Power questions in this forum

Thu Aug 23, 2012 12:25 am

I assumed this forum was for "Power Users" as defined as someone who is extremely technically capable as apposed to a newbie. I see a lot of questions about powering the Pi instead. Which is it? Either way it looks like there's a forum missing.

It's been suggested before that we have a section for discussing powering the Pi. It hasn't happened (yet) though. I guess there's a lot of different sections already :lol:

Power users (as in uber-geeks) are probably well placed to answer problems on powering the RPi provided they answer in a way the noob in the community will understand. ;)
Noob is not derogatory the noob is just the lower end of the noob--geek spectrum being a noob is just your first step towards being an uber-geek ;)

If you find a solution please post it in the wiki the forum dies too quick

That's exactly why I posted my power-related question here. It didn't even occur to me that power could refer to electronics..

Define noob. In terms of electronic circuits I consider myself a noob, but in terms of programming and application design definately not.

I posted a power question in here as there were others like it.

Maybe we need a separate area
