Re: Think I have been ripped off :(

Sorry to hear about your experience not all that familiar with the site. Just a few questions. What OS are you using in general most do not need any files for wireless adapters so your not really out if using one of them. What issues are you having with the setup, what steps have you taken?

Re: Gertboard LED behaviour

The LED behavior when passing your hand near the board was explained a while ago by Gert I do not remember all the details but I think it had something to do with pull-up resistors were not added to save on cost, space, or something and the behavior should not cause damage. The original un-assembled...

Re: Which shutdown is better

There is no way to bypass a power loss and corruption. Search Kickstarter.com for Raspberry Pi there were 2 switches that are selling for around 15 it is not automatic but you could install a switch that shuts down the Pi. The following is from Raspbmc FAQ and is misleading or could be updated it do...

Re: Which shutdown is better

( I use Raspbmc and this one of its feature) Can you clarify the statement. Any time the Pi is writing to the SD Card it can corrupt it, if it looses power during the write. Other than increasing the number of times you have to re-image the card which will slowly cut down the life of the card and i...

Re: Speed of Burning SD cards - Help

Look for updated drivers from the PC manufacturer if it's built in. If straight USB look for issues there.

Re: R-Pi Antivirus & Firewall Needed?

I guess to keep on topic ;) Every one is correct. But for security it comes down to root vs privileges. root has them all so it is an easy step. But it also can be a headache. When running into sudo which no one likes. Weigh the need for an elevated account against elevating the privileges of the cu...

Setting a root password won't add security but in effect lower it to an extent. The root account is or should be disabled by default. By setting the password you are enabling the account which takes it from not being accessible to being accessible by cracking the password the root account in unskill...

Re: Build date on bottom?

Not sure but there should be a silk screen on the bottom 12 08 for example shows the board was screened on the 8th week of 2012 so a fresh board would be something around 13 12 I believe the board and assembly dates are not far behind each other.
