi team has written some drivers for this chip so it is supported by Linux?
