Re: Pi 3 A +. What is it for?

I like your logic,Heater, . All I was thinking was when I am just starting out learning Mu, or Python or whatever on the Pi offline, it would be handy to have Chromium open in the "Help" menu but then it crashes, freezes. It means , I will have to have a laptop open which defeats the purpose of havi...

Re: Pi 3 A +. What is it for?

Thanks so much. Obviously all of you feel passionately about the Pi+ A3 and have defended it well. I must study your replies in detail once I get the chance and no doubt will have more questions for you. At leas,t is good to hear it functions in ways I still have yet to discover. I did enjoy reading...

:D It it beggars belief that someone thinks a full up Linux running computer with 512MB of RAM is unusable for lack of memory. 512MB is eight thousand times more than a high end personal computer in 1980. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intertec_Superbrain With machines like that we had word processor...

So, Is it really for hardware extensions? Sorry, I don't mean to act stupid it is just I am new to this and have f...

Pi 3 A +. What is it for?

Hi, having discovered that the above model is so memory -constrained, Chromium doesn't work. This makes Scratch,Python impossible to use. I know there is some software offline, Mu, Thonny, Scratch 2 but if you want helpfor these on a browser the whole thing crashes. Plus,presumably Trinket is online...

Re: Scratch 3 Desktop Version for Raspberry Pi

Can Scratux be used as a desktop offline version on Rasp. Pi 3 A+. Am I right that I source it through Github? Chromium is useless on A+ so I am looking for an offline version of Scratch. Thanks

Re: Raspberry pi 3 A+. Operating System difficulties

Mmm.. I presumed Noobs contains Rasbian. I had 2 tabs open in Chromium and was using the Scratch programming website. I am sure I just installed the Noobs/Rasbian system and no other. I only have the Pi 3 B on loan so I really hope to get my own A+ up and running smoothly. I would think the 16 Gb ha...

Re: Desktop and cursor frozen after set-up. Pi 3

Thank you for your reply. I feel like an idiot. My red wire was not attached to the Pi ,only from the monitor to the keyboard. I presumed when I got the desktop image that everything was linked up correctly and that it was some shutdown failure that corrupted my files after download. I am glad,all i...

I installed Noobs onto a blank 16 Gb SD card and formatted it. I inserted it into a new Raspberry pi 3 ,A+. All went well, the software downloaded successfully. I,then, answered some location questions and keyed in my network Wifi code. All is well. However, a message popped up saying a large downlo...
