Re: Product Placement?

You're right that the kit stated is pretty obvious. It's a tutorial though. Not a review and not sponsored product placement. The writer uses an Argon M.2 for the setup and it's a fairly unique case (that provides support for M.2 drives). You are, of course, welcome to use other cases and kit and ad...

Re: Software used for stripboard/perfboard diagrams

We typically use Fritzing for our breadboard diagrams and the design team sometimes tweak the files in Adobe Illustrator to clean them up.

I've asked Mike to confirm what he uses to create his original images.

Re: Connect Raspberry Pi 4 to iPad Pro with a USB-C cable

The project needs a USB-C connection because it carries both data and power. While Lightning theoretically does this its a proprietary system and so it won’t work. I don’t know if it works with MacBook Pro and because I don’t have one to test I’m afraid. It should theoretically be possible. I’d be h...

Re: Help us build a robot

The parts are similar to those found in the CamJam Edukit (also a good option). You can read it onli...

Re: Etcher instruction wrong Issue 81

It depends. The fastest route from A -> B to set up a Retro Gaming console is to buy a retro console from a shop and plug it in :-) So the point for Raspberry Pi is to learn computing skills. And we learn by doing. Hence the steps. I am open to the conversation. But it isn't a right/wrong dynamic. T...

I wrote those instructions and went through the process by hand. I prefer recommending newcomers to Etcher as it's easier to follow than other flashing programs.

Re: Getting individual pages from magazines - remix?

PDF Miner is worth looking at as well

https://pypi.org/project/pdfminer/

PDF Miner is a MIT / OSI license. I think it's worth pointing out that InDesign documents aren't open source at all (a personal bugbear of mine) and InDesign isn't a cheap program either.

The InDesign documents don't always contain the final information. And we could update the PDF after it goes on sale, for a variety of reasons (safety, technical, legal etc). We're open to the conversation, but you can extract the text and images from the PDF and they are available under the creativ...

Re: Subscription ended with no reminder

We've fixed this and new subscriptions should automatically renew. (This saves everybody a lot of trouble).

Plus! If you took out an earlier non-renewing subscription you'll get reminders to renew when the issue is finished.

We're currently looking into this. It seems to be a browser-based error and we see it in different browser / computer setups. I can see all the latest issues using Chrome on a Mac, but not Safari.

In the meantime try using a different browser and you should be able to see all the issues.
