Twister

Browsing Slashdot the other day I saw a project called " twister " that aims to be a decentralised microblogging platform. I duly downloaded the source, installed the html and with a little compiling I was registered and able to use it on my Arch Linux system. Has anyone compiled this for or on thei...

Re: Altoids tin

Yes, I have. I searched the forum before I posted the question and saw that one. That approach is not for me. I want the RasPi in the tin; not covered by a bit of ripped and torn scrap metal, if you know what I mean? All credit to the guy who made that case, and for making the Instructible. Everyone...

Altoids tin

Yes, I know it's unpossible. Here is the response from the FAQ, just so you know I read it: Will it fit in an Altoids tin? Doesn’t quite work, I’m afraid – because we don’t round off the edges of the board, it’s a little too big to fit the tin. But ... "We don't round off the edges" is interesting. ...

Re: York; Another Raspberry Jam

I have a feeling tomorrow night might be a quiet one also.

But the venue will be open, I will be there and so might a couple of faces from the last one.

Everyone is welcome to come and say hello.

Re: Raspberry Jam in York

Yes, this is still on. I had a call from the owner of the club this morning to verify this. Doors open at 8pm he tells me. I haven't had much in the way of responses to my Farcebook event, nor to this post. Please do come along, if nothing else we might be able to organise another meet and work out ...

Revisited: Would anyone be interested in a York, UK meet?

OK, now that some time has passed, let's revisit this topic. As the original poster I feel a bit of grave digging might be permisible.

If you want to get together and geek out over our RasPis feel free to post.
I assume that most people who wanted to get one have one by now.

I have not. Do you have the links for any York LUGs? I'd be more than happy to do it.

Would anyone be interested in a York, UK meet?

From the stats on Ryan's tracking page there seem to be a few RasPi owners in York. Would anyone be interested in meeting up and discussing geeky crap without their SO/kids/mates yawning? Personally I like the idea of an informal setting with refreshments sold in measures of 0.5 or 1.0 pints, but if...

A useful case for my RasPi

I've temporarily homed my RasPi inside a WRT54G running DD-WRT that's been set up as a repeater bridge . Underclocking the CPU and making sure the RasPi doesn't cover it will help to keep the temperature down. Also, I run as little power through the radio as I can, 1mW is enough to reach the router ...

Thanks for the update.

Hopefully this will keep some of the less patient pre-owners from griefing for a few days.
