Re: Database error on website

I'm getting database errors while accessing this website.

I guess its because of the demand on the webserver.

Just thought you guys should know.

This is a very basic Wordpress forum. I doubt it has many plugins like that.

Re: What programming language

I can use many different languages.

The most obvious would be python though.

Re: No OS news?

From an educational point of view we absolutely want to see a "default" operating system.

I'm currently designing some lesson plans on learning Linux on the RPI and will need to know that others are using the same Distro.

Re: XBMC running on Raspberry Pi

<t>Yeh they've been working on it, a lot of the arm work had already been done <br/> <br/> XBMC is pretty efficient with its cpu usage normally but there is room for improvement. It does depend a lot on the theme though. There used to be simplified versions of Aeon for the xbox due to its speed so i...

Re: RasPi as a basic school desktop replacement

It costs you £400? per pc? Wow.

We build our own here for about £250 and most of that is the ssd drive.

I don't see raspberry pis replacing normal day to day pcs but I do see some use for them in our boarding houses or as a bookable resource.
