              Hi, I'm Gary from South Africa - sad that my country wasn't on the list when registering, hope shipping is available if I need to buy something ! I am here because I found the Ben Heck show on youtube . I am an IT Administrator at a school and I am interested in Raspberry Pi projects. :wave:

                my first microcontroller was the arduino and this is what I use in every project.

                  The giveaways are great ....UNLESS you live in one of the countries listed.

                   

                  I thought we had a solution to overcome that some time ago.

                   

                  As I've said previously and to Sabrina, you only need to add a single sentence to overcome this (which wasn't for these type of giveaways), ie

                  complete the following sentence "E....nt14 rocks" to turn the giveaway into a game of skill.

                  This could be applied to any winners that were from those countries, to save everyone if necessary.

                   

                   

                  Thanks

                    Gary,

                       Normally, either Jason or Nicole would respond promptly with a friendly "hello" from E-14.

                    But this being a weekend, you either have to wait a couple of days, or do it yourself.

                    One way to do it yourself is to click "Reply" to any message (while logged in), to bring

                    up the message editor.  Then click on "HTML" in the upper-right corner to toggle into

                    html mode.  Then paste the following line:

                     

                        <button type="button" onclick="alert('Hello');">click here</button>

                     

                    Then toggle out of html mode by clicking on "Show Full Editor" in the upper-right corner.

                    You should see a button that says "click here".  If you click that, you should get the

                    weekend version of the much sought after friendly "hello" from element14.com.

                     

                    Click "Cancel" at the bottom to exit without posting the reply.

                     

                    Note that sometimes paste doesn't work like you expect in the message editor.

                    You might right-click the mouse to paste, but paste won't be one of the options. 

                    If that happens, you can press the Ctrl button while you right-click.

                      Not particularly happy... I've been a member for a few months and already posts have diverted me to an online pharmacy (my post regarding this was deleted by a Mod) and today every discussion seems to be in an Asian language.

                       

                      Both viris scan and malware scan is clean, and this seems to be the only site doing this.

                        David,

                          Your previous post regarding an online drug store doesn't appear to have

                        been deleted.  It's still here:

                        http://www.element14.com/community/message/79212#79212/l/re-why-is-the-500-lpc800-mini-kits-to-giveaway-trying-to-forward-me-to-a-drug-store

                        which I found by clicking on your avatar to see recent posts.

                         

                        On June 8 in that thread you wrote: "now all the english discussions are gone"

                        It seems that somehow your language preferences are screwed up, and you

                        are not seeing English posts like everyone else is.

                         

                        When I go to the Embedded discussion forum, I see recent posts in English,

                        like you would expect, and no spam.

                            There may have been one or more posts at the end of that thread that were deleted,

                            but the thread itself is still there with 5 posts.  If one of the replies was deleted, then

                            everything following that including one of your replies might have been deleted.

                            OK, now it's happening to me too!  And when I click on your avatar, it only

                            shows one thread in "Recent Activity"

                             

                            This kind of behavior has been seen before on this site due to having two

                            machines hosting the database, because they can get out of sync somehow,

                            and it isn't deterministic which machine will handle any particular query.

                            I think the admins will need to sort it out.

                             

                            Anyway, it doesn't appear to indicate any new spam, it is just not showing

                            the English/French/German posts in the Embedded forum, leaving 2-year-old

                            Chinese posts showing.

                             

                            Edited to add:

                            It's working again fine for me.  I can set the language to English, French, or

                            German and see posts in the Embedded thread, but if give any other language,

                            including Chinese, I don't see any posts in that thread, although viewing

                            user Jackson's profile shows lots of 2-year-old posts in the Embedded group.

                                I didn't know Vulcan-Klingon hybrids were possible. Which blood color is dominant?

                                  Hello everyone, I'm Rob.

                                   

                                  I have a background in information systems but changed professions about 5 years ago.

                                   

                                  My goal here is to see if I can DIY some piano stairs in our house.

                                  I'm thinking about buying a Rasp Pi and Arduino but I'm unsure of the sensing foot steps. 

                                  I thought about pressure pads on the stairs (or under the laminate) but after some googling I've changed focus to IR beam sensors per stair. Its all still a thought in process but I think my kids would love it and I'd learn a lot doing it.

                                  After more research and planning I might post a thread on the project and how its going.

                                   

                                  TLDR - Hi.

                                    Hello All,

                                     

                                         My name is Harry Strock, I may be among the oldest members of this discussion; I am certainly among the most inexperienced, i.e., I have none.   

                                         I have just purchased an RPi  -- and by the way, I went to school there 50 years ago.

                                     

                                         My interests are many:

                                            1)  Education, I have mentored high school honors science students (for 30 years) in the nationally unique Wachusett Regional High School's Science Seminar Program

                                            2)  Data acquisition, residential heating system monitoring, analog inputs

                                            3)  Image transfer,  digitizing 8mm home movies

                                              etc

                                     

                                              NOW I HAVE A NEWBIE QUESTION  --   BACKFEEDING??

                                     

                                         After doing a reasonable amount of research, I selected the Manhattan 7port powered USB hub from Adafruit, in addition the the "starter package" micro USB power adapter-- to power my RPi.

                                     

                                         Will the extra money I spent on the Manhattan hub "protect" me from backfeeding?

                                          Is there some way to catch overpowering before the board heats up?

                                        

                                         Your advice will be appreciated.

                                     

                                         Regards,

                                         The oldman
