Re: Mailing list broken?

Personally I think more of a case of just sending notifications out of the new articles is enough. I dont want there to be a weekly news letter when half of it is nothing and the other half is liz commenting on her air miles score.

Re: Starting a trend

I hope you are right in it starting a trend, if it does maybe it will impact on other items, such as PC Games. The cheaper PC's get the cheaper the games need to get. Maybe the average game price could bve pushed down to £15 baring in mind you can get a computer, be it very basic, for £15.

Re: Starting a trend

Very little, remember this is a non profit project and gets parts at discount prices as its a charity. I bet the lowest a company could make and sell the R-Pi for and make any profit would be over $100, maybe around $110.
