who knew EMP

I discovered today while taking a picture of my son on the Raspberry Pi2, that the camera and flash generates enough of an EMP to derange the Pi2 electronics!  Subsequently I learned you can turn an old camera into a pretty strong EMP device capable of knocking out the average cell phone!  Wow.

Next, Raspberry Pi boots into tty.  You need to "startx" to get the raspian desktop up (default xwindows manager.)  It is not great on a composite TV (and you need to figure out which composite out is the video line as the iPad cable I had required me to swap red for yellow.)  Sound also is not configured on by default it seems.
