Ah it's not a mistake, they just call the microphone board a HAT. It's more of a little add-on board connected by a wire

Hiya,

We have seen some of these floating around online although I can't find one right this moment. There is a database of the first 30 issues that was put together before the handover as well.

Next time I see one I'll make a note of it and post it here

Re: Help Wanted Issue 46 Page 32 Internet Radio

Ah thanks for catching that, looks like the schematic got changed a bit right at the end of making the feature and we didn't notice it. Code is completely my fault. I've updated the GitHub and we'll be starting an errata section in issue 48

Re: MagPi subscription for complete Noob

As pointed out, they're all free so you can see if it's right for you. We try to keep all the projects and tutorials we write as plain-English as possible - honestly the best way is to just get stuck in and see what clicks!
