As regular readers will probably already know, I picked up one of the new Raspberry Pi 4 single-board computers a week or three ago.
I also have one of the original RPi model A with a whole 256MB of RAM and a RPi 2 with a much more practical 1GB of RAM and quad-core CPU.
The performance jump from the original Pi to the version 2 was quite significant such that my original unit was quickly retired from KODI duties and now sits in a box doing five-eights of bugger-all.
I bought the latest Pi for service as a webserver designed to deliver up videos as an alternative to those hosted by YouTube for my two channels. I've got it set up with a 240GB SSD via a SATA to USB3 converter and it hangs off a port on my router.
By now it should be running a copy of Apache and doing all sorts of clever things in the video/web-serving department... but it's not, and here's why...
Yes, people have been complaining about the lack of forums for months now so I finally got off my chuff and finished the transition to the new server and the commissioning of the new forums.Unfortunately you will have to re-register, it just wasn't practical to transition the IDs from the old server -- although the old stuff will be maintained in a "read-only" capacity for some time to come.
So, if you want to "have your say" then register at the new forums using the magic word Aardvarkroxs when asked for it.
Take a moment to introduce yourself to the rest of the Aardvark community and pretty shortly I'll be expanding the number of forums to encompass a number of areas that are regularly discussed on this site.
The contact form is not yet working (got to rejig the CGI scripts) but if anyone wants to email me they can send their communications to editor at this domain or PM me via the forums.
Oh yes, if anyone wants a bit of a plug then the sponsorship space is now up for grabs. Until someone is prepared to offer a donation for the use of this space, I'm happy to offer a free plug to anyone who wants to send me a suitable 150x150 graphic and link.
Sorry, the headlines haven't been updated today
