'its' should be 'it's' in quite a number of places.


I see:

Its designers were inspired

its graphics are roughly equivalent

it's very usable

It's these things


meeting its educational goals

At its heart

tips its hat

It's straightforward to replace


All of these are spelled correctly.


Apologies - I've just reread it and for the life of me cannot see anything wrong - not sure what I saw last time! All looks correct to me now. Most odd. I blame lack of caffeine.

I think it is not only your servers. They are my email provider and yesterday I could not get my emails for a while

This is an example of a fairly common problem: take some exceptional examples of group A (in this case 'children 30 years ago'), compare them to some notional and usually prejudiced idea of group B (in this case 'children of today'), and conclude that group A is clearly better than group B.

It really saddens me to see how common it is for people to dismiss their children's generation as lazy and stupid, but since it's been the norm for the whole of recorded history, I doubt that's something we can change.

Absolutely agree. As someone pointed out just because his kids 'arent interested' doesn't mean that given the choice they 'wouldn't be interested'.

I am in the A group and remember a friend getting an Atari VCS (2600) in 1980. We used to play space invaders for hours. 1 year later we both had sinclair zx81's and then spent as much time learning programming as playing games. If you put Pi's in kids hands with some guidance there's no reason why even today the same interest cannot develop.

An article liz hasn't caught yet. I feel proud for finding it. Anyway, Raspberry Pi people, congrats on all the press.

This is rather sweet - it's from a lady whom Eben and I met at a friend's birthday dinner a couple of years ago. (I appear to have been totally unmemorable all evening, but old fascinating-pants clearly made an impression!)

The headline on this one started out as "$25 computer to nurture nerdiness from a young age" - fortunately, someone seems to have seen fit to change it!

This one's great - very detailed - and some of your projects from the forums get a mention.

Neat article, does anyone else look at this photo of the alpha board in their article and get a weird feeling that something looks off about it?



Is it just the angle of the shot?

Shame that the commenters seem to think that the device itself is from Seneca, even though the article is pretty clear they are doing some  of the software.

rats, just missed out on a mention with that "make use of" article, must have been hours between it… the cases wiki now includes the printable case, but I only did it early hours of this morning.

Seriously!  I don't know how I haven't seen it before.  For some reason today it looks more square than usual

Yes, probably the angle.  That and the focus.  Given the size of the board the difference in focus between the front & back of the board it too great.
