Re: Measuring Power Consumption

I should have been a little clearer, the plug in power meter is not accurate enough at that power level for a 'measurable difference'. My standard Pi at idle, X running, with keyboard, mouse and display plugged in runs at 2.25w (5v, 450mAh), which is quite a bit less than 2.6w. My buck power supply ...

Re: Measuring Power Consumption

The problem with that type of power meter is you're actually measuring the power consumption of the wall wart rather than the Pi itself. The accuracy at that wattage will probably be poor. The meter states +/- 1% +1w (minimum 1.5w) and it consumes 1.8w on it's own, I'm not sure if that is included i...

Re: Price hike???

No price hike. In the UK, Farnell and RS should be selling at the equivilent of $35 + S&H. Any other distributors may well be putting on a markup, but RS and Farnell should be $35. Model B prices may be that, but RS in the UK are charging roughly $31 for a Model A, whereas CPC are charging $25. Stu...

Re: dual boot - use different NIC?

Forgive me if I have misunderstood you, but couldn't you just have two NICs in each PC, one wired to the Windows network and the other to the Linux network.
In Windows disable the Linux NIC in device manager and in Linux disable the Windows NIC.

Hi
Is the keyboard faulty or can you not find the pipe key?
If it the latter then it's usually on the backslash key.
Hold down the 'shift' key and press \
The other option is hold down 'alt gr' key (the alt key to the right of the space bar) and press ¬ which is left of the 1 key
