Re: Farnell assembled board

I have found the feet now thanks. I won't, however, insert them yet until I have finalised my layout.

The board itself, like the Pi, is great value for money IMHO.

Re: Farnell assembled board

Gertboard arrived (23 Jan 2013) It is the readybuilt board from Farnell. I was suprised to see that it had a female ribbon connector on the underside instead of connector pins on the top.

The Pi got a mention and some praise on The Gadgetshow as a christmas-stocking-filler last night.

Daffodil case.

As we are to have Welsh Raspberry Pis, Why not a Daffodil case. I modified a case from a Daffodil WMS335B wireless mouse I bought from Amazon, carving out the openings with a soldering iron then trimmed with a hand file. See: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Daffodil-WMS335B-Wireless-Optical-2-4GHz/dp/B0055Q...

Re: Cow Pi



Well, my CowPi is cooking on gas. It may need a few modifications to pass the CE emissions test though.

Re: Cow Pi

Just thought that I would cook something up as my first project whilst waiting for the Raspberry Pi to arrive.



So, here it is, my Cow Pi.

I think that I will use it as my Avatar when the site allows me to do so.
