MagPi Wrapper

Hi, does anyone know what the package that the MagPi comes in??

Is it compostable?? Recycling it tricky as we need to know the exact type, than you have to match it up with your local facilities.
It seems such a shame to send it to landfill.

Does anyone know???

Re: MagPi index

Hi, I think a searchable index is really needed.

You know that you have seen something, but not a clue where.

Could it not be put together when MagPi is produced??

Lets hope so!!!!

Re: Power Switch

Thanks Scruss, I'll see what anybody else says, before I start purchasing.
I think I prefer the look of Tony's one the best.

Soldering with only left arm.

Hi everyone, I have been run down by a transit van while on my bicycle.
This caused me to have no feeling or movement in my right hand.

The question is, has anyone mastered soldering with 1 arm/hand??

Pi's are topps!!!!
