Raspberry Pi

Wednesday, October 30th, 2013

I managed to buy my first Raspberry Pi’s in early January – element14 in Canada finally got some stock then.

It’s a great little computer! After a little googling for prototyping boards, I found Dr. Monk’s review Pi prototyping boards, and I bought some. My favourite was the Adafruit one.

Browsing the web – especially media and javascript rich pages – can be painfully slow compared to my main computers… but really, what kind of performance can you expect for $35?

Recently I picked up the new revision of the GertBoard, a Pi camera, and some other goodies.

I’ll be writing more about the Pi in the future.
