Looks about the same, similar price with supplied adapters. Reference to heat dissipation might suggest resistive-based?
UK folks can get identical item from Amazon by swapping .com for .co.uk
EBay has them for 3-4quid direct from HK, as long as you're prepared to wait for delivery!

I like the way omxplayer plays audio files. Keyboard shortcuts are useful.

If you make omxplayer use a smaller window I fear that the acceleration won't work
and a jerky video will result. I believe acceleration needs a full screen.

Your recent blog has the following...

Code:
/usr//bin/g++-4.8


Is that correct? two backslashes?

Them's forward slashes or virgules.

We'll have none of that MS rubbish here.

Looks like the admin denied everyone access to it.

- Maybe because of too many visitors? Cool

Over at the RPi Forum, DavidS is showering praises on Puppy.

Not sure whether this unfortunate chap is dyslexic or uses the Cyrillic alphabet in his native tongue? I've tried to tell him twice that it's BARRY not Berry. He did correct a couple of his mistakes and did tell us he's in Arizona but he didn't correct his initial howler and now he's back at the Berry lark again! Frankly, it's a bit of an insult given the long-term exposure and plaudits BK has received, although Barry is a fairly easy-going guy.

As for the 403, now showing 'Forbidden', it all started late yesterday afternoon GMT, corrected itself in the evening, but back again this morning. If Barry's on one of his hikes or burning the midnight oil with his RPi venture, he may not even be aware of the problem?

I only tried a couple of videos in a "window" about half the saize of the screen, they played smoothly.

it isn't a window really, as Omxplayer draws directly to the screen.

Those two slashes look like typo.

I logged into hostgator.com, and yes, there was a ticket waiting for me. Yep, too much traffic.

My "unlimited" account isn't really.

It is my Perl blog that is causing the problem. I can't get on myself, sent them a ticket, suggesting that I disable my two archived blogs, http://barryk.org/blog and http://barryk.org/blog2

...which I will do, when they let me in.

I wonder... my blogs have been there for years, why the problem now? Unless the masses over at the Raspberry Pi forum are looking in on my blog.

Local TV news reported 2 hours ago that another hostgator client was in difficulty due to demand for tickets (or bad coding)

I do not know if BaCon is in DEV but could we get it with TinyC
http://basic-converter.proboards.com/thread/791/configuring-bacon-raspberry-pi-raspbian

But can we call it BeCon as a joke for DividS. Rolling Eyes

I did have a childhood friend Berry, and that was the way it was spelled. Razz

Yes, they restored it, with a warning that I should look at reining traffic in (somehow).

So, I have disabled my oldest blog, http://barryk.org/blog, as from traffic logs that is getting a lot of hits. Which is strange.

I will probably change it into static web pages. When I get around to it.

Yes, BaCon is in the devx pet.

I actually get called Berry quite often. It recently happened at Dominos Pizza, I gave my name, even spelt it out, but the fellow typed in "Berry". Someone told me, that's because he is Indian (as in the sub-continent of India).

Past experience, people from the USA also think my name is Berry when I tell them "Barry".

Should not have called it Quirky.

RasBarry sounds about right.

I could never understand why you never ever posted on
Whirlpool Forum here in OZ.

Anyway I posted below and just now the recent review by David.

Probably there is a way to set up cached pages at hostgator? (Yes, even for static pages.)

It's CPU load that they watch, and I guess the Perl script is the load generator.

Also, it will help to provide a highly visible link to your post in the RPi forum.
