Re: One of *those* days...

I've fallen in love with my Galaxy Note's AMOLED screen. Blacks are black, not the weird glowing black of LCDs. And I much prefer to read white on black, or even green on black, than traditional black on white. Colors are very loud, but unless your a photo geek, that actually rather nice. The Samsun...

Re: GOLD PLATED PI-STACK case

No need to get your back up. To each his own, and this is a nice case, but a very expensive one on the Pi's scale. Everybody is right, and everybody has a right to say there piece without being sniped at.

Re: Bill Gates backs Raspberry Pi in all but name?

I was wrong about christianity, I was thinking of impact more than "rightness". Make that religion/ethics/philosophy.

Re: how about a Media convertor

The Pi is not really the best device do to that. - there's a lot of other ways to do that with x86 PCs - the Pi has no Video input, nor Sound input of good quality - the GPU can't help with the video encode (software/IP issues), and the CPU is very weak for it You're better of looking for an expansi...

No. This cable assumes that the HDMI (digital) side also supplies VGA (analog) signals, which the Pi (and most other HDMI outputs) doesn't.

Re: Streaming media over LAN from RasPi?

Typically, you don't set up a web server to stream media over a LAN, you set up a DLNA server (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dlna, they're having fun creating words, but basically it's like a network, with (a) server(s) and (a) client(s), with an added optional "remote" that act like, well, a remote)...

I'm not sure Netbooks have been a fiasco. They did sell lots, and still do. I got one and gifted 2 or 3, in all cases a full laptop's price and heft wasn't justified, but a $250 throwaway could pass. Great machines to carry around if you're not sure you won't need Office, and a few hours of movies/c...
