Re: streural issues

You are SO correct, I TOTALLY forgot to use that fine social lubricant, the word PLEASE , and for this carelessness I apologize. Reviewing my prior posts, there are points that ought to have been written with more planning and thought, that the annoyance came out as potentially helpful feedback, whi...

contagion

The Raspberry Pi is not yet contagious. To make a Pi, I have to download the opsys image in a windows box, burn the image into a SD card, then place the card into a minty fresh new pi. Pi cannot as of yet make another pi. THIS is the sense of contagion; to reproduce itself. For this to become a true...

Re: Powering the Raspberry Pi

OK, now SOME wallwarts for phones have the current capacity, and all of them with usb cords CLAIM to be 5 volts, and most of them are close enough to work. But maybe you want to get yourself a rude and crude mahunga power supply. and do experiments, secure in the knowledge you have reserves availabl...

Re: Raspberry Pi Mini

you need 1 usb port to nurse a hub. micro chip rocks. hdmi??? Why? They are a new technology, and tying up the telly is not a good move, OLD used SVGA monoitors surplus from business' as they replace with new ones are a glut on the market. OK, RBF said no, so it's n o, but hindsight is 20/20, right?...

Jessee, as for the sandwich and a lady both raw, which one is the one to deliver hot?

Re: streural issues

OK, so you think I'm a jerk. Nice welcome you go there; have you considered a career in sales? Remind me not to invite you to my Bar Mitzvah. :idea: OK, so sell an in line switch as an option. If I have the cash I can add it to the shopping cart. As is, unplugging to shut down to swap sd cards to re...

Re: I can't download Raspbian! Help!

it works. This box has/had sendori on it, and their dns was interfering with downloading from sites known to warehouse software. it is gone now, and I recommend anyone interested in not being a corporate peasant consumer unit NOT use sendori.

Re: I can't download Raspbian! Help!

The mirrors are not working for me, nor is torrent. Can this be a DNS problem?

Re: Raspberry Pi 101 (read before posting)

PI needs some things, but not a lot more. As a contrast, My Acer AspireOne is 800 Mhz, 1 core, is now dual booted, and runs FINE with lucid puppy 5.28.005; the current software for the pi needs polishing is all. However, handling it a lot will lead to corrosion and mechanical failure of sockets. The...

streural issues

WANT LIST: ON/OFF SWITCH. reset BUTTON. Light a fire on the puppy team; I have lucid puppy in an 800 mhz atom powered Acer AspireOne and it is faster than the Raspberry puppy, and that's remarkable as this has just as fast a clock, and ELECTRONIC disk access speeds, not mechanical as does the Acer. ...

Re: Cheap "Pi Stand"

Nice Job! Now what keeps the dust off it? I bought the Bud Box Amazon suggested- raspberry color of course- and it fits like socks on a rooster. 1. Make the thing grip the board more securely Bud Inc!!! 2. In the sequel, give it a socket and a switch. The person who thought a on/off switch was a gra...

Re: Turn on PC with Pi with a twist

ok, get an X-acto knife,a soldering iron, a bit of radio solder, 2 short wires, single strand, tinned. LOOK at the socket where the power ?USB line plugs in. While unplugged, determine which is the +5V wire- the other is 0 volts ground and will hopefully be grounded somehow,although considering wall...
