Re: Account recovery

Hi, I'll look into this: in the meantime can you PM me with the orignal user ID and the email you used to register the original (to prove credentials) and I'll reset your password for that account. ta. [just to try and troubleshoot: had anyone been able to log in to the new forums with their "o...

Re: I blame the red bull!

Is it some kind of techno-dogging, where a broadband dongle interfaces with the USB port whilst a battery pack slowly discharges? On a motorbike.

(It's just a wild guess, as I can see a Premier League footballer peeping out of the nettles.)

Would it also make sense to pull the entire armhf thread here http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=50&t=4256 into here too? ( I know it starts out deb, but is now really raspbian ) Perhaps this should be voted on? I wouldn't want to get shot for having a highly active thread moved!...

Re: Edit buttons gone astray?

Editing is only allowed within the first thirty minutes to stop people going back much later and editing their post to change meaning etc or even delete the whole content of a post. It's a pain for honest edits but we've found it necessary.

Having been working on a Pi remotely for over a month, and with one in front of me for five whole days (time flies when you're having fun! :) ), I'm of the firm opinion that it's perfectly fine for its intended use and when properly equipped with adequate peripherals ... In the end, it will be all ...
