Re: Is it possible to have static IP address?

Depends on what you mean by static IP?

If on your own LAN then yes it's certainly possible.

If on the internet facing side then that would depend on your ISP. Some service providers offer this but it may come at an additional cost.

I'm not the only one who's had the misfortune to short the 5V and 3V3 pins on the Pi's 40-pin header.
The problem lies with the MXL7704
I beg to differ, the problem is as you stated in the earlier part of your post (above).

Re: Help: Raspberry change the polarity

Another possibility is you have plugged the meter leads in the wrong way round on the meter. As you pi would not work if you had 5V on a ground pin and ground on the 5V pin. That's what I meant pcmanbob, if the OP connects the VM correctly (both polarity and Pins) then what he describes is impossib...

Are you sure you're connecting your voltmeter correctly?

Regarding lightning bolt, it's not always a power supply issue. You say you have a Pi 3 but you don't specify which model. Excluding the compute modules there are currently 3 (B, B+ A+) older kernels (of which yours appear to be) may show the low voltage icon when not necessary. Start with Rasbian (...

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.

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.

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.
