Folks, you know those things you share with me privately about the shit that’s going on in the industry and in the orgs that are supposed to be fighting for our rights… can you please start sharing them publicly too? I appreciate the info but we need more than me speaking out.

Does the problem of corrupt sd cards in raspberry pi's also apply to usb drives? I'm thinking about booting the pi from a usb drive, but am not sure whether this will make a difference.

OK everybody, we have just 2 days to raise $17k. We have no marketing or campaigns staff @conservancy so we count on you to spread the word. Please help!!

This is what I use to listen to music every single day, it's light, resistant, repairable, standard, carries 64GB of music and will play music for nearly 100 hours.

I paid 16$ for it.

@nx I saw your Ark device/project and was wondering whether you've considered an e-ink display.

Would that be possible?

I've not yet seen a way to use an e-ink display as a "primary" display, showing e.g. the desktop, or terminal.

It's always a "secondary" display to be colored in with python or c. (See e.g. waveshare.com/7.5inch-e-Paper-)

I'm thinking about a simple raspberry pi project where the lack of speed of an e-ink display isn't a concern. Is it possible?
