• Board Down

    From Ogg@21:1/186 to Dan Richter on Saturday, December 28, 2019 14:45:50
    Hi Dan.

    Scott Daniels from Ready Player Two BBS (21:4/103) here. I'm letting you
    know that this afternoon, my Raspberry Pi took a dump. I was getting
    under voltage warnings all morning. After checking both the power supply and powered usb hub, it was apparent that the power circuit was going bad.

    So... I'm down until I can decide on new hardware. Windows vs. Linux vs ??? I'll be making a decision within a couple of weeks and will let you know. Until then, I'm offline.

    That sucks! I've rebuilt plenty Pi's myself.
    They ARE waaaay cheaper than Linux or Windows setups, though :)

    I run Linux on a fanless mini-pc I bought from Amazon. I never really could get things working with DOS doors on an RPi, etc under DOSEMU and
    alternatives. The BBS can just run in the background even if there are few callers or whatever. It's just there for my enjoyment.
