Re: Web radio distro?

Thanks for the suggestion. I was hoping for a simple solution that can use mostly off-shelf parts. Something anyone could take an SD card format it, open a file in notepad and set it up for what you need, then reboot an test it with a keyboard. The setup of the Aurdino as a keyboard with be a later ...

Web radio distro?

I saw the article about Radio Lollipop. It got me to thinking, Is there a small Linux distro for the Raspberry Pi that boots into a program/script that will auto play a stream? Here are my thoughts on how this would work: When the SD card is installed with the distribution a text or XML file is plac...

Web Kiosk for Games

Hey all, I've been creating some light weight HTML games. I was planning on using Instant WebKiosk but they shut down the Raspberry Pi project. Are there any alternatives? I wanted the RPI to boot directly into kiosk. FYI: the games are a Pac Man clone for my mother. Her eyesight is going and its ge...

Re: # of Units Shipped?

Please forgive but 'serial production'?  Are they pouring milk on the units and hope they will sprout more? Does that mean each supply house is now producing there own version of the RPI or are the going through a common firm?

Re: Boot from USB

I will preface this by saying: I know you can't boot directly from USB.  How ever has anyone made an ISO for the SD card to bring up a boot menu/boot loader and let you boot off a USB device?

Re: Allied electronic not selling the reference design Raspberry Pi???

Personally I think a spin-off board would be a great thing.  Especially if it had some of the most requested features.  If the spin-off board got popular then those features could be integrated back into the main line.

Re: To buy or not to buy

I\'ll probably end up get a rev board but not because I want too. I really wanted one to make a Christmas light display but by the time it gets here it will be to late. So I might as well wait a little bit and get a slightly better board with updated drivers.

I've was thinking about taking a POS keyboard and disassemble it. Then put something like weather stripping between the two halves as a spacer. With added space Dremel out the ports and put external connection. Then use new elongated screws to bring the unit back together.
