Major popping between songs is very annoying! I think it was very needed. ;)

A limitation of the analog output, for sure. :)

 

I wonder if that could be filtered out with a high pass filter. Is that something Jim looked at?

Don't think so. He found something that would keep the audio path open between songs if I remember correctly.

I'm thinking of putting me name down for a pre order of the MoPi. It would be most useful for me. :breakfast:

 

Put me name down some time ago and got this today.

 

Hi,

 

Thanks for signing up to the MoPi pre-order list.

 

We've just sent out the boards for our Kickstarter backers, and

are now building a new set for pre-order customers.

 

This means we should be able to send you a board in around 3-4

weeks time...

 

Sorry to be slow, and thanks for your support!

 

Best,

 

Hamish Cunningham

One of the coolest things I've done with the RPi is to turn a USB printer into a wireless AirPrint compatible printer. Did you all know that Apple bought the CUPS project and turned that into AirPrint?

 

So on Linux all you have to do is hook up a USB printer, install CUPS and Bonjour (in Linux it's avahi package). The nice thing about Apple pumping money into CUPS is that it works flawlessly in Linux now. To make the print server Windows compatible you can install Samba although IPP does seem to work in Windows if you want to do it that way.

I found this,

 

 

Raspberry PI, THE HOME SERVER (TURNKEY LINUX)

 

 

Which led me to this

 

 

Ultimate Pi Home Server

 

 

We will be using the operating system image from Ghoulmann.We'll download it later. The image is based on Raspian, which is a Debian flavor adapted for the Pi, that runs turnkey out the box.

 

Now we've almost finished. The final procedure is to unplug the power, remove the SD and create a back-up image of the OS in it's current state. This way if something goes wrong you have a basic fresh custom set-up to return to.

 

 

Over 6,000 words and more than 170 illustrative diagrams and images later, we have reached the end.

If you made it this far, well done. I hope you found it an awesome journey. The learning curve may have been steep, but i encourage you to fly from the nest and begin to lean more about the Linux world.

 

I thought this was the biz. The chap deserves a medal for his effort. :breakfast:

With the financial outlook here being bleak I decided to splash out and finally place an order for a Mo-Pi. Should arrive next week , just in time for the bad weather to set in and force me to play with me Pi's again. :rolleyes:

 

See post 339 for Mo-PI details.

Stuck with how to use your Pi ? Have a look below as it says it would make a decent present for that not to be mentioned occasion that is looming in the distant future. thumb.gif

Our friends over in the Bookazine department have made something really special – the first edition of Raspberry Pi Annual – and just in time for **************, too!

Now this is really interesting and looks easy peasy.

 

 

 

Quote: The themes of a lot of our Raspberry Pi guides revolve around the size and portability of the Pi itself, lending it to tasks you may have used a full-sized or small computer for in the past that the Pi can now take over. Having your own private cloud is another excellent use of the Raspberry Pi’s capabilities, because you can store it hidden away somewhere and it will require very little day- to-day maintenance.

There is also this fine software for making Pi clouds which is even easier to use than the above. It is let down a tad as you hardly have to use the command line.laughing.gif

Raspberry Pi 2 on sale now at $35

 

 

 

Let’s get the good stuff out of the way above the fold. Raspberry Pi 2 is now on sale for $35 (the same price as the existing Model B+), featuring:

  • A 900MHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 CPU (~6x performance)
  • 1GB LPDDR2 SDRAM (2x memory)
  • Complete compatibility with Raspberry Pi 1

Because it has an ARMv7 processor, it can run the full range of ARM GNU/Linux distributions, including Snappy Ubuntu Core, as well as Microsoft Windows 10.

 

Raspberry Pi 2 review – not all the same

 

 

It worked fantastically well; while performing normal computer actions there was none of the classic slowdown the Pi used to get. We could upgrade the system and comfortably do other tasks such as web browsing or even word processing. Simple yet appreciated, and on the surface that’s really about it for the Raspberry Pi 2. There is no real killer feature of the updated Raspbian that we can point to that illustrates the new Pi’s full abilities.

However, this is frankly a great thing. The Raspberry Pi Foundation’s mission has always been education, and with the amount of excellent tutorials and software that already exist for the Raspberry Pi, making the Pi 2 very different would make the last three years of work obsolete.

Ha don't know why but I ordered one. :Laughing:

 

Because you have more £ than you know what to do with. ;)

 

I have a plan.

 

I hope to run

or

 

http://www.instructables.com/id/Raspberry-PI-THE-HOME-SERVER-TURNKEY-LINUX/

 

or something similar. so that I can run a Ghost blogg from home along with a cloud server for fun.

 

That is if I live long enough. :hysterical:

Whilst the Pi is still top favourite there are some decent alternatives as this neat article shows.

 

:breakfast:

Had I known this was coming I might have held off buying my Odroid C1 but then again the new Pi won't run Android. With the Odroid I can boot either android or Ubuntu, depending on what I want to do. Once the new Pi gets Win 10, I might consider getting one just to see how it runs.

I did some reading around this new Pi and it looks like you may be able to get Android working on it. No links I am afraid to say and am too busy to provide any. Android for Pi may still be a work in progress I did not pay too much attention to the info as I am not interested. :breakfast:
