Re: Where could tutorials go?

I recommend getting a Dropbox account and putting in your Public folder. This is the best way, and short of running your own server, the easiest to update as well.

An article liz hasn't caught yet. I feel proud for finding it. Anyway, Raspberry Pi people, congrats on all the press.

your warranty


{this post has serious intent} Forgive me for interrupting, but I was unaware (for whatever reasons) that the Pi came with a warranty. Is this only mentioned as part of your joke (which is fine), or is there actually such a thing?

Re: Do these look good and worth buying?

I am aware. I should specify that I have the RCA audio (M-M) that goes with it, I just need with it. In addition, I have extra power supplies for USB hubs so I can power cheap ones that don't draw enough power from the wall socket.

Yes. Although I would shy away from something so cheap if you can, but that's me being a skeptic so you're probably fine.

Re: Couple of questions

<t>These questions have already been answered in FAQ. I'll answer them again though.<br/> <br/> 1.

Re: 7-10 inch touchable screen - what is best for r-pi?

You'll need an external, powered via alternate source than the RPi itself, USB hub, but this is one of the best you can buy.

Re: Just making sure...

Does the Composite output work with NTSC for United States -spec televisions? I know this company is UK based thus uses PAL (or SECAM maybe). This would be a huge letdown if it didn't.
