    Found a home security system with 4 cameras that would probably be better than anything I could cobble together.

    New issue: I'm trying to update the Raspbian image on my RPi. When I download the ZIP file on Windows and attempt to extract it, it says it requires an additional 742 petabytes of space. Obviously, that's not right. When I download it on Linux and extract it with Ark, it's fine. But when I go to move the extracted ISO file to a USB drive (not imaging, just copying), the transfer fails. What gives?

    Use another extractor.
    Try 7-Zip or WinRAR.

    7zip is pretty good despite the horrible interface..

    That or just give it another 800PB of disk space..

    Use https://etcher.io/ to put images on SD cards. It can do it without extracting the zip first, and is as simple to use as it gets.

    Also: https://resin.io/ looks pretty cool for managing a couple of raspberries scattered throughout your house.

    "Here's A Proper Install Of Windows 10 Running On A Raspberry Pi 3"

    I know what you're thinking. It's just the cut-down, IoT version we've been able to play with for years now. Nope -- this is the Windows 10, built for the compact computer's ARM64 architecture. Sure, there's not a lot you can do with it on a Pi, and it's not exactly stable, but it does works.
    "it does works" just about sums this up, since they also go on to mention that it can only use one core of four (plus, it's always maxed) you can't do much of anything with it until it finally chucks an error for missing CPU instructions and dies.

    The take-away from this is it's just a little cool thing one guy did, we're still stuck with Windows 10 IoT Core.

    Raspberry Pi 3B+ released, now with a faster CPU, gigabit Ethernet, and 802.11ac. Still $35.

    I love how they seem to be maintaining compatibility with older cases as much as possible.

    Ethernet speedtests I have seen show ~300mbit throughput. Which is nice.

    HOLY NECRO BATMAN

    So I successfully paired a Pi Zero W with RetroPie and one of these beauties:



    The cabling is still a bit annoying, but now I have a console that plays every game made over the course of two decades that's the size of a pack of gum and works wirelessly with a decent quality controller that has every button.

    My stretch goal project is to put the Pi into a NES cartridge shaped case and replace the label with an eink HAT that will show the box art for whatever game is being/was last played.

    That is a really good idea. EInk is black/white only , but still. Do it.

    They have displays with black, white, and one other color now, usually red or yellow (https://www.adafruit.com/product/4143). One problem I ran into during a first playtest with friends though, is that there's an unacceptable level of input lag, at least with the wireless controller. Gonna have to do some more testing.

    The Bluetooth layer adds 15-20ms of lag by itself. 8bitdo has started offering some controllers that use straight 2.4ghz for things like the SNES Classic but I don't think any support USB.

    There are some settings you can tweak on the pi to reduce lag as well as making sure your TV is set to low-latency or "Game Mode" if it has one.

    Yeah the TV was def. in game mode, I'll have to work some of those other settings too and see if that gets it close enough.

    Nice, could now be used as a NAS with the Ethernet port no longer sharing bandwidth with the USB ports.

    I predicted some time ago that the Model 4 would include USB 3.0 and more RAM, but this announcement exceeds all my expectations.

    Is it too bold to suggest that the 4GB model could be used for a rudimentary form of VR?

    People were already using it as a NAS when it first came out. This just makes it an even better option.

    Indeed, but now without the major bottleneck that was the USB bus.

    This. Using a rPi as a NAS was really underwhelming. Good learning experience, however. Bad learning experience due to the ARM architecture though
