Re: Don't forget that Valentine's day is nearly upon us

I thought the Pi-oneer spirit would be to make them

That's what I'm planning to do anyway!

By make them, I mean the cards not the recipient; though again that could be something people are planning

Re: will pre-done card images be available?

I believe I'm correct in posting that the first batch will be released before the pre-done cards are available

so you'll have to download the images and write the images to SD

(hope that's correct!)

Re: Introduce yourself!

Hello Pi-ers (if that's a word!)

I'm a PhD student living in London. I have no real experience of anything like the Pi but I've always wanted to learn and have something to tinker with. Can't get my hand on one to start learning!

best wishes,

Simon
