Raspi sound.

Finally decided to do something with my Raspberry Pi. Made a desktop to put it the den. Normally I use a composite monitor, but I decided to use a VGA monitor with an HDMI to VGA adapter. Unfortunately the adapter did not support sound, so I had to use the standard analog audio adapter.

Well I hooked everything up and everything was working but the sound. Hmmm. The sound worked before. Did a bit of research and found I had to use a utility to change the default sound output.

At that time, the only way to download a binary file was to download a file full of hex data. The hex data ascii file was then converted to the binary file. There was no error checking so that if you have line noise and extraneous...
