The Raspberry Pi arrived!


I’m very excited to report that my Raspberry Pi arrived yesterday.

I’m blown away by the size of the device. It somehow feels smaller “in the flesh” than I had anticipated.

Anyway, my plan is to hook it up to the TV and use it as a means of accessing the interewebs, in particular catch up TV services such as the BBC iPlayer (which will be much better quality than through the Wii).

I’ve ordered an SD card and have the Debian distribution ready to install. I shall be digging out one of my old micro USB chargers and then firing it all up.

I can’t wait to start playing. Should be a couple of days for the SD card to arrive which will give me enough time to have everything else ready.
