Re: Bought two photo frames, will either work for monitor?

Typically digital photo frames , out of the box, display images or videos from memory or SD cards. This is all these products do. They cannot, without modification accept a hdmi or composite video streams which the Pi produces for its main screen. The USB port is not normally a full function port bu...

For moving stuff amongst my close knit home net and beyond I tend to use scp. The OpenSSH suite has been very usefull to me. I've been successful in setting up four of my email accounts in mutt.

You need to look at Firewall Builder. http://www.fwbuilder.org/index.html

Re: Best new computer?

My advice has always been to 1) write down a list of what the computer will be used for 2) find the software that will do those jobs (including gaming) 3) then start looking at the hardware From reading the top post, while gaming is clearly important you haven't given enough thought to the other thi...

Re: Phantasia or other MUD

I'm running Raspbian and the pennmush package loads and runs right out of the box. There's even a tinyFugue client, although it's not necessary since telnet works just fine. So I would think that if it isn't available from the Mint repos you could probably pull the source down and compile it.

So when somebody puts forth a request for suggestions for their new 30 minute video on a subject I'm interested in I tend to request a posted transcript. I don't ask for a transcript exclusively. And most definitely in the ca...

Re: Python or perl? (co-workers know perl)

A couple of thoughts. (Oh, grohd I'm stepping into a language war. :o ) Does your organization have a preference? Even different departments within organizations often have differing tastes in languages. Since Perl is slightly :D older than python there is a slew of modules that do just about anythi...
