Wow, it's chilly in here... if someone can find it cheaper please let me know as am going to purchase it tomorrow otherwise.

I'm sure the pumps on the nilfisk are Aluminium as opposed to plastic on karcher. Also the flow rate is more on nilfisk. Nilfisk all the way for me

Wonder if anyone has an opinion whether this would be the better buy or whether the Karcher K4 that was posted today would trump it... http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/karcher-k4-premium-home-pressure-washer-149-99-wickes-2636634

I am genuinely interested in opinion:

Still a good price - thanks for posting. Will have a think but may well purchase myself.

I have no idea how the £112 price got into the description as I didn't put it there so have now amended. It is £112 Excl VAT so is £134ish Inc VAT and delivery

I can confirm that Robotron: 2084 is playable with both joysticks and is just as insane and intense as i remember it (And i'm just as bad at it as i always was!!)

Will be finishing the build this weekend and posting some pics / videos of the completed item, then its for sale while i build another (For no other reason than i enjoyed building and learning so much!)

. The controller measures the resistance of the element during "off" … . The controller measures the resistance of the element during "off" cycles. The resistance of the element changes with temperature. As the element has little mass, it has little thermal inertia and quickly cools to the temperature of the bit during an "off" cycle. As it gets near the set temperature, the zero-crossing controller increases the number of "off" cycles, giving more time for the temperature to equalise and thus more accurate temperature measurement. It will get less accurate the larger the demand - but generally great temperature accuracy isn't needed when soldering big lumps of metal..



thanks for that wandered how it worked

Thanks for that, had a look at that and also found out about the A20 based Cubieboard 2, similar but can be had for £47 on Ebay or a bit less direct, plus case:

I would go for the Cubieboard 2 right now more or less, but may wait instead for the new CubieTruck, which also will have Gbit ethernet, 2GB RAM, VGA, SPDIF and cost $89:

Also there's been recent good progress on native drivers for the Allwinner A10/A20. If these boards can get XBMC with full HW video then they definitely tick all the right boxes for me, I can see them being quite popular.

didnt find it fiddly at all.

in fact I liked how you can connect to a pc, and then use the built in angstrom distro right out the box. even has some tutorials on it.

went here: http://www.armhf.com/

and got debian on it with very little fuss.

This camera costs like £2 to produce and they want this kinda money for it! plus its a pain to use.


The Raspberry hardware is intended for intelligent people to learn about computers.

You didn't learn anything.

This product is not for you, go back to buying consumer electronics that come with instruction manuals.

so who is this raspbarry. i agree he must have been drunk while typing this.

Now while i agree its an amazing device for those with the time, and for media its also great (wack a microsoft mce receiver on it and your golden), ive voted cold as this isnt a deal, they have always been this price.

Does it come with all DLC maps, and is it backwards compatible with N64 carts?

It's clear that those posting negative comments don't know what this is.

That's a good deal, I'd vote that one hot.

Some lessons in constructing a sentence that makes sense on any level might be a better investment than a smart tv. Cpc are now doing the pi with a case for just a couple of quid more by the way.

You were right - this is pound for pound MUCH better than the ATV2.

Currently have mine working with Openelec (also tried Xbian which is good as well), bought a Rii keyboard, found that my old Cyberlink IR works very well with it as well, XBMC Commander on iPhone/Ipad also does the job, bought a 16gb class 10 SD card (you don't need anything above 8gb though), bought a cheap wifi dongle (Realtek 8188C chipset) and a nice case for it. It's so good I might buy another, they're that cheap. When they come back in stock, that is.

agree router gui's are so 1990

Also how many RasPi users have just used a spare android phone / samsung cable they had lying around and is it worth not ordering the adapter and just taking this route?
