Re: Donating to RPF when buying a RPi?

<r>Certainly would or perhaps the RaspberryPi store <URL url="http://www.raspberrypi.com/">http://www.raspberrypi.com/</URL> (which is down for maintenance) could have a 'donate' item along with the stickers; one of which is already on the designated keyboard and one is on the Lego case - beta only ...

Re: New pricing info on the front page (good news!)

Hi Liz ( and Eben) - Enjoy the holiday! Hopefully the rest of the RPF team are also at least getting a bit of a breather.

Thanks for the pricing clarification - I'm just going to have to sit tight...

Cheers

Andy

Re: Lego ISS - on the ISS!

<r>As there seems to be a fair number of Lego fans on here I thought I would post this.  Caught this on Twitter this evening after watching the real ISS pass overhead earlier (too hazy for a decent photo) <br/> <br/> <URL url="http://www.wired.com/geekdad/2...../lego-iss/">http://www.wired.com/geekd...

Re: Lego case project

<t>@eric_baird - I had already included the grill in my Lego concept case (without knowing the part no) - so thought I would upload my current design.  So far built with scavenged parts from various collections of Lego in the loft.  Technics beams come in a good range of lengths and I like the 'dril...
