I am Tyler, or Ty for short. ;)
I'm currently a rising senior at Virginia Tech college down in Blacksburg, Virginia. I'm majoring in Computer Science; summer break came along, so I found it interesting to purchase and tinker with a Raspberry Pi. Many people within my major already have one and have thoroughly enjoyed it. I think it's great that it can be offered at such a cheap price so it can appeal to so many people (like students who are dirt cheap in college ;) )

I'm also a big fan of cars, hence my avatar of me in a DeLorean. You can read about them on my website, http://www.tailfintalk.com. I like programming and cars, so I decided to program this site from scratch.. about cars!

If at first you don't succeed, call it version 1.0

Hi, I'm Chantelle. Just registered to the site this morning from the UK. Had a raspberry pi for a few months now and really just looking into learning as much about it as possible. Using it as a media centre currently but my next plan is to look into checking it out as a Linux mini computer. I like anything to do with technology although not completely educated know bits and bobs :D

I am Mike, and have been using RaspberryPIs since they were available last year...can't believe I actually never registered at the forum here, although I have been using a lot of info from here.

So yeah, let's do this, I am Chukkzy, 37 (god I am old) and my first computer was an Amiga, so I am still coming from the homecomputer generation (back then, before everything was called a 'Peee-Ceee', which always sounds to me like something which an elderly british woman would say lol).

The Pi caught my eye as its a small device, pretty versatile and you can try around with it a lot, you could say it was an instant purchase as I ran off the next day to buy one in a store. So yeah, pretty cool! 8-)

Hello all, bought a raspberry pi recently to remind me of the computers i used when I was younger. Trying to teach myself python so might be asking lots of questions. Also using it to introduce my kids to :D computers. This is my first post on a forum, learning already

Hi all,

New here. Just got my Raspberry Pi B model yesterday and awaiting the power supply (eagerly!) which should be here by week's end. Am intending to install Raspbmc and use it to stream web content.

Well, just thought I'd say hello before leaping in with some questions when I get the Pi powered up. There is a stack of info here already so hopefully I won't be too troublesome or need to ask too many.

Ahoy, dear technological revolutionaries! I'm Misac Tiba also known as Matokage. I was looking for a simple and portable computer based on ARM and that was capable of running Linux and had a low power consumption, well I think I have found the volunteer. I'm going to use it for a kind of portable computer mounted on a rig and self powered by Peltier cells (this last one is very optional) using the wasted body heat. I already got the idea, next step is to buy a Raspberry Pi witch i'm finding challenging since it's import to Brazil is hard and expensive. Wish me luck guys :D

I've been day dreaming about a media server for ages. when I heard about r pi I knew it was just a matter of time. ordered a b model a few weeks ago and have been slowly setting it up with squeeze plug. currently trying to solve a noise issuee

Hi everyone,

i've been using linux for years both at home and at work.

I've played around with linux/unix in pc boxes, routers and other devices, and now I feel curious about raspberry pi.

there's no one I know that has one that complains about it, they have all done great things.

I hope I can also do such things with mine (when I buy it) and share the results with the raspberry community.
It doesn't matter who you are or where you come from, it's only about what you are capable of.

Hi I am a none tech person with a requirement that I think a Raspberry Pi could solve to make my life easier!

Not sure where to actually post such a request, on this site or elsewhere?

I want to be able to use Apple Airprint from my iPad to send pictures directly to a folder on my network. Not bothered what format they come across as, I will use Photoshop later to open and edit them. I will simply select images in the camera roll and print them to the same network folder, think this is called virtual printing?

I am willing to pay for someone to develop this for me and have a small budget of around £250.00 excluding any hardware for this development.

I would also want advice on what Raspberry Pi and WiFi dongle to buy separately to run this solution.

have been using Linux ever since Mandrake 7.2 (back in 2001). Just using it, not getting hands dirty with command line unless there was not other way round it.

Have currently got my RasPi running Rasbian on a 16 gig SD card and with XFCE as the desktop.

Really looking forward to the future desktop hardware acceleration coming soon to Raspian.

Waiting for all the breadboarding bits and pieces along with my Adafruit PiCobbler breakout board to arrive so I can get LEDs flashing etc.

The Adafruit servo driver module has got me really interested:

Hi everyone,

My name's Bruno, I am a software developer.
I plan experimenting Bluetooth connections between the pi and microcontrollers.
As I am very new to raspberry pi (received my model B yesterday), I will certainly have questions ;)

Best regards,

Hi! I'm Bill (William when in trouble or it's the end of the month and you've had enough bills already). From Detroit Metro, a learning technology / instructional design professional, and currently work in the global learning unit of the world's largest hotel company. For a couple of decades (gasp) I've been introducing new technologies to big companies, primarily for training purposes. My current project is to develop and implement an mLearning strategy for my employer. While all the pieces of the strategy are drafted, as a sort of line in the sand to be tested, the biggest bump today is device availability. I'll be sniffing around here and elsewhere to see if Raspberry Pi fits somehow. Otherwise, 1 kid at Univ. of AZ, 1 kid in Baltimore / DC area, big live music fan (anything but country and rap but especially love electronic), and computer geek (duh). Learned to program on Commodore 64, developed first eLearning content in Hypercard, then some DOS thing (crazy), then Toolbook, Authorware, Flash, Captivate, etc. Say hi!

Hello all,

I am Ruchard (toadslinger) in Houston, Texas, US. I am 69.75 and celebrated my 50th year in computer progarmming in the spring of 2012. I currently program pensions for AonHewitt. I have had my B model Pi for about two weeks and I am currently setting up a desktop model for programming with 32Gb memory chip, 22" monitor and 500Gb external disk

I am planning on a Pi to control three sump pumps in my backyard and another with BMC to get a collection of movies to a second TV. I have stumbled upon a second Pi enthusiaist here in Houston and I am betting there are more.
