Re: Raspberry Pi Pad

<t>Hi jewesque, the screen I'm using just happens to be TMDS, the same protocol that HDMI and DVI uses, once I've reconfigured the pins and soldered the new HDMI connector I'll be ready to test it, but secretly I'm waiting for my RasPi before I do too much.<br/> <br/> I'd had the same though about L...

Re: Power Supply / Charging Circuit

<t>I'm in the process of putting together the design of a suitable power supply for the RasPi.<br/> <br/> For the RasPi we'd need 5Vdc and for other elements of my designs I'd need 12V and 9V.<br/> <br/> I can get the various voltages pretty easily with LDO voltage regulators like the LM78xxx, but w...

Re: The C Book - Its FREE!

Including the book on an SD card as a "Getting Started" resource with a RasPi wouldn't be a problem, I can always ask the author to confirm if his permission was required.

Re: Conferences and other public appearances

Just wondering if any of the team would be interested in giving a talk to our local Linux Users Group about Raspberry Pi, Linux and Open Source? and what costs/expectations would be if it were possible.

Re: Raspberry Pi Pad

And no, the screen isn't LVDS, so no conversion required from HDMI.

Re: Print and/or File Server

<t>Currently fulfilling this role is my web/dev server massively overpowered, massively massive.<br/> <br/> Wouldn't it be nice to run my Printer from a RasPi instead, 1W at full load? Sounds a little cheaper to run than 800W at full load.<br/> <br/> On the file server front I fear that the throughp...

Re: Raspberry Pi Pad

<t>I've been thinking for a while about a project for an old all-in-one pc and decided that I'd like to re-purpose it as a portable Raspberry Pi Pad.<br/> <br/> I've stripped the screen from it and intend to attach a touch screen overlay running form one of the USB ports.<br/> <br/> I can re-wire th...
