One Linux nerd to the girl he fancies:
"Will you be my valentine?"
She: "No way!"
He: "Sudo will you be my valentine?"
She: "Yes, of course."

I've got a RPi3 running plain (no-NOOBS) Raspbian Jessie attached to my RPF touch screen. I'm planning to bring that one down tomorrow.

I have a RPi3 with Ubuntu 15.10.3 installed. I shall bring that along tomorrow. I do not have a portable display, other than the touch screen that is attached to a RPi2. (I don't fancy changing the display ribbon cable more often than the minimum.) It would be nice to get hold of a portable HD display with HDMI.

Unless we can relocate from the Roebuck in Winchester to the Bell in Codicote, then sorry but I won't be there this month.

Can you tell Andrew to just hold on to my USB stick for another month.

Those who like to keep up-to-date with rpi-update might wish to know that the firmware update published on 30 April caused the sound on Ubuntu MATE 16.04 to be muted. I reverted back to the version published on 27 April and the sound worked again.

I filed a bug report (https://github.com/Hexxeh/rpi-firmware/ ... -217492486) which, after some dialogue, resulted in an upgrade to the firmware and a kernel bump to 4.4.9 (see https://github.com/Hexxeh/rpi-firmware/commits/master) on 6 May (today). This seems to work on my Raspberry Pi 2 & 3 running Ubuntu MATE 16.04. If others in the group might like to update their kernels and firmware, this would help to confirm that the bug is fixed.

I am trying to run a Software Defined Radio app. http://gqrx.dk/ under Ubuntu MATE using a FUNCube dongle http://www.funcubedongle.com/?page_id=1073. The app. tends to consume most of the RPi 3's CPU resources which causes its temperature to rise. I have fitted a self-adhesive heat sink (from the Pi Hut) but it needs a stream of cooling air to keep the temperature from rising. If my 5v cooling fan arrives in time, I hope to bring the Pi along on Wednesday.

That's what I'm planning. I've got a demo (two RPis, one network switch, one laptop) lined up.

Everyone is welcome to the Roebuck on Wed 14th.

I'll have a Raspberry with me with some new hardware to demonstrate.

Is this meeting open to everyone, or is it non-inclusive, "a hippy & doctor free zone" ?

Anyone, regardless.
I have you on mute because your postings rarely interest me.

And that's fair enough. But you have done more than that; by explicitly stating it in your signature you have advertised that in all 35,000+ of your posts. There is no need to do that.

I politely request you please remove that from your signature.

The Southampton, Winchester, Andover and Basingstoke Pi Interest Group is still going.

Last night we had a very pleasant evening sticking a metre and a half apart in Andrew's back garden in Andover. We're still trying to work out what we're doing/where we're going for September.

Hopefully we can get back to the more regular 2nd Wed in the pub some time in the near future. Watch this space.
