Re: Farnell

After waiting months for the Pi to come out,I cannot purchase one from the Farnell site as I do not have a credit card and my Maestro card is not accepted,the aim of the Pi is to have a cheap computer which is available to all,but only if they have a credit card.

Re: YOU SUCK: the venting thread

All your problems are slight in comparison, think of all my fellow City supporters who shelled out good money having Tevez printed on the back of their shirts.
I will not mention the bitter reds but West Ham also got turned over by his "advisors"

With a usb mouse and usb wireless dongle.I can stream from my HTPC or modded Xboxes to the bedroom TV.
