  1. Ti is offering free shipping on all orders with coupon code 20%OFFKILBYDAY.
  2. I totally understand where the frustration comes from (I started with RH3 circa 1997. Having multiple mods who communicate and cooperate well has made all the difference. As I tell our users who experience that some frustration - sometimes the better part of valor is to walk away and let someone else deal with the question. The thing with networking is that the Pi Foundation made a non standard change to how networking was configured and in what file the changes lived (spring of last year). We have seen dozens of questions with regard to static IP's since. That and the change you mentio
  3. Yeah, if you look at the home page the avg reputation is less than 100, and most of them are 1 - which means they have never had an account on any of the stackexchange sites. It is the nature of the beast with noobs, personally I think the bigger issue is they don't know how to ask a good question - since they have never done it. So they often get more questions/requests for more info than answers. Overall we try and help anyone who comes along without using RTFM.
  4. Depending on the speed you need you can use a: USB WiFi dongle, USB to Ethernet adapter, serial to Ethernet adapter, or an ESP8266. The first two will need an adapter or USB OTG cable, and may require a powered hub to work reliably. There are also several boards like this one that add standard USB ports to the Pi (they use pogo pins), which would not require the OTG cable/adapter. The last two will require you to solder wires or pins to connect them to the GPIO pins, and will be much slower. As for the IoT HAT mentioned by Rei Vilo, I have one of these and it can be ordered wi
  5. I have 11 and a twelfth on the way. I am also one of the mods on Stack Exchanges' Pi specific site. I use my Pi's to run my information dashboard, build light, and I am currently working on a bench cam that will move left to right above the bench as well as pan and tilt.
  6. Original price was $34.99 per the slides in this video from Ti
  7. Ti dropped a new launchpad today, it isn't even listed on the ti.com/launchpad page. From the email: "the world
  8. @abecedarian Thank you so much for your help. I just ordered the correct connector to button up this project.
  9. I am finally getting my display into a proper enclosure and need a little help. To that end I am looking to replace the temporary wiring with something a little more robust than the breadboard jumpers I am currently using for the power connections, but have no idea what the connector is called so I can order one. It looks like a supersized JST connector. Thanks in advance.
  10. For others who may be waiting, I never got the follow up email, but it showed up today via UPS.
  11. @@nickn I have not gotten mine. I did get an email telling me a distributor would contact me for my address, but have not heard. Did you get contacted by a distributor, or did it just show up? Are you in the US?
  12. Just noticed a new launchpad MSP-EXP430FR4133 appeared on the website this morning: Microcontroller Features16MHz 16 KB FRAM 2 KB RAM 256-segment LCD controller 10-channel 10-bit ADC 3 16-bit timers 60 GPIO SPI, I2C and UART Support BoosterPack connector20 pin BoosterPack connector Why this LaunchPad?Lowest power MCU in the industry with an integrated LCD controller Integrated 16kB FRAM for experiencing fast non-volatile memory writes Analog and digital integration including a 10-bit ADC and IR Modulation Logic Price$13.99
  13. If these are still available I have a project that I can use them with.
