    @ThaOneDude
    The wait is really difficult. Good luck with it!

    @Michelle I won mine in a giveaway. It went from Cali to NC in one day. It blew my mind.

    @jhh2450
    It's a 5-6 hour flight, so arriving in a day is very possible.

    Congratulations! :)

    @Michelle Yea but I've had packages come from a city 3 hours away that took 3 days lol.

    Meanwhile, across the country makes it in one day

    @Michelle maybe it wasn't dead and just wanted to take a picture with that awesome Pi. 😁

    @jhh2450
    That's strange tho. I guess the sender was too lazy to send it earlier?

    @shellbug
    I hope so lol. I'd feel too digusted to sleep if a dead fly was laying in my room.
  • 4
    @Michelle so you prefer having a living fly flying around in your room? That would make me go crazy.
  • 6
    @shellbug
    I usually keep my window open at night, so flies usually fly out.

    It's those small mosquitos that are the real trouble. They never leave and their flying is really loud.

    So what's your plan with this raspberry pie?

    @EmptyStack
    Not sure yet, but I think I might make a tablet with my own operating system.

    Just remember that when you want to plugin a ribbon cable, the pin number 1 is the bottom leftmost pin when you have the GPIO furthest away from you.

    Hope you don't have to burn a servo and an rfid reader to find out like i did!

    Have fun with it and let us know what you built

    What did you plan as your first project?

    Install pi.hole and take this ++1

    To everyone who just got their Pi today - look to buy the 5.1V/2.5A charger, it's the best one. I used to have a 5V/2A one and it never supplied enough power to the thing. Also, for heavier projects, there's a transparent case which comes with a fan. Happy tinkering!

    That isn't the only thing that ca... Nevermind.

    @Dimmerworld
    Yeah it is. My books don't come until later today.

    @Michelle Not what he meant. Don't worry. Stay pure child, stay pure lol

    @Michelle God you are either playing dumb or you are super innocent. And neither of those are super great things at the age of 16.
  • 6
    @ThaOneDude
    I'm not playing dumb. My ignorance isn't my fault. I'm naturally a stupid person. I want to be able to understand what everyone keeps saying on devRant, but everytime I understand it incorrectly all they says is

    "Keep being innocent"

    "Sweet innocent 16"

    "Don't let your mind get corrupted"

    And it's so confusing. Stay innocent from what exactly and what was @Dimmerworld trying to say??

    @Michelle Seriously don't worry about it. You'll figure it out one day.

    @jhh2450
    I really hope so! It's annoying when I'm the only one who doesn't understand the jokes, because that makes me the joke.

    (Holy shit. That gives me an idea for a poem.)
  • 2
    @Michelle I used to be the same way. It's no big deal. Being pure > understanding crude jokes lol

    @jhh2450

    I need to buy one.
    Never buy a Acer laptop

    @Triskelion what in the name of the good Lord are you building?
  • 2
    @ozeta86
    I need to flash my bios to unlock advanced settings. But Acer has blocked it. Using that thing i can unlock my bios. It connects to the bios chip without activating chips around it. This way I can change the value and voila advanced settings are ready to use.

    I run Linux, on occasion I need to use Adobe products. Wine sucks dual boot takes me to long reboot make changes reboot check if it's good reboot.

    So what I want to de is use virtualization from the bios up.

    When using for instance wine, I start Linux run wine run Photoshop, make a change Photoshop a renders it bij sending it to wine wine sends it to Linux Linux to GPU and backup the chain it goes. So wine runs on top of Linux.
    What I am building bij using qemu kvm PCI passthrough. Is a system that runs windows aside from Linux. This way I can use 100% of my GPU on windows. While not interfering with Linux.

    I run Linux and windows next to each other instead of on top.

    What're all of you PI owners gonna make :DDDD

    @brasorexia I've made a dust collecting device! 😀😂

    I accidentally broke my microSD card and don't have a spare. Plus my wifi here at school is total shit, and I'm using the only Ethernet port to connect to my laptop.

    @jhh2450 get a router

    @brasorexia probably Plex server, 3D printer server, web server and SDR recorder(for ATC communications and stuff)

    Don't think you purpose to put circuit board on carpet. 😮

    @sunfishcc
    Everyone keeps saying that. -_-
    I know, but I only did it for the picture, it's not like I kept it there all day.

    Just saying: but exposed clothing texture (talking about blanket behind) makes my teeth grizzle with some strange feeling on my skin. Am not even able to enjoy my living room chairs :(

    Is there some cure for this?
  • 2
    @voiid
    Uh, what? I'm sorry, but I don't know what you're saying. Something about blankets amd clothing texture?
