Re: Growing Forum needs?

Okay this wordpress plugin allows you to export users to a csv

And this phpbb addon lets you take a csv and create user accounts

I'll see what I can find about exporting threads and re-importing them into phpbb ;)

Re: Integration of the PI into schools

<r>I find it interesting that everyone equates the learning value of the r-pi to learning to program. Now the r-pi is DEFINITELY a powerful tool in regards to programming. And I would also say that encouraging the next generation to learn programming is part of the official goal of the r-pi team (in...

I have to admit, aside from language I'd find it hard to imagine even a PG-13 slogan involving r-pi. Not that I'm challenging anyone to try and make one :P

So I know it was a joke, but so far we've talked about an umbrella here and some t-shirts over on the "What have we Missed" thread. Are the any ideas for some Merchandise being released sometime soon (perhaps even before the r-pi is released)? Maybe once a logo is decided on.... ;)
