Having seen the other stuff that HomoFaciens has done, I suspect that he has made a sentient Pibot to nanoweld the case around itself, ship-in-a-bottle stylee.

There isn't, sorry. (I agree that the "active topics" search isn't that useful on large forums as even limiting results to 1 day using the drop down at the bottom of the page still returns a few hundred...)

What are you planning to do with it? people are much more likely to get on board if you inspire them and have some concrete projects in mind or even something completely mad to do with it :)

Re: Help ! I hate soldering.

Let's put home/amateur use into perspective: driving down to Maplins to buy lead-free solder will probably release a lot more (and varied) heavy metals into the biosphere than you would have caused by using the solder that you have in your shed drawer. This is a hunch, but if anyone has any figures ...

That is a lot! You could build 25 ephemeral equestrian stadia with that and still have 10 million quid left over to buy two or three horses.

Re: downloading Win32DiskImager

where did you get it from? (site / link) It shouldn't do this (doesn't do this). One of the good things about win32diskimager is that it is a standalone .exe with no install and no other third party rubbish - I suspect you've clicked on something else by accident.

Unfortunately, yours is another example of how suppliers wash their hands of responsibility. It is this attitude that is very frustrating for end users.

Good luck to them I say - the more people tinkering around with devices like this and learning about computing, electronics etc the better.

My PC has a metal case, as do things like my external hard drives, LCD mounting box etc. They all work good ;)

The material is not an issue: the design and manufacture is! :D
