Re: Whats the max speed of the SD card slot ?

<r>lol @enthusiasts trying to pimp their raspberries.<br/> <br/> The Pi is £15. You are all talking about read speeds of 20mb/s. That means the sd card is going to be more expensive than the raspberry pi. If you want high speeds then you get an expensive card with high volume - They don't make 2 Gb ...

You got "p'd off" on an anonymous forum for a $25 dollar computer aimed at kids?

Re: Raspberry Pi #1 spotting...

<t>I'm surprised boards #10 and #1 have hovered at £2100. Surely someone would bid £2200? That would be exactly 100 times the cost. <br/> <br/> Still, lots of time to go. I think its going to get feisty before the bidding is over. I found myself checking on them like I would a football score. I don'...

Re: Idea's and Uses

If you run out of Raspberry Pis before I can order one, Mooncake is going to be held responsible.

I happened to order a sticker today. Order #2062. It better not have cat hair all over it.

Re: How much sales do you think will raspi make?

There are lots of threads here now. I haven't read them all. lol.

That is useful to know, thanks. I know its sacrilege but I really think my first Raspi might be a Super Nintendo (emulator). Its meant to be fun right?

Re: Idea's and Uses

<t>Some ideas for (big) kids<br/> <br/> How about a hand held Super Nintendo or Megadrive? For £15 make it an emulator and you can pop it into your pocket, go round your mates house with a few beers, hook it up to the TV and play Streetfighter II and SuperMario Kart until the sun comes up.<br/> <br/...
