    Re: Hard Fork tweet bot. Sounds cool, and about right number.

    Got done over on the SDHC card I bought today, tried a different brand from my local supermarket, its going back tomorrow as its access speeds are so bad the pi hangs waiting to write, once I get a brand I know is good I will work on compiling feathercoind so I can work on the tweet bot.

    I need to have it ready before the announcement as I can see a few nights twiddling before it will be ready to go

    What brand of SDHC card did you get?

    Also, Was it a class 10?

    Id recommend jaycars cards but they have no change of mind policy for data storage products… Only standard warranty.

    The card was a Lexar.

    Class 10 is to do with the speed it can read and write.

    I normally buy Sandisk Ultra class 10 which work well.

    Coles will exchange without an argument, but even if they did I would read them the consumer act the product was not fit for purpose.

    Reading and writing to SDHC cards by Pi is very different to how cameras do, so what if fine for cameras may not be for a Pi, due to the fact the Pi does nots of small and read writes, not large writes like single photos.

    Oh ok. This is good to know as I sell arduino and also sdhc cards.

    Just gone all out and bought a SanDisk Extreme Class 10 UHS-1 card which going by the other peoples reports with the PI should make read times 10 to 15% faster and write times %25 to %30 faster, exactly what you want for running coind due to its high volume of rading and writing it will do.

    We will see if it was actually worth the extra $18 over a normal class 10 device tonight.

    My new Raspberry Pi B+ and new touchscreen have just arrived, so soon I will start on my arcade payment device V2

    Have just started to setup the new Raspberry Pi for my arcade payment device V2, but I expect this one will take me a couple of weeks to put together

    Look forward to seeing this 🙂

    Its on a few days pause as I just received myself a 3D printer and I just can’t help myself spending all my free time playing with this at the moment.

    Although I do have the display built and the new kernel loaded onto the Pi to make it work.

    I’ve also installed most of the Python modules I need.

    We have a 3d printing “pen” at work now. What’s your thought on those tmuir?


  • | Tip kris_davison

    Wow just searched for those and they are pretty amazing. Would be great to designers making prototypes. 🙂

    You mean glue-gun? 😃

    Sorry I missed this post until now.

    I’ve never used the 3d printing ‘pens’ but have seen them.

    I think they might be fun or of interest for those with artistic ability, to create interesting 3D art, but not sure how practical they are for other things

    I could imagine using it for repairs… like plastic glue almost.
