Raspberry Pi Update
Yes indeed, that package was a Raspberry Pi 🙂 Now all I have to do is use some of my copious spare time to have a play with it 😉
I just got an email that seems to suggest that I may have one on the way via DHL Express 🙂 YAY!
I have been having some fun lately playing around with my old Nabaztag rabbit. A little while ago I managed to get the compiler for the little VM running in the Nabaztag working under Mac OS X.
