    @STR_EDDS:
    "Old is Gold", so is your house.
    Thanks for the tutorial link. I will go through it shortly.
    I have already installed PuTTy on my windows desktop, and could successfully access RPi from my Desktop over SSH.
    However, the PuTTY showed only console, needing commands to be typed.
    I hate typing commands in console...... sudo apt-get install mkdir eek eeek eeeeeek .
    I love windows "point & click".
    Is there a way to run GUI (Graphic User Interface) from SSH? I also installed Cygwin, but that also gives command line console.

    To make things more easy you can just cut & past command lines into PuTTY. Just highlight and copy the command in windows, put your pointer in the terminal window and right click and it will appear. It can save time with long command lines and passwords and it's more accurate too.

    As a test try the command ifconfig and you should see the network interface config.

    Thank you for the very helpful tip. It will make using console commands less unpleasant.
    Although I have been occasionally using Linux since late 1990's, but always hated it's console & commands.

    And the best thing with Linux console (well, in my opinion) is using the ARROW UP key to repeat/list previous commands you typed.

    And to see if your feeder is doing what it should (when using the older builds and the Beta one):
    tail -f /tmp/fr24feed.log

    Thanks for the useful tip. Will try it when I setup FR24 feeder on my Pi.

    I wanted to try console commands, so I tried several commands and all went well, till I ran command sudo rm -rf /* and Pi crashed and refused to re-boot, and I had to reinstall Raspbian!!!!

    Well, under windows it's impossible to run "format C:", but under linux "sudo rm -rf" can do a lot of harm.
