UPS for shutdown & startup of Pi Zero?

I am looking for a UPS for the Zero that will safely power down the Pi when the input voltages falls below a safe level, but will also start the Pi back up if/when the voltages recovers. I am not too sure what those voltages will be, but perhaps something like power down <= 8v and power back on when...

Waterproof pi camera case???

Hi

I was wondering if anyone made (or could make in low volumes) a waterproof case for the Pi and its camera with possibly an option to mount a PIR sensor?

If the whole thing could be then fixed to a tree/post/wall then it could be a wildlife or security camera.

Serial Flowcontrol

Hi

Tnx

Re: Pi compatible WIfi adaptor

Got the micro net wifi dongle from maplin on the basis it was proven.

two pi users in /etc/passwd

The default distro has two "pi" users, which is probably not a good idea.

Not sure who to report that to.


Cheers
