Raspberry Pi School Presentation

A bit random, but I thought it was worth posting...though I am not sure here is the right place... So there I am, the night before my speaking and listening English assessment for my GCSE. My topic of "Positive and Negative Aspects of Social Networking" is just not interesting me at all. The fact th...

Re: Raspberry Pi Packaging?

I think that they should be distributed by a Raspberry Pi automated Zeplin, which flies over your house and releases your order with a small parachute, allowing it to float gracefully onto your doorstep.

Re: Cases for the Raspberry Pi

I was thinking that just having it bobbing around in a fish tank would be pretty cool, hopefully it will sort of half float half sink (the usb/power etc) cables could help control this floatationness.

I'd just have to find a non-conductive transparent liquid that's the right density

Re: Will you get the A or B? Why?

B - because of the RAM primarily, the Ethernet is just a little bonus for me.

In the future I think  RAM would be one of the best things to upgrade, a 1gb model would certainly appeal to me

Re: Quick Question: Model B 2x usb ports?

Hey, I was reading through the Wiki and saw

"


Optional integrated 2-port USB hub and 10/100 Ethernet controller (Model B)"

Is this the case or miscommunication?
I couldn't find it in the FAQ's, so I'd assume not (no issue to me anyhow)
