Re: pcDuino3 just arrived, made a comparison with raspberryp

The other obvious comparison after a quick search is that raspberrypi is $40.08 delivered in 2-6 days whereas the pcduino is $79.99 ($77.99 on special) delivered in 10-15 days - so you could have 2PI a week earlier..

Re: Openelec... View video files on 2nd SD Card???

Can you not login via ssh and enter the command

Code: Select all

ls -la /dev/sd*
to see what the device is listed as, and then:

Code: Select all

sudo mount /dev/sdX1 /mnt
you should then be able to view the files in openelec

Re: connect with ssh outside my LAN

Obviously i have disabled all the ports except ssh (which isnt on 22!!) so that it is a little bit more secure should anyone intercept the emails.

Re: connect with ssh outside my LAN

I had similar requirements, but took a more simplistic approach. I have a script that regularly runs:

wget -O - -q icanhazip.com > /home/pi/ip.txt

it then emails the contents of ip.txt to a separate gmail account, whihc i can just query when i need the latest IP to ssh to.

Re: pi powered parts room database with barcode scanner

I've done pretty much exactly this, except to use it for a kitchen inventory system, using a USB scanner

It all sits in a mysql server and a bunch of PHP pages serve the screen.

Its all pretty straightforward and depending on your skillset the options outlined above will get you on your way.

Re: Two cams, one 'Pi?

Not two camera modules as far as I know, but I have a webcam and camera module playing nicely together.

Re: Motion - Ip Camera Possible

What I have been doing that seems to work well is;

Use motion with a 'normal' webcam at low res, when motion is triggered, use the 'on_motion_detected' hook to call the raspistill command which then stores a full res image.

not the most elegant solution, but works well so far.

Cheap Charger (UK)

Not sure how many this will help, but picked up an LG phone charger today in Currys reduced to £4.67, works a treat.

Re: interesting status on the RS web site....

Sorry to burst your bubble, but RS are moving their ecommerce stuff and a load of other servers from a London data centre to scotland this weekend... nothing to do with the Pi per se, but it will be more robust so should cope a bit better anyway.
