Helloooo, I'm stevie
I've been dabbling with, scavenging tech, building webstaions and basic sites. I've surrounded by computers since my early teens & i'm now 45 eeek. I have a trusty pi that i sit with for hours on end mostly focusing on media center/desktop/retropie. Curiosity got the better of me and since then i've tested my pi on various projects mostly server based or afore mentioned media centers. I am by far no where near as advanced as anyone here but the pi keeps my sanity in check, such a great device.
After giving myself many small projects over the years including dabbling with mini atx, i was glad to come across the pi project and eventually be able to purchase one of the early boards. I do intend to purchase some upto date boards asap.
Raspbian has brought life my beloved crappy netbook - eee pc 701 8g(modded), also my hp server blade which is like a super pi
I'm here to learn more - i struggle with absorbing info so be patient with me
My pi has done such tasks: web host, streaming - nginx-rtmp-module, modxcms site, wordpress site, retropie, kodi, personal icecast dev host, rasplex, file server....... basically when ever i've needed to learn linux based projects, i've usually used the pi first to have a probe and bump my learning curve & keep costs down. I will eventually replace for current tech then be giving the older one away to a friends boy who is very much getting into all aspects of technology.
Anyway - hi, feel free to chat
