Is there any estimation when it will be available in "bulk" quantities of 10..50 pieces for ~$10 ?
Bulk quantities we can already do: https://elmwoodelectronics.ca/products/ ... -pi-zero-w
For ~$10 though? I can't say.

But for all that, running things every minute via cron is wrong for about a dozen reasons.
Your example doesn't run the script every minute: it runs the script, then waits a minute. If rsump.py takes any amount of time to run, then it'll run far less frequently than once a minute.

Re: Purchase for School (US)

Maybe drop a note to Chicago Electronic Distributors, the US-based sister company of the company I work for. I'm sure they can work something out for you.

Re: Raspbian Stretch: Wifi not starting on boot

... and should /etc/network/interfaces.d be empty?

Either way, wifi didn't work until I put back all the lines that had previously been in the /etc/network/interfaces file.

Re: The Internet - IT Crowd case

Oops, sorry about the delay in replying. The USB cable has 4-40 screws on 18 mm centres (though I'd measure that rather than taking it as truth). A ⅛" drill (~ 3.2 mm) cuts a close clearance hole, and the slot could be cut with a Dremel or a few close drill holes widened out with a file. ABS cases t...

Re: Install DS3231 Real Time Clock - Latest Info

With my commercial hat on, we sell Afterthought's RasClock . Doesn't use a DS3231, but uses a similar temperature-compensated RTC from NXP. Uses a replaceable CR1220 cell, and sits on a tiny 6-pin header for the Raspberry Pi. In Canada, $17.49 from Elmwood Electronics . In the US, $11.99 from Chicag...

Re: The Internet - IT Crowd case

To bring connectors to one side, you'll need panel mount adaptors, such as: Panel mount HDMI Cable - 40 cm Panel Mount Extension USB Cable - Micro B Male to Micro B Female If the LED is small enough, you can drive it directly from the Raspberry Pi's +5 V pin. Alternatively, drive it from a GPIO pin ...

Re: Sourcing Astro Pi parts from USA-based websites/stores

Hi olav216 — though I work for a Canadian reseller, our US sister company Chicago Electronic Distributors now ships from Florida.

I'd be happy to work on a bill of materials for an Astro Pi kit. The ISS might prove a skosh difficult to fit in the 3D printer, though.
