Good point. I was thinking just of the things I'm responsible for but of course it would make sense to test HDMI.

Re: Newest Kernel and / or Chromium broken

I made a start on a system that used pi zero in gadget mode to act as a USB stick with a test image on it. GPIO was connected to the RUN pins.

Re: How much current via USB ?

It's not a matter of safety, just a matter of when the protection kicks in (you won't fry anything if you connect 4 devices all of which draw a lot of current, they just won't work)

You can draw up to 1.2A from all ports combined. There's no per-port current limiting.

Re: Best way to run conky at startup?

I have transparency in my ~/.conkyrc file which works just fine when I open a terminal and run "conky &", just as it should. Since this is tedious to do after every reboot, I added @conky to my ~/.config/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart file, but this has a serious side effect that renders it unusable. ...

If somebody else is experiencing this issue, please try bumping gpu_mem up to 256 and report back. 128 should be enough, but let's try 256 anyway.
