Probably a dumb question, but what is the advantage of having so many Raspberry Pi's? I've seen lots of pictures of people that have hooked up one (or more) pi to another, but I haven't been able to find a reason to it.
I have three Pi's all neatly stacked (in identical, but different coloured cases).
One is an HTTP/IMAP/SMTP/FTP/SSH/stuff server, one is an IRC server, and one is my 'development' unit where I test Baked Raspberry Pi Mod and other things (that one gets re-imaged every few days while I'm testing modules and installing/uninstalling packages and things.
I legitimately still want:
One dedicated to being an IP PBX (Asterisk), one being an XBMC media center, and maybe another one or two for various things.
The low power use of these things is incredible, as is the small size, the fact they are totally silent, and because they are so cheap, it is very viable to have one per task (or set of tasks).
Previously I ran a Sempron 3000+ laptop as my 'server' doing everything, and it had fan noise, and used more power than 10x Raspberry Pi's, and if I borked the system, it took down EVERYTHING. (It wasn't able to run virtualisation to suit my needs).
Love the Pi.
