Re: Maximum image number with raspistill?

hey stubright of course, you're right. The actual code leads to /mnt/flash/. Why should /mnt/flash be empty before mounting the flash device? this didnt cause problems so far as there were allways 10-15 pictures in that folder. I'm allready following 8.3 format since the filename is a 6 digit numbe...

Re: Are you getting excited yet ? (BirthdayWeekend)

It is so nice of everyone to be getting all excited for my birthday (Saturday), but there's no need to. It's a little unnerving that you are making all this fuss. Unfortunately, I can't make it, so I hope you all enjoy my birthday weekend without me. My wife has got me my second Pi2, amongst other t...

Re: 1MBPS transfer speed via NAS using SAMBA

I've just tried scp to copy from my PC to my Pi.

I should have been a little clearer, the plug in power meter is not accurate enough at that power level for a 'measurable difference'.

Re: Measuring Power Consumption

The problem with that type of power meter is you're actually measuring the power consumption of the wall wart rather than the Pi itself. The accuracy at that wattage will probably be poor. The meter states +/- 1% +1w (minimum 1.5w) and it consumes 1.8w on it's own, I'm not sure if that is included i...
