I do think I get my Raspberry Pi

To my complete and utter astonishment, I got my Raspberry Pi today. Not the one ordered at Farnell, but the one ordered at RS Online on 23 May 2012. Very quick. (Okay, for a piece of hardware with these kind of waiting lists) They never sent me an email that it was shipped. Nice surprise though.

Downside: the Farnell one should have shipped with a t-shirt. I like t-shirts... My wife doesn't, at least not the geeky ones.... So we'll just put this up as a draw ;-)

So sometimes, betting on two horses, does work.

glad one came - and I know how you feel - those t-shirts are pretty cool.

my next goal is to get my hands on one of these - http://pi.cs.man.ac.uk/interface.htm [man.ac.uk]

My raspi has yet to arrive

When they (yes, plural, I double order as well) arrive, I sure will try them out with what is being described in the following link:

Yes, assembly language running on raspi !!
