Re: Raspberry pi-esqe. The new breed of computers

I definately see a use for this. One thing the Pi won't be good for is DRM protected content, not being able to use Hulu+ and Netflix certainly limits the Pi's usefulness as a media streaming device. The VIA APC will work fine for that and free up my Pi for other uses. And cost should be darn close ...

Re: Help name my brother's new kittens (kitten picture inside!)

<t>They"d better be given names STAT! It"d be a real CATastrophe if they didn"t. Perhaps you should use the kitten name CATalogue. Have you given them their mittens and pie yet?<br/> <br/> I agree about the importance of them being named quickly. After much begging and pleading from the wife and kid...
