Re: Proto Armour for Raspberry Pi and GertDuino

Looks good. Should be a standard feature on all of them. Do you know of a rubber plug that will fit across the gap to seal it when I don't need the pins? Will the Proto Armour accept a Raspberry Pi with a pIO (MicroSD card adapter)?

All-In-One Pi & Camera Cases?

The Make blog had a link to this today:

http://nwazet.com/camera-bundle

I'm curious now. How many of these types of cases are out there that hold both parts together? Anything high end for extreme protection? Is heat an issue with having both in such a small space?

Smart Power Base: Any Other Options?

I've wanted on for a long time now but I can't seem to pull the trigger at this price. Too high, IMHO. Does anyone have one? Has anyone built something like this for a fraction of the cost?

Count me in as well. The Pi is perfect for LE. It would also be nice to see 2.4/5 on the WiFi side.

Looking For A Good Video Training Solution For Linux?

Pi Warranty?

Curious as to the warranty on the Pi is? I finally pulled out one of the extra Pi's I ordered earlier this year and I'm positive the second one has a faulty HDMI port. (My other two Pi's work perfect with the same set up, same cables and different cables.) I just need it replaced or fixed. The analo...
