Setup of the controller node  SSH The latest raspbian disables SSH by default so I turned that on and changed the hostname and password.   External disk As mentioned about this is a USB disk, so it was simply a case of plugging it in and it being detected. I had a problem detecting the old IDE disk so I swapped in a SATA disk I had spare.   I'm not much of a command line guru so I installed gparted a graphical disk utility that I'd used before for repairing problem disks. I form ...
Morning all!   I'm working on a little Pi Project, and I'd like to get your input on logistics or and ideas you might have to make it easier/better.   Basically, I'd like to have a device that can run Retropie with dedicated gaming buttons, and also run an Andrid like tablet operating system.   The idea is that I have a custom Tablet case with a touchscreen, and inside there will be 2 Raspberry Pi units, one of them running RetroPie, and one running Android or an alternative. I ...
Following a discussion from DABs review of the Bitscope Blade Uno, I thought it was worth quickly mentioning the different sockets and pins you get on the bays of the blade.   Socket for Pi This is a standard 2mm x 40 way socket for mounting the Raspberry Pi, it will fit all of the 40pin Pi including the zero. Aux Power This a 3 pin header with Gnd, +5v and Gnd. The power is aways on when there is power to the blade.   Power control This is a 2x2 header with a jumper connecting +5v w ...
Here's a video I put together to explain how to ssh into retropie from another computer running ubuntu. This allows you to transfer games, or whatever files you want to any folders on your Raspberry pi 3. I kept the video short and to the pont, let me know what you think. How can I make it better? Thanks for checking it out!   https://youtu.be/ksEOzpEokVE ...

"HELLO WORLD":   My name is Xavi Lazaro and I live in Barcelona - Spain. As a fan of 80's computers I always dreamed to be in that garage era where one could build his own micro computer using some sort of kit and letting your imagination flow...   ... So this was the idea, to build having fun an old looking computer as seen 30 years ago! But, history says that you need a partner to end computer business with success so what better than my daughter Iris.   Hi I am Iris! Why did I ...
As mentioned it the previous post, I'm building a small render farm for Blender using the Bitscope Blade. I decided to mount all the components on a sheet of wood so that I could pack the whole thing away when I was not using it.   Power Back in March I put together a kit that turned an ATX power supply into a Benchtop Powersupply  I had another of the same 1U ATX supplies that would work well for this project. I chopped up some extension cables so that I could simply plug the supply ...
