Spotimc: Spotify Add-on for XBMC

I've been fiddling with this on OpenELEC. So far I haven't got it to work but if anyone else wants to try and share their results here, go ahead.

Re: Copy content of image to sd card instead of whole image

I'm sure it's possible but awkward, why not just dd the 2GB over and then resize the partition to fill the card? That's what I did. Is there a reason you aren't doing that which I've missed?

Re: So where do I raise a support case then ?

This goes for any company. Your contract was with RS. It is their responsibility for delivery regardless of where the actual blame lies. It's up to them to chase Parcel Force, not you, and certainly not us.

Under UK law it is the same with any seller, despite what they may claim on their site.

Re: Another Raspi Lego Case :)

Almost since the beginning there has been this desire for people to build Raspberry Pi cases from Lego. It's such versatile stuff. What I haven't seen yet is a case made from Minecraft Lego . Since both were released at approximately the same time I find it somewhat surprising. Though the need to bu...

Raspberry Pi Last.fm group

As I'm always interested in music metadata I thought I'd create a Last.fm group for those of us that scrobble our music. Currently XBMC supports scrobbling to Last.fm and Libre.fm (I don't know anyone who uses libre.fm, feel free to create a group if you do though) and I've set up OpenELEC to do so....

Re: Identifying the Pi over the network

The Samsung worked well and ran OpenELEC with no problems first try, the Kingston did nothing no matter what I put on it. Your mileage really does vary. Ir...

Supposedly Microsoft are developing an ARM version of Windows 8. Supposedly a newfangled version of Windows CE. Whether it'll run on the Pi's meager specs when it arrives is a different question.

Re: The eternal question: When are things going to be normal

There is a lot of hype around now and massive amounts of people wanting a slice of the Pi (pun intended), however when the vast majority of people who craved a piece of Pi (see previous pun) have had their fill (sorry) things should "normalize".
