Re: Pi Day is coming - I just might take the plunge

Update: With all of the running around and places closing in the past week, I've had trouble getting the new SD card loaded w/ an OS. Just now redownloaded a minimal version (Desktop YES, full Apps Suit NO), and we'll see if this one is a good download or not. [edit] - I'm stalled for a min due to u...

Re: Pi Day is coming - I just might take the plunge

Update: I've been able to download the Minimal OS installer @ 400meg. There are two others, both w/ Desktops, the third also including pre-loaded Apps as well. Something like 1G & 2.9G in size, respectively. With all the places shut down these days, it's hard to find the Big Pipelines to download fr...

First of all, in that top panel, Digit is nekk'd!

Secondly, also in that top panel is mention made of Clorine. I'd of thought the place would use Salt Water, then it dawned me that they could easily have more than the one pool...

Re: What about the Vivaldi browser?

Re: Stay Safe 2020-03-16

I just read something (I think it might have been on Rolling Stone's web site) that ran down the basic steps we've been coming to know, but one thing struck me as important: It's not just to keep ourselves from getting sick, it's about not affecting those who can't handle it as well. I have a lot of...

Re: Pi Day is coming - I just might take the plunge

Well, I dun'd it. I went by Central Computer on the way home last night and bought a small 'kit'; - Raspberry Pi v4, w/ 4Gig RAM - OEM 5v/3A power supply - a couple of small heat sinks - a very thin 'book' entitled ; oh wait, it's just a Quick Start Guide... There were a couple of ways to go, includ...

Pi Day is coming - I just might take the plunge

I'd been interested in Raspberry Pi(s) since they first came out, and instead of buying a mid-range laptop for around $300, I think I'll do the Pi thing for a hundred or so. They bundle these Starter Kits together with a first-times reference book, and that extra cash difference would be available f...
