Pi Down !!!!

Over the past week of beaverish actively I’m seen a couple of my Pi’s fail and even after a decent cool down and reboot they have failed to boot properly, loosing all network connectivity.

I’ve eventually tracked the problem down to what looks to be shoddy SD cards. I purchase 4 Kingston 16GB Class 4 cards from Amazon at about ¬£6 a pop and now regretting scrimping on this important part.

With all the compiling and configuration it looks like they are failing one by one, however having purchase a 16GB Extreme Class 10 Sandisk earlier I’ve popped this into one of the Pi’s and its been running like a dream.

Looks like I’m going to need a few more of these Extremes to keep Colossus running
