Re: What Developping Environment?

If you're willing to learn Pascal (easy to learn) and want a RAD (Rapid Application Development) I can't fault Lazarus (the IDE) with Free Pascal. The version in the repository is a little outdated but if you're interested post back and I'll give instructions for installing a more up to date version...

A yeast extract. You either love it or hate it :).

Re: LCD and Raspberry pi zero w

More info required (links preferred).

4Ah, won't run your Pi for long, how long a battery life would you like?

Make/Model of your LCD?
Make/Model of your powerboost?

What else will be connected to your Zero?

Re: Cluster Pi via gpio pins

Damn you mahjongg ;)

I was only planning to create a ZX Spectrum based on an article in HackSpace June 2018 #07.

Now I've got to buy a few Pi's to emulate Agnus, Paula & Denise.

See these PI's, they're not like marmite. You don't love them or hate them, You love them and hate them.

Another point to note, never ever connect anything to the GPIO's when the Pi is connected to a power supply.

Re: Keyboard

I can confirm it works with Rasbian stretch and Pi 3B+, at least alpha numeric, you may need to do some key remapping for punctuation, special function keys etc(US layout not UK) but touch pad and A-Z 0-9 work fine.

Can you tell how I could extend 1Gb internal memory
You can't. The SOC on the Pi is limited to 1Gb.
using BSD 128Gb SD?
You could use swap space but that would be a question for the various BSD forums.

However, the Pi Zero and Zero W have the same, single-core processor as the original Pi 1 that came out in 2012, and they sport just 512GB of RAM.

Re: RGB Backlit Keyboard

Recently read that if your Pi draws more than 2A6 then the polyfuse would blow anyway, if it does switch off for a while (~24 hours) disconnect the keyboard and reconnect via a powered USB hub, no harm done.
