Maybe just send the moderators a polite email asking them to delete your account would get you what you wish.

Re: Why would this circuit fry my board?

There is no need for a 10K pull down resistor if the pull-down is being set in software. That makes sense. Not used to things that can bet configured in software like that. Still wondering why the GPIO to ground method isn't used. Would that not protect the GPIO pins better from both a hard- and so...

Re: Webaudio on Firefox-esr broken

AFAIAA Arch Linux Arm includes Firefox Browser so that may be an alternative ! I'm planning on trying other distro's on Pi soon, but for a running project, I'd rather stick to the main supported OS. That, and I'm very much at home in Debian'esque environments. Point is that alternative distro's wil...

A. Unfortunately, I am not able to update, as the system will always lock-up during the update.
That is not a good thing at all. the SD card is the weak point. Indeed try another one.

chromium-browser included in Raspbian is tweaked by RPF / RPT to "function" on all models. I can confirm the same issue exists on the model 3, 3B+ with both Buster and Stretch. I believe this to be some kind of configuration issue somewhere between firefox and.. pulseaudio? perhaps? Therefore "some...

Re: Why would this circuit fry my board?

I think the minimum resistance needed in this diagram is 220Ohms using the 3.3v output. In this diagram I would also have added a 10KOhm pull-down resistor to ground. You could also try to connect the GPIO to the button and switch to ground and measure the state of the GPIO that way. I think there i...

Re: how does the pi keep track of time without a real tine clock

It doesn't. Probably reverts back to a default timestamp or the last logged on or something.

If your boards must remain offline and you need accurate time, then installing an RTC if your only real quick fix.

From your original post and the link you provided, I assume you still want a proxy server and not just a local web server. I only have experience with Squid and that is from some years ago. You actually do not need to use 2 interfaces. 1 is enough. the 2 interface setup is used to separate the local...

Re: Nintendo Switch Charger With RPi4

What you want in a power-supply is fairly straight forward. First of all, you want a good quality one. Not a grade-b Chinesium dollar store job, but a proper one. The connector should, of course, match the power input of your PI. For the RPi4 this would be a type USB-C. Secondly you want the correct...

Re: Raspberry Pi 4 with dual touchscreen running dual chromium

It is certainly possible to use two touchscreens and map them correctly, but I do not know how that effects the functionality. For instance, I do not know if you could do a drag or pinch gesture simultaneously. Part of it depends on the driver or how it is supported in xinput. While most likely poss...
