My name is Bruno Russo. Originally from Chicago, IL., now with my wife of 44 years in a small town called Kingman AZ USA, about 2 hours from LasVegas, NV.
I'm a retired Motorola Process Engineer. I left Motorola in 2000 after 27 years and helped my sister set up her incometax business. All my children, 3, are on their own with their own families.
I've been involved with computers since the 70's. I built a version of the Motorola MC6809 RadioShack Color computer designed by Andrew Veronis of Reston College Virginia from a kit. I've worked with most computers and OS's, from Atari to Zilog. All versions of Microsoft too, from MS-Dos to system-8. Other hobbies like fishing, boating, motorcycles, RC airplanes, music when I get beyond the honey do's.
Newegg.com was offering one of these Pi's with free shipping for under $60 US so I decided I'd like to see how it works. Appreciate the forum and website as it will be my reference for getting started.
Probably won't post again 'till I receive my Pi in a week or so.
I've got more time than money,.......... I hope.
