Re: Is this real? - Raspberry Pi Model B+

After HackADay it seems RPi foundation has realized deleting posts is futile.

With the PCB corner radius it looks like the RPi will finally fit in an altoid tin.

Re: Motion password protection

Actually it seems you need to use Apache or another server to password protect the stream. See comment / link here
Can you get a decent frame rate & resolution from your camera? The Pi's usb issues seem pretty limiting.

Re: Removing unnecessary connectors

I've used this method for removing parts intact from other pcbs. On the RasPi a soldering iron tip could lay across all 8 ethernet pins at once & you could just cut one or bothmounting pins topside to make things easier.

Finally, I would like to do the same with the USB and network ports. This would allow improved mounting options. The Pi could go anywhere in the case, and I could just add my required connectors where I want. Note that the RasPi ethernet jack has integrated magnetics for isolation. Unless you can r...

You can create a movement detection mask for 'motion'. It will then ignore the exact area of the image your marked off.

Definitely. You could actually order RASBRRY-MODB-512M item:2191863 on the USA newark site for a time. It was showing under Product Recommendations with a working buy button. $35 at that time.
