    raspberry Pi CM4 modules

    I have been doing some research, and experimentation with my Pi 4, in an attempt to speed things up without overclocking. What I have is the Canakit Raspberry Pi 4 starter MAX kit, which includes a Samsung 64 GB EVO plus micro sd card which came pre-installed with NOOBS. This is a C10 U3 V30...

    Power out of a windows laptop.

    Dex, You know, I was looking at your problem further, and I decided to try a little experiment. I downloaded the 64 bit version of the pi operating system, and installed it on a spare 30gb 2.5 inch ide drive which I had floating around on my work bench. Then I removed the sim card from my...

    convert mp4 to avi video

    Did you try attaching the video output from your laptop to the video input of the tv? That would accomplish what you wanted, that is to watch the movie on your tv.:) You wouldn't need to do all the software gymnastics either. Happy Trails, Paul

    Does zeroing out a hard drive guarantee total file elimination?

    Yeah, we packed the hay loosely, instead of bailing it. You had to know just how to lay it on the hay rack, to get the most on it. Standing on the top rail of the hay rack, and pitching the hay, over your shoulder, into the loft was a good workout also. It really built up your shoulder...

    Does zeroing out a hard drive guarantee total file elimination?

    Well, since he was about 75 or 80 years old at the time, he had a lot of experience, and he had Belle and June for a long time also. I'm not really sure how old they were, but they were both Magnificent Animals. He also could make blade sections for the horse drawn mower, from scratch, very...

    Does zeroing out a hard drive guarantee total file elimination?

    When I was but a wee lad of 15 or so, I assisted an elderly gentleman in my home town who boarded horses. Bill had a pair of beautiful Belgian mares, Belle and June, which were "gentle Giants" and the perfect team. We used them for mowing, raking, and collecting the hay from the many fields...

    Does zeroing out a hard drive guarantee total file elimination?

    But, but, but, but that only took out the hub area. That is not where the data is. You need a nice tight pattern of about 5 more rounds, just to make sure you really killed it!
