Re: Pi compatible WIfi adaptor

I have a no name nano wireless adapter that apparently uses Realtek RTL8192cu drivers. I'll see if I can try to get it working when I get my Raspberry Pi hopefully this week or sooner.

Re: Merchandise ideas

One of those thin, soft feel t shirts with the Raspberry pi logo would be awesome. I don't know the specific material blend but I think it might be 50% polyester, 37% cotton, and 13% rayon.

I had a broken portable dvd player which I replaced the screen with a bigger but same brand screen that I got from my dad, and it works perfect. The portable dvd player I have can take composite video input.
