Re: Packets In > 'Magic Happens' > Packets Out

Request from the internet -> Linux Linux sees that it is a web request and sends it to Apache Linux -> Apache Apache sees if request is for a static item if so sends it out. If the file is PHP then apache hands it off to PHP Apache -> PH...

Re: power issues

Try powering the PI from the hub too, in theory the hubs ports should only provide 500mA which is marginal for the PI, but in most cases the HUB's don't care exactly how much current you pull from a single port. Powering the PI from the hub can solve all kinds of insidious power problems. I'll give...

Re: Any way to hook up a processor?

Hackery the only way the pi is going to be any faster is to ummmm make it not a pi. the pi is what it is. A low spec machine to give to a kid to play around with experiment on and not worry about busting it.

Re: Confused: Element 14 Power Question?

If I remember my electronics classes correctly. Have too many Amps makes no difference to the PI since the pi will only draw what is needed. It's the voltage that can't be any higher. Infact having a supply that can provide more amps is better since the supply won't be running at max and so it's lif...
