Re: China cyberattacks on my Pi

Yes, it is good for learning, but it does rather depend on what information you have stored on your Pi, and if it has access to other computers on your local network. Log on remotely as Pi, start browser, look at bookmarks, go to ebay login page and find password is stored locally, same for paypal....

Re: Maximum overclock varies per individual Pi

First, you should look at the word "overclock" - as the first two syllables suggest, overclocking means exceeding the rated speed of a device, which is 700 MHz, and no more, for the Pi. Any additional performance you may obtain is a statistical anomaly and this is true of any mass-manufactured devi...

Re: China cyberattacks on my Pi

Reading this thread, only one thing comes to mind: Such attacks are probably an interesting starting point for teaching about computer security, and since it's easy to re-image an SD Card, there shouldn't be any major worries about the consequences of a break-in, as far as I can tell.

Re: Maximum overclock varies per individual Pi

It's well worth noting that this isn't something that's Raspberry Pi-specific - it's the case with all CPUs. There are just natural variations in manufacture, as with anything else. :P

EDIT: And malakai already explained that much better than I did. I missed that - sorry!

Unfortunately, this isn't possible. Adobe dropped support for Flash on ARM a few years ago, now, and they never supported ARMv6 (the generation used by the Raspberry Pi) at all.
