Re: Ebay listings

the good new is that there shouldnt be ANY ebay fees due to 100% going to charity. not sure about paypal tho. and £16000 should pay for around 1000 to be given away due to no vat cost as its a gift. may be 600-700 with a 16gb class 10 sd card and key board and mice inc

Re: Greatest game of all time

Might and magic 7 with out a doubt.

The best rpg ever, played it every day for hours at a
time, still had quests and things to do, didn’t get board ever. Great story
line, good graphics for its time and in my view everyone should play it.

When you get them from the manufacture will they be individually boxed and have a case as I can see capacitors and other components easily getting damage during packagi...

Re: Cheep Case Ideas

<t>I’ve been looking through the current information and it appears there isn’t a case or outer shell for the raspberry pi.
