One lovely blog award – who are my favourite bloggers?

This challenge has spread across the internet like fire (I didn’t create this challenge) so I have decided to do one. Basically, I have to tell you 7 things about my character. And up to 15 bloggers I enjoy. I have over 40 followers, but as there are limits (a few don’t have blogs) and you can only do up to 15. I am sorry if I do not include you!

So, here are the 7 things about me!

1. I think about my web browser project, ECG SeaSurf , for a lot of my time. I love it because the world wide web is a big place, and making software that allows people to browse such a great thing makes me feel special.

2. I do not try to block the spotlight from other developers as I love seeing what others have produced too, and I love getting inspired.

3. I love playing video games because they are extremely fun, and it feels like I am in the game (no VR here!). They also take stress away.

4. I love writing stories, to entertain people. I am writing a story called Sir Wolf’s Castle, about Minecraft wolves and a villan called Sir Bum-Smacker.

5. I love looking at over blogs and leaving feedback and liking posts because I don’t want to look selfish.

6. I love ketchup. It is an awesome sauce.

7. There are lots of other things I love but don’t blog about: Star Wars and Legends of Chima, for example.

Now, here are my favourite bloggers: I DO NOT ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY FOR LINK CONTENT CHANGING

Updating from Raspbian Wheezy to Raspbian Jessie

WARNING: Upgrading to jessie using this method is not supported and could be at your own risk. Please backup your SD Card before starting!

First, open up the terminal and check you have the latest Raspbian Wheezy:

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Then type:

sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list and change wheezy to jessie so It reads:

deb http://mirrordirector.raspbian.org/raspbian/ jessie main contrib non-free rpi
# Uncomment line below then ‘apt-get update’ to enable ‘apt-get source’
#deb-src http://archive.raspbian.org/raspbian/ jessie main contrib non-free rpi

Save and then type:

sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list.d/raspi.list

Change wheezy to jessie and add ui to the end so that it reads:

deb http://archive.raspberrypi.org/debian/ jessie main ui
# Uncomment line below then ‘apt-get update’ to enable ‘apt-get source’
#deb-src http://archive.raspberrypi.org/debian/ jessie main ui

Save and then type:

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

sudo rpi-update

WARNING: Depending on your internet speed and space left on your SD Card this could take a long time!

Finally, type:

sudo reboot

Once your Pi has rebooted, type into the terminal:

cat /etc/os-release

You should see the following:

PRETTY_NAME=”Raspbian GNU/Linux 8 (jessie)”
NAME=”Raspbian GNU/Linux”
VERSION_ID=”8″
VERSION=”8 (jessie)”
ID=raspbian
ID_LIKE=debian
HOME_URL=”http://www.raspbian.org/”
SUPPORT_URL=”http://www.raspbian.org/RaspbianForums”
BUG_REPORT_URL=”http://www.raspbian.org/RaspbianBugs”

If you do, then you have successfully upgraded your system to Raspbian Jessie!

If you still see wheezy instead of jessie then you may not of upgraded properly! Repeat the process.

If you are having problems, please comment on this post!

How to update Raspbian to it’s latest version

sudorpi-update

There are a few ways to upgrade Raspbian to the latest version.

1. If using NOOBS then press SHIFT on your RPi’s keyboard when your RPi boots up and the screen saying Press SHIFT for recovery mode and reinstall Raspbian. However, this wipes all files off your Raspberry Pi’s SD Card.

2. If not using NOOBS then use a normal PC to write a new Raspbian image to the SD Card. Then plug the SD Card into the RPi and then boot the RPi up. This wipes all files off your Raspberry Pi’s SD Card as well.

3. However, there is another way to update Raspbian to the latest version. Also this one does not wipe your Raspberry Pi’s SD Card’s files.

To update Raspbian using this way, open up the Terminal and type the following:

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get -y upgrade

sudo rpi-update

Sometimes you may need to install other software as well. For example, Raspbian Kernel Version 4.4 required the following extra commands to be typed into the Terminal:

sudo apt-get install piclone geany usb-modeswitch pi-bluetooth

sudo apt-get install python-pigpio python3-pigpio

Even better, this method to upgrade Raspbian to the latest version doesn’t wipe any data off of the Pi’s SD Card.

Enjoy!
