Re: What did your first programs do?

I started with Basic, then moved to Z80 ASM, then X86 ASM, then PHP and finally C. I also played with some PICs and they UGLY asm, and learned a but of ARM ASM, but my language of choice is C.

Re: I2C programming

<t>One of the first things I will do when I get my board is to install a barometric sensor (BMP085).<br/> I did that with a PIC and the programming is straight forward, because there is no OS, so no need to worry about drivers and stuff.<br/> So I was wondering how would we be able to access the I2C...

Re: overclocking

<t>I don't think it should need any cooling (maybe a small heatsink) up to ~1ghz or so. We are talking low power ARM here, not a 125W desktop CPU.<br/> My N900 is clocked at 650 mhz, I keep mine at 850 and it barely gets warm. Some people pushed it as far as 1.1ghz, and no one reported problems. Tha...

Re: Compatible hardware

<t>I would guess any device that has open source Linux drivers should work on it. Keyboards and mice should work out of the box. USB sticks and drives should also work out of the box. You would need a powered USB hub for serious stuff, of course.<br/> Model B has 256 ram instead of 128, and I think ...

Re: RaspberryPi "clone"?

Too expensive, and no USB output, so very limited in functionality.

Re: RasPi as a camcorder

<t>I recently got a Logitech 1080p Webcam Pro C910 for my desktop, and it seems like a very capable little camera. It can be set to capture RAW images, but it has no h.264 hardware compression. However, it has a huge sensor for a web cam (1/2.5") and I think only 5MP, so the pixels are pretty big fo...

Re: Low profile construction

I also support this idea. I want to place this boar inside a USB hub, so I don't need the USB or power connectors anyway.

Re: Putting the Raspberry Pi inside a powered USB hub case

<r>First post here.<br/> I plan to get two boards, the A type for some hardware project, and a B type for some sort of media server and general use computer.<br/> I was thinking, since for the most stuff we will need more than 2 USB ports, and since there will be no custom case for it, why not put t...
