Re: Minecraft/Spigot breaks my SD cards?

I would recommend locating anything with regular disk access on an external hard drive. You will not only get speed gains, but you will also see less corruption in the long run. SD cards have a limited read/write capacity at any given location, so relying on them is not a good long term strategy, un...

Re: Rasberry Pi Doesn't Do... Anything...

Re: Raspberry Pi as a commercial home media center

Although I understand the enthusiasm for an rpi system done commercially, I thought I would suggest taking a look at some of the existing offerings. I personally use a WD HDTV live plus. It does everything an rpi does, but it comes with a remote, and I got mine for $80. I suspect this price point wo...
