Any way I can reset the clock settings back to default ?
edit the config.txt via ssh

or install a bigger heatsink and overclock it further

the magPi pdf mags are a free download from the foundations website. maybe do a search amongst the site for beginners guides

my 4 step guide for you

use 'sdformatter' to blow away the sd card
use 'win32diskimager' to write the image. make sure you get the right image for the zero
plug in keyboard and moniter
plug in PSU

what do you want to install?

maybe try noobs first?
https://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/noobs/

gives you a few options and there is a video guide on that page too

Has anyone tried Alexa-Pi (or any other variations for making an Amazon Echo with a RPi)?

I am trying to find a useful use for my RPi B (1st gen)...

I have a RPi 3 and it runs OctoPrint for my 3D Printer. I also have a RPi Zero W but I haven't decided 100% what I'll use it for, though I am considering building a Portable MAME device with it...

Anyone recommend a VPN package for my first gen Pi? Need to access a machine at home from my office. Looking for something simple to set up (for an idiot like me) and maintenance free.

Assuming you're running Raspbian, should have most of the packages for this: https://github.com/jlund/streisand

Otherwise just google 'openvpn install script', vet it then hit go.

Sweet, ta, will look into it. My Pi has been sitting in a box for a few years, time to break it out and give it something to do again (was XBMC for a while).

sorry if this has been covered but short searchwords aren't getting me anywhere in this thread.

My pi3 and powersupply have arrived, but I need to grab a microSD card for it tomorrow.

the samsung EVO 16 gig card can be had cheap locally but internet chatter says they tend to "wear out" fairly quickly.

If so what is a good card to go with? looks like speed isn't an issue.

also will 16 gig be plenty of space once 6 gig is taken up with freeware game ROMs?

looking forward to having another go with this thing, borrowed one from a make and had retropi installed pretty quick and easily then.

if the card is just for a retroPi box than any old card should last a fair time. A bigger card would spread the writes and give you a longer life in theory.

Pi3 can be made to boot from a USB port if you want. drop multiboot with everything onto a old 120g ssd ....
