No one said that. The RPi is a very good little Single Board Computer (SBC), and I use 6 of them as my primary computers.NorthernPike wrote:Duff hardware. What is that??? I'm American, we don't use words like duff to describe crappy hardware. We simply say it's shit and advice everyone NOT to waste their money. So, your telling me I purchased garbage.
Do not forget to mention how you did not want to hear the solutions to your trouble though would rather rant and rave like a druggie comming down off of Meth.Well, fool me once, shame on me, fool me twice, shame on you. I won't bother returning it. I will simply cut my losses and throw it into the trash.
Then, create a YouTube video about my experience with Raspberry Pi, make entries into Yelp about my opinion of the product and advice the schools in my area to stay clear of your product.
Yes because $1.50 down at your local WalMart for a 2GB class 4 SD Card is just to much to find out if the issue is user error. And you do not have the 8GB SD That you claimed came with it.Common man, keyboards have been used for years. This is just lame.
So you want me to spend more money to get a new SD card and flash it with Pidora, seriously? Not going to happen.
So in sum you are saying that you do not want the solution you would rather rant and rave like a lunitic high on Meth, does that about sum it?I want answers that will fix what I have. And I want them now.
From the other side of the pond, it looks like you didn't do everything right !NorthernPike wrote:... I did everything right. So what's up???
For the fith time (at leaste) TRY PLUGGING THE KEYBOARD AND MOUS IN THROUGH A POWERED USB HUB. It is well documented that the Raspberry Pi does not provide much power out to the USB, and this can cause problems with some power hungry keyboards and mice. Especialy if you have already triple checked the power suply that you are using.NorthernPike wrote:to davids
Hey, if you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen. I did my research, I have an 8GB SD, I have everything right. Your board has a problem and you seem to refuse to ignore it. And besides, what solutions should I try since I haven't been given any. What's the matter boy, don't like it when people let you know how they feel about being ripped off. Grow up and fix your hardware. For God's sake, can't even read a simple keyboard.
So if asking you to calm down is a assignine asumption, then I guess that is that. I just suggested that you calm down and read what had been said. I made the comparison to the behaviour of a meth addict, not as an accusation (that is an ASSIMPTION on your part) though rather to point out your kicking and screaming behaviour, attempting to get you to calm down and read the suggestions that had been made. I made zero assumptions, only an attempt to get you to calm down.NorthernPike wrote:to paulie
Thanks for the link. But I already had it and saw my Microsoft keyboards listed as being ok. I am not using the raspi to learn, I am using it for a really cool project. But I didn't expect to spend time with a keyboard issue. As for politeness, how is being called a Meth addict polite? If I had known I would be dealing with children, I never would have considered the raspi for this project. So, you can tell davids to go to hell. He makes all kinds of asinine assumptions just like a child would do. Then he makes all kinds of excuses just like a child would do. I'm a professional who doesn't have time to battle wits with kids. I need to know if I made the right choice for this project I'm working on and right now the answer seems to be no. Which is a pity cause if it did work, there could potentially be thousands of my end product from this project made for consumers. I didn't want BeagleBone because of the price. I didn't want Arduino because it has no HDMI. So guess what, the raspi fit perfect. Well, almost. Oh well, my mistake. So I guess I will have to wait until February of 2014 for the Arduino TRE. It will have HDMI. My main requirement. But, I will get my hands on a Logitec keyboard and see what happens. I'm not giving up yet, but I do need to start developing and coding soon.
Because they still need help.pjc123 wrote:Why do you people even respond to someone this arrogant.
