Who is most important?

Who is most important?

Amazon or it's customers?

eBay or it's customers?

Royal mail or it's customers?

This would be a great company to work for if it was not for them dam customers, wanting things!

The workers are safe

I saw this article about a Robot that walks around but stumbles in the real world, it can move boxes too. I think the workers are safe but if it can move and sort boxes then it can shuffle papers on a desk, so middle management better worry :D http://recode.net/2016/02/23/watch-googles-latest-robot-...

Got one of those a couple of weeks back and found that it happily runs a USB3 1Gbps Ethernet adapter, and with an "A" to "A" cable will power the Pi as well - not bad for a quid.
Yes it is great value a Quid :)

Re: Epiphany web browser will not start ?

Not sure if you have fixed the problem, if not have you tried.

Sudo apt-get autoclean

Then uninstall Epiphany

Sudo apt-get autoremove

just to clean any lose ends

Then re-install Epiphinay

Might or might not help :)

i too have experienced the no boot after update I thought I had a card problem till reading this. Pi Z model.

Trying another update so it might fail again. I noticed the edit config for old driver boot. I had been doing a hold shift key recovery but that just re-installs old system again.

Re: Overclocking the pizero

Interestingly when I first starred up my Pi Zero in Raspbian 1.5.0 (there is a newer version available now 1.6.0 ) and I started looking around menus I found by default the Pi Zero was set to 700mhz so I manual changed it to the 1000mhz option. Seems fine so far.
