I already have some plans drawn up just need a few items.

moggiedon to put mooncake the raspberry pi watch cat to sleep & 10 gallons of margarita's to put Liz to sleep. We can handle Eben by giving him several boxes of components and telling him to go and build something for a few hours while we load the truck.

I can imagine the Plod the day after the raid scouring the country for cafés and truck stops with Raspberry Pie on the menu.

I should probably point out that the Raspis are no longer in that garage, just to save Jack's alarm system some work!

I was looking forward to waking up to John Humphrys telling the Nation that some miscreant had swiped ALL the Raspberry Pis in existence, with an insert from Rory Cellan-Jones saying how significant this was......

Hi Simon - just replied to you there. Don't worry; it's not a production board, so your 5.30 start was not for nothing. It's one of the qualification testing boards.

Thanks Liz, Farnell has jumped the gun a though after all the talk about getting CE approval etc. I would have settled for a qualification board a bit insensitive to send them out even though they are giveaways.

I swore I wasn't going to follow this any more to keep my blood pressure down but I am inexplicably drawn to your home page, it was easier giving up smoking Can I get a patch from my doctor?

Or maybe those Raspberry Pi acid tab stickers I read about stuck to my forearm will do the trick

I think a scathingly brilliant idea would be for every single R-Pi recipient to post a photo of their shiny new board sitting on the front page of the receipt-day"s issue for the most local newspaper at the recipient"s location, and the post should be copied to a single topic thread in /. Oh, and to really rub it in, the board should be booted and have the photo displayed on the screen, infinite regression style.

Is it possible to +10,000 without blowing up their servers? I hope not!
The best things in life aren't things ... but, a Pi comes pretty darned close! :D
