Re: Raspbian is finally, formally here!

I can confirm the awesomeness. The front end menu for automatically resizing the partition, overscan, time zone, location and all of those configuration settings was especially nice. And yes, it's much, much faster.

Re: I made a Raspberry PI Laptop

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8142/7544212192_aae094fc9d_b.jpg My Raspberry Pi finally arrived last night, here's a picture of the initial boot. Everything with the lapdock seems to be working fine. I have not tried out the usb wireless device yet, although the Raspi did recognize usb hard drives t...

Re: I made a Raspberry PI Laptop

It's pretty obvious that those of us with lapdocks have been too busy to put our Pi boards in a case, and the existing Pi case designs will cause the entire Pi plus case to hang over the back of the rotating pop-up Atrix cradle, supported solely by the lapdock microHDMI male connector if a microHDM...

Re: I made a Raspberry PI Laptop

I believe someone had raspi sound over hdmi working. Since I don't have mine yet I've been using an Xbox to test out the lapdock sound and video over hdmi. Since the lapdock doesn't have a headphone jack I am using the speaker outputs and running them to a headphone jack.

Re: I made a Raspberry PI Laptop

My lapdock arrived on Friday ($60 shipped from ebay), so I figured I would dig into it today while I wait for my raspi to show up. My plan is to not use the flip-out tray, and instead run short cables for usb power, usb data, hdmi, and headphone jack all out through the left side of the case in the ...

Re: My Element 14/USA ship date is tomorrow, June 28

I ordered launch day (Feb 29th) and most recently had 6/18, 6/21, 6/28 ship dates. Now they're telling me some orders have slipped a week due to unforeseen problems. It's to the point where they're not even willing to guess on a date any more.

Re: Anyone in the US get a ship date from Newark (Element/14

I ordered ~9am Central time on 2/29, my ship date was 5/29 last week, but has now changed to 6/12.

Order number 161196. I'm not sure what to believe any more, so I'm just going to be surprised whenever it actually shows up at my doorstep.

Re: Cases for the Raspberry Pi

<t>Jim Manley, JRV, thanks for the comments. JRV, nice to see there's some Minneapolis presence around here!<br/> <br/> I picked up the hardware I needed today and put the sides together.  I think I will try flame polishing the edges (after testing on a scrap piece first).  The grommets seem to work...

Re: Cases for the Raspberry Pi

<t>Here is my concept for a Raspberry Pi case<br/> <br/> Since there are no mounting holes in the PCB, my thought is to hold the edges using rubber panel grommets.  With ports on all sides, I decided against sides on my 'case'.<br/> <br/> The top and bottom panels will be 3/16" thick opaque blue acr...
