For remote access to my Pi I've used SSH. I keep seeing tutorials showing the use VNC.  What are the advantages of VNC over SSH since SSH is available by default in Raspbian.

NOTE: Usually I am connecting the computer to the Pi on the same LAN or even using a direct connected Ethernet cable (crossover)

Don't just use VNC ....run it through SSH....that's an awesome remote desktop solution over a secure tunnel

From the screen capture this looks like it's on an Android device.
Which SSH client are you using?

If your SSH app supports X forwarding and it is enabled then try startlxde rather than startx

This works from putty with Xming on a Windows machine.

Trying something new here. Mailbag video. 6 Pi products people have given/sent in. I give a short overview of each and you guys get to decide which one gets more in-depth coverage. One of them is the new wifi dongle, but there's 5 others to choose from as well. The article is here...

One of my friends tells me that device tree / hwclock still does not work for the PCF8563 RTC.

Does anyone have hwclock working with the latest Raspbian with a PCF8563?

It has not worked for me for some months, pretty much coinciding with the implementation of the new device tree. I cobbled togeather some Python code to read it (which I can't find right now) but it would be really nice to get hwclock working again.

Greg and I are both using my Pi Rtc Dio board.

Ok, I have finished getrtc.py and setrtc.py which get/set the system date/time to/from the RTC.

I'll upload them to my product page once I'm satisfied with my tests.

Okay so for cross-compiling, I'm assuming for almost every project I would start as this recommends https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/linux/kernel/building.md however just tell it to build whatever I want instead of the kernel?

I have a system based on RPI which I will give to schools
The system perform various actions like reading sensors and all data is sent to my server using REDIS.
There I store/log/plot
I'd like to implement now some security layer on REDIS
Currently the RPI feed and read to my REDIS server via python library directly, and I also set and read keys via web UI system (webd.is)
What I need is a way to give some token or password to each RPI so I can revoke it if required
What is the best method?
On REDIS server level? Webd.is?

The  Animatronic dinosaurs at this amusement park in China now use the Raspberry Pi as their brains!

https://www.raspberrypi.org/blackgang-chine-dinosaur-update/
You know that thing about dinosaurs having brains the size of walnuts? These dinosaurs have brains precisely the size of a Raspberry Pi. The Blackgang Chine amusement park animatronic dinos have come a long way since we saw them last. Here’s Dr Lucy Rogers to talk us through what’s new – and what’s coming next.
