Re: What's the plural of Raspberry Pi.

"Pi's" contains a grocer's apostrophe. Bad, bad, bad. Hippy is quite correct when he says it indicates the possessive. As to the comment about "2 Pi R", that is a mathematical equation, not a form of prose, so the rule that is being implied is not applicable. Alas, Archimedes was Greek, so perhaps w...

Re: Automatic setup for RTL8188CUS based wifi adapters

Here's my report. I don't quite know why, but it sems to be working. After an upgrade bricked the ting, I went back to the original Foundation image and loaded up MrEngman's script. It ran, but I didn't want to try and enter the 64 character WPA passkey for my network because it is a load of random ...

Re: Automatic setup for RTL8188CUS based wifi adapters

Thanks for the quick reply! :) OK, I followed your suggestion but still no joy (with the NIC plugged into the PI). Then I noticed the capslock light flash on the keyboard, which means a USB disconnect / reconnect, which on my setup means power problems. Plugged the Lapdock into the mains and redid t...

Re: Maplin N150 Nano Wifi USB Dongle

Nope. That search gives nothing that matches the OP's catalogue number (A71LB). Obviously, I would like to be sure it is the same one as I would like to be sure it will work properly... Oh incidentally, N150 is used by Edimax, Netgear, Belkin, TP-Link, Sitecom (and others I imagine) in their product...

I'm trying this with a PNY 4Gig Class 4 card. I observe no increase in speed - what type of card are you using?

The default settings for 0.6.2 image were 840mhz for the arm and 375mhz for the GPU.

These are going to work for even less people!

Yep, had to file my plug down too (the one on my Lapdock Y connector). Unfortunately the only other cable I have - a Kindle charging cable - won't fit.

Re: Pibow (a colourful case for your Raspberry Pi)

I see nothing special:

- PIMO RONI logo
- PIBOW.COM logo
- A row of five heart icons, the last one is half filled.
- Some ventilation holes.
- SD Card icon, indication the orientation.

That's all I can see. Stop being mysterious and answer the question... please.
