Apache needs a network. If you have a network, most distributions will get time by NTP.technics6 wrote:I can show that data on website served by fully functional Apache.
Flash has limited write cycles. Would you really pay $5 more for a board with integrated flash, that may eventually fail, instead of $5 more to add an SD card that you can swap and replace at any time?It would be really nice, if board could have some flash chip that can utilize DMA etc.
If you are close enough to operate a physical switch or jumper, you are close enough to reboot.I know, that there is some way to turn it off by software, but there may be a problem with this. How to turn it on again, when I have no USB and network?
I disagree, actually. OP's requests are unusually daft, and not the kind of enhancement requests that occur most frequently.Oakham wrote:Everything you mooted has been flogged to death, deader than a dead horse

NOT AGAIN. If you do not like the Pi there are plenty of alternatives, maybe design and manufacture your own if you have a few £££££££'s laying around, have you seen this thread ?

Guys, I'm not Raspberry enemy. I really like this product. It's awesome. I don't want anything else.Dutch_Master wrote:The key and re-occurring theme in threads like this, is that the OP's time and time again fail to grasp why the RPi was designed, for what audience it was intended and that their specific needs were and remain not part of the deliberations!
Nobody is forcing you to buy and/or use an RPi. You're free to flog it, throw it away or hand it down to a nearby school, but it's purpose remains as an educational tool to entice youngsters to get an interest in programming and ICT in general. Anything else is up to you...
Fair point.technics6 wrote:I just want to share my opinion.
Perhaps, sometimes.* But it's highly unlikely the RPi will see anything from your or anyone else's wish/demand-list implemented, at all. It was designed for a purpose and fulfils that purpose admirably, so why change? It's only 18 months since it came to market, even mobile phones have a longer design-life then thattechnics6 wrote:Sometimes consumer opinions like this make products better.
/shrug To power the 2GB memory and on-board flash, 1GbE, the power has to come from somewhere. Though if you're not going to use the SATA connector, you can cut the power requirement by 1 A, so only twice what a Pi requires.technics6 wrote: @W. H. Heydt
Maybe I'm wrong, but CurbieTruck seems to need 3x more power than Raspberry.
Some don't like suggestions for 'improving' the RPI on here, l don't see any problem with it, it's upto the foundation if they want to take any noticetechnics6 wrote::

No reason why you couldn't suggest a manual version, the advantage of the www and forums?Oakham wrote:THE PI WAS DESIGNED AND IS AIMED AT BEING AN EDUCATIONAL TOOL
One would not buy a traditional Automatic 4speed Rolls car if one wanted to learn how to change gears, and then write to the CEO of Rolls and suggest his 6.75ltr car should have a manual box in future !
Suggestions YES and stick them in OFF TOPIC
not a problem - either use a internet connection so ntp can do it's stuff or add one yourselftechnics6 wrote:Hi guys,
1. Lack of RTC (Real Time Clock).
not a problem - 512MB RAM is enough for nearly everything YMMV
2. Lack of internal memory.
use a model A
3. Power consumption
