Re: n64 emulator port

This could help - they've compared a similar processor to the RasPi (MX35) to an Atom Z510 if that helps. http://www.ptxdist.org/develop.....29_en.html bearing in mind that the frequency of the RasPi is ~20% greater than the MX35...

<t>hmmm... You could write a simple server in {your language here} and an Android app to 'ping' the server with an open or close command...?

Re: "RASPBERRY PI (and programming in Linux) FOR DUMMIES"

I partially agree, you see hardware matters a lot less when you have a common operating system. Getting people started on Python is a primer. When you move people to C you start talking about interfacing with the hardware. Maybe a combination of the two?

Re: Pis unetbootin..?

I figured the Ubuntu ARM images were just root filesystems (i.e. been built to a clean hard disk and dd'd off to a file) So you're saying each .img is a full filesystem? Like a loopback device?

I like this!
