Re: Pi4 GPIO header disaster

To get one in that condition would be very unlucky, to get 2 ???

IMHO, Something was tampered with between leaving the manufacturer and reaching the customer.

No.
And will it ever be? :roll:

Re: Raspberry pi question

That would be a question to ask ADA Fruit. It certainly does not qualify as a "Raspberry pi question".

Ada fruits website has a couple of links if you're interested in looking there.

TBH, I wasn't satisfied with any of the points, perhaps you should go back to a windows system (and even then many users would know how to do/google what you describe).

The point of your post is (considering we're using buster now)?

Thanks, it is concerning but for me not an issue.

For others who are worried stick with the official power supply.

There is the resistor issue that makes the Pi4 not work with many USB-PD chargers apparently.

FWIW a charger IS NOT a power supply unit.

That's slow for the PiHut - its normally the next day!
To be fair it was highlighted on the ordering page that delivery may be delayed due to excessive demand.

I normally receive delivery next day but in this case was prepared to wait a week or so, I extra day meh.

Perhaps you would but I'm sure others who (like myself) bought the Official 7" touch screen would probably disagree.

By all means buy a Pi if you have an interest in computing/programming/electronics, but may I ask? What's wrong with your current setup?

If it ain't broke don't fix it.

Nothing to do with sudo in this case though certainly not advised unless required.
