Sophi: welcome to the Raspberry Pi Hack Chat! My reminder email just went out, s we're going to start at exactly.... 6 minutes after the hour
Please put all qs and comments here: https://hackaday.io/event/69365-raspberry-pi-chat
Hey all! Excited for the Pi chat!
before we get started, slightly off topic but related. does any know how to control the Undervoltage icon directly? (I want to be able to turn it on.)
like a holy painting?
or is there some context to your question that you forgot to mention? some kind of software maybe?

deshipu the pi displays several status icons, which I understand are driven directly from the GPU. one is undervoltage, monitoring the 5 volt rail

baldengineer says:3:04 PM
all references I find are people asking how to disable it or understand it.
ðeshipu says:3:04 PM
@baldengineer it only displays a text console for me
ted says:3:04 PM
so ironically there's ADC on the board, just not in the pins :)
baldengineer says:3:05 PM
okay, nevermind. i don't want to distract before we start. search "pi lightning icon" to see what I mean

Who here has ordered (even received) their first Pi 3B+? (I received shipping confirmation from Newark Element14 yesterday)
DrivenMadz says:3:05 PM
Packing frantically packing for shoeshoe trip to Mt Rainer :) still got it chromcasted to the TV :) Happy Friday everyone :)
im still looking where to buy a 3B+
Sophi: Happy Friday! :) welcome to the Raspberry Pi Hack Chat w @Roger Thornton
Hello all, good to be here/
Try element14. Good price ($35) unlike CanaKit that is up to $44 + $13 shipping
I'm sure more stragglers will show up soon, but we can get started. Roger- tell us who you are and what you work on at Raspberry Pi
Ummm.. Sophi... so we have to JOIN that other event thing to post questions there?
I am one of the hardware engineers at Raspberry Pi, where I've worked for nearly three years. I am the designer for Pi Zero W and the very recently launched Pi3+
love the pi zero w! great job!
Thanks for being here Roger... So you are based in the Cambridge (UK) offices?
Hello everyone :-)
Yes, I am based (and live) in Cambridge
Cool (p.s. I grew up in Haverhill.. gaaaahhh :-)
hey @Liam Kennedy !
Hi @Sophi Kravitz back!!
Awesome work on the 3+ (I will now always refer to it as 3+ .. and save the extra typing of 3B+)
Thank you, it was a long journey but very happy with end product
how long was the design cycle?
What was the "trickiest" part of the design for you?
