Re: Synology OS on a Pi?

<r>Sorry if this is a stupid question, but...<br/> <br/> I have two Synology NAS servers and I'm very pleased with them. Some of these models run on ARM CPUs and use only 128MB or even less. The Synology OS (called DSM) is published under the GPL license.<br/> <br/> Could this OS run on a Pi?<br/> <...

Re: Will the second batch os Rpi's be enough for everyone?

<t>I'm not sure I agree. Not from knowledge in the field, just gut feeling.<br/> <br/> They have customers, only a fool would not try to sell. My guess is they try to make these continuously and get all these people aboard as new customers, which is also very valuable. I never heard of them before, ...

Re: FishPi - automated surface vessel.

<t>If you want to keep it under power constantly, a quick calculation:<br/> <br/> Pi uses 700mA @ 5V so you need 5 x 0.7 x 24 = 84 Wh.<br/> <br/> Propulsion (smallest standard engine for small boats) = 12 x 5.28 x 24 = 1521  Wh<br/> <br/> Total is about 1600 Wh. If you're in the tropics you have say...

Re: Pi In Space!

<r>If the RasPi lives up to expectations it's only a matter of time before one will be used in space, probably in (something like) a <URL url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CubeSat">http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CubeSat</URL>, a typical 'student thing' .

<t>Great project. I can see the days of the explorers come back: first the Channel, then the Atlantic and finally non-stop around the world <br/> <br/> I was thinking that for traveling around the ocean wouldn't it be possible to submerge to a depth of say 10 meters and let the vessel be carried by ...
