Re: What have we missed?

<t>Quote from EWH on July 29, 2011, 22:50<br/> An alternative might be to make one of the USB ports on the R.Pi a USB mini-AB port. One could then connect two R.Pi's together using a mini-A to mini-B USB lead with one R.Pi being the host and the other one being the device, and copy files that way.<b...

Re: Raspi: short for Raspberry Pi

I was proposing "Raspi" for the device. I think in most cases the name Raspberry Pi (and any shorthand) will be invoked to mean the device.

Re: Raspi: short for Raspberry Pi

<t>Quote from MDC on July 30, 2011, 14:36<br/> Why not just rp, quick and easy, or maybe some form of RP, Like R-P or R?.<br/> <br/> <br/> I think "Raspi" preserves the sense of the name "Raspberry Pi" and gives the device a warm name that, IMHO, RP doesn't.<br/> <br/> "Raspi" can be pronounced: Ras...

Re: How would you use a Raspberry Pi device?

<t>Quote from hardcore on July 29, 2011, 09:21<br/> WiFi makes the per-unit go up nastily.
