Hi, Thanks for the message. I'll try and take a look and see if there is anything I can do to help out. Quick question which comes to me me straight away, who are elinux.org? Do you know what the rational was with having the RasPi wiki as part of theirs and not it's own entity? I'm just feeling at the moment that RasPi is going to be a bigger subject than Linux, if that makes sense? --AdRiley 20:28, 27 January 2012 (UTC)
- Thanks for coming over. elinux.org are an existing wiki documenting the usage of Linux on embedded systems, and according to the Raspberry Pi Foundation this generously agreed to host the RPi wiki. I imagine it would be possible to export it at a later date, and I'm sure there are plenty of people out there who would volunteer server space. Tufty 20:34, 27 January 2012 (UTC)

- Hi, just to let you know that there's a big overlap between the RPi_Buying_Guide and RPi_Hardware_Basic_Setup. I'm merging your work from the Buying Guide into the Hardware page - please could you make further changes on the Hardware list. Thanks - Tufty
- Sorry to be abrupt there - thanks for contributing to the wiki! I see you've noticed my message, so I'll leave you to add the SD card details to the Hardware page - Tufty
I have no idea how to send you a PM on this wiki. Apologies for putting text in the wrong place, but this wiki is all over the place. My knuckles have been rapped, and I have moved to the correct page. bredman.
- I know what you mean - I've been working seriously hard just to get it to this state. I've got rid of four whole pages so far, and created that links template at the bottom of every page, and still it's a mess. Hence my running in and stopping you - how else would you find the right place to edit? - Tufty
Lucky you were watching when I started to edit. Keep up the guard.
I was thinking of adding images for all of the connectors. What do you think? A lot of people do not know what a micro-USB looks like.
- Images of the connectors sounds like a very good idea - Tufty
Images are added for the connectors. I am out of here, this took longer than I planned.

hopefully this is the correct place for this! I was reading through your advanced hardware setup page for the RPi and wanted to help with the serial setup info if possible
I have purchased 2 of these from amazon [] Which apparently have turned up today. I have a twofold reason as I am debugging a problem with a synology box at the same time. Hopefully they will be a cheap way of everybody accessing the console via USB port as COM ports are thin on the ground these days especially in laptops. Once I have a board and a header soldered to it I will confirm all settings and positions etc. Can you confirm the source of the baud rate quoted, seems quite high for a default baud rate?
Eagerly awaiting release.
- Hi, sounds like a plan. I'm not responsible for adding that particular piece of information - I transferred that page to a new one with a more sensible name. There's a few mentions on the Raspberry Pi Foundation Forum about 115200, might provide some clues - Tufty 17:00 01/02/2012 (UTC)
Yes i found some comments from gert about 115K so hopefully that is gospel! Will update when i have something concrete Wayne
