Hope you have a good break, and Santa brings you many Pi related goodies.

Myself? I'm hoping for Kylie Minogue, but I'm not sure she'll fit in my stocking.

Pi related goodies. Hmm. Well the only thing. I asked for on my dads side of the family was a win8 upgrade on my desktop PC which was sorted early a few weeks ago. So I went to my dads today. Had a nice box to unwrap without a clue to what it could be as I didn't ask for anything. Cardboard box, open. HDMI cable, ethernet cable (both pretty long), phone charger and a 512mb raspberry pi. One aunt also have me £15 and some earphones, another an amazon voucher and assorted chocolate goodies. Going to get a powered USB hub for it asap, other than that I think I have everything. Might get a cheap USB keyboard and a WiFi adaptor yet, not sure, see how I get on with my existing keyboard and ethernet bridging.

Certainly very happy with what gifts I received. Asked for very little from anyone really. Told my mum and stepdad that I would like halo 4 and would feel safer with some jump leads in my car. Got both. Asked dad for windows 8 on the desktop. Got that. Seems the best gifts are the ones you don't expect. While we're here. Got a £50 voucher for an experience day, any recommendations. Thinking about seeing how much I have to add to that to drive a tank :P

I got something I never expected, 2 emails from 2 different students at an engineering college in India asking for help with their 3D scanner projects after they'd seen mine on here and YouTube.

How cool is sharing :)
Please feel free to tap into my abundant lack of knowledge.

That's fantastic! Eben and I got a weather station to hook up to a Pi from Eben's brilliant parents. Once we get a camera board and I work out how to reasonably waterproof it, a Pi will be being attached to the bee nest box Eben's auntie got us. (And the existing bird boxes and feeders.)
