I think perhaps people are getting a bit sensitive. They need to man up a bit. I didn"t watch my buddies die face down in the mud ……..

Well you shouldn"t sell the first 10k of Raspberry Pi"s in a field on a wet day.

Yep, VNC runs great on the iPod, even better on the iPad. I hope to be running the Raspi"s via the iPad.

Re: Could the Pi monitor its own power consumption?

The use of data loggers or USB multimeters to monitor voltage/current would achieve this. I would do the initial testing via another computer so you don"t count phantom loads from your test circuitry.

Re: Case made from milk-bottle tops

<t>Please be very cautious about putting plastics in a domestic oven. It"s actually quite easy to over cook them leading to chemical decomposition with a good chance of liberating something nasty. Your oven maybe at 200c, but the radiant element is alot higher. We have an injection moulder here in t...
