I"ve been searching for posts on brambles, and haven"t seen a lot;
Using the search on the home page for bramble brings up 118 results!
says to "Search the forums for Bramble – lots of discussion on this subject."
And it"s true that there are a lot of results, but most of them are irrelevant.
News articles and blog posts about Raspberry Pi
R-Pi Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games (MMORPG)
Cases for the Raspberry Pi
and so on.
On of the forum posts says the answer is in the wiki.
"There were no results matching the query. "
So the info might well be in there, somewhere, but a FAQ or even a wiki entry about the Bramble saying "it"s not useful except as an academic exercise" would be very handy, and save having to answer the question again. Not to mention I"ve seen the cluster named as a "Bramble" and as "Brambles", which just screws up search results. Even a url in the FAQs to a the relevant forum postings would save time.
One of the first things i saw in assorted blogs about the R. Pi was speculation about it"s usefulness as a device in a cluster, but since it's design wasn't finalised, everyone just said wait and see and there was no followup.
Thanks for the answer. If anyone has the rights to edit the faqs or the wiki, can i suggest making that sort of change to help out the next newbie?
Sorry about the messy formatting, i really don't understand this editor, I wish it would expose the tagging but it looks like you have to install a plug in to have more control over the editting; and i'm unlikely to post again.
