Cross posted on the Warrington thread.
I'm based at Ellesmere Port, so just down the road on the grand scheme of things. Have VNC / SSH set up and Raspbmc on another card.
Plans are currently:
Monitoring home network and NAS units such as alarms when disk space runs low.
Media system obviously
Re-learning Linux after several years off.
Learn Python and start kids on Scratch in due course
Transcoding backed up DVDs to correct format for raspbmc
Try to get GPIO working and have the machine talking to the real world, but not sure what yet.
When camera is released, play with that.... security cam/webcam as first step, maybe something else depending on what software tools are available.
That, I think is it for now.
