Re: Internet via ethernet into Windows 7 laptop

Do you mean you are literally connecting the Pi to a laptop with an ethernet cable? Yes, that works; I've done it before and I have a couple of cables set aside just for that. Windows can act as a bridge to the Internet for the Pi, and with the "other" type of ethernet cable (I never remember which...

Re: raspberry pi foundation raspbian image

Apart from a distrust of Bittorent, I get miserable download rates with Bittorent in comparison to a normal HTML download. That's entirely dependent on how much the HTML site is willing to pay for bandwidth, vs how selfish torrenters are (do they seed ?) and how miserly your ISP is (do they throttl...

Re: Impact on the desktop world

Looking around me, 90% of people could be happy with a nice nettop. Very few do anything but media consumption and social stuff. A bit of very light photo touch-ups.. and the most played games are Solitaire, Sudoku, Crosswords (or some such, Scrabble...). They do watch quite a few stupid PowerPoint ...

As a distribution, you want to use Debian, not Arch which is a bit harder to get into.

That's clever, and cheap ^^ I'll probably just secure the Pi with elastic bands.

Thanks for the idea.

Re: XBMC time using

The Pi's chip turns off the bits of itself that aren't used, so power consumption and dissipation are very low (2W).
You can put a power switch on the Pi's power cord if your really want to. Remember to shutdown properly before switching it off.

Re: USB 3.0 SATA Hard Drive Docking Station

Those speeds are extremely theoretical: 1- both interfaces have overhead, USB a lot more than SATA. So that 480 Mbps pipe really doesn't ever deliver more than around 350 of useful data. 2- USB uses a lot of CPU cycles to manage the connection and handle the data. Someone's noticed that even with ju...

Looks very nice ! Thanks for the video.

2 remarks though:

1- The Register ? Really ? :mrgreen:

2- Get ready for the next batch of "but my browser is much slower than your video" posts. Are there noob-proof instructions somewhere on how to get that speed ?
