Re: SD Cards Blowing

I hope your project has much success, I'm just trying to give you a little assistance. The small side project that I work on runs on the Raspberry Pi (all models ever made inclusive.) While we may only have +10k site installs of the project, I think that sample size gives me a little insight into th...

Re: Pi Zero order limit?

(because Foundation wouldn't say they were frantically making Pi3) RPF doesn't make Pi3's, the only model made by the RPF is the Zero. We can get pedantic, or we can face the reality of what is going on now. You'll be able to buy bulk Zero's when the distributors (not the RPF) decides they want to ...

Got that too. Isn't it nice not to have to NAT it? 200ms ping times.

Re: PuTTY and No-IP

When you visit google.com how do you know you are using IPv6? Because I use https://ipv6.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl most often. Perhaps not a flop. Just gaining traction very slowly.

Re: PuTTY and No-IP

That is interesting. So does that mean IPv6 is a flop of an initiative? Or is it just slow for adoption? It's very far from a flop. There's about a /20 or of IPv4's that aren't McNugget'd and those are ARIN. Try to get routable from APNIC and you're going to be out of luck. The doom and gloom of ru...

Re: Kids computer addiction

In some cases it doesn't stifle innovation, it increases it. My parents thought I was spending too much time SysOp'ing a BBS I had set up. So they locked the case (back in the days of the 386/486 where the cases had a little barrel key that just basically jumpered a header on the mobo. So that lead ...

Re: How Do I Find Out Who Manufactured My Pi??

Revision : a22082


That's the key digit in finding the manufacturer. Match that up with the list HermannSW provided and you find that 0x02 (which is just hex notation for 2) is Embest. If that digit was a 0, then it would be a Sony, if it was a 1 then it would be Egoman.

Perhaps a loop on the list? (Haven't tested this, so check the syntax, just typing this in.)

Code: Select all

to_list = ["ted@bear.com", "bill_and_ted@excellent.com", "Keanu@badacting.com"]
msg = "TESTING"
