Re: Looking for a cheap, mini (handheld) USB powered keyboard and with trackpad

It looks like you can charge the DealExtreme wireless keyboard from the USB port, why not have the charging cord permanently connected? You would lose one port though.

Re: Do I need a gertboard to run a servo

Maybe a bit extreme, knowing the audio on the Raspberry PI is based on the GPIO, but what about this?

Re: Is there any implementation of a system clock?

<t>GPS devices need to be placed near a window though.<br/> <br/> If this is a problem, you can try an older cellphone and use a serial connection to grab the phone's time. It will be as accurate as the phone's internal clock though. But it will work after a power outage due to the internal battery....

Re: Raspberry Pi #1 spotting...

liam, You can spot the bid retractions when you click on the amount of bids and scroll down.

I am somewhat bummed that all auctions end so late at night (23:00 to 0:00 CET), would have appreciated it to be at 19:00 CET (18:00 UTC, 13:00 EST, 10:00 PST).

Re: Spoofing an IR receiver to connect to an amp

<r>Using the SPI output could be a good one.<br/> <br/> A slight setback might be the fact that RC5 doesn't really send one bit but a burst of 32 cycli at 36kHz instead.<br/> <br/> You can check some sample code on the following link: <URL url="http://www.voti.nl/DB038/">http://www.voti.nl/DB038/</U...

Re: Cases for the Raspberry Pi

The third option I had is reusing an old 3.5" USB HDD box and swap out the current disk for a 2.5" one. That way I have enough space to put a Raspberry Pi next to put; plus the box can also supply a steady 5 volts.

I was hoping to fit a model-A (maybe even a model-B) into this type of case:

Even just for transpiration it looks cool. Plus, mega cheap.
