How many Pi's do you own?

Thu Nov 14, 2013 12:54 am

I, myself own 3; one for email, another for a web server, and just got my third one today to be used for a NAS/general purpose usage.

Couldn't the email/web server's be on the same pi?

I did own 2. But my gave it to my brother. Down to 1. But I am already missing the 2nd.

3... soon to be 4...

1 Model 2.0... 256 MB
2 Model 2.0 512MB.

The 256MB Pi does various network functions and services, and acts as a remote control for my server so I can power on/off the my media server via web site interface on-demand. The 1 Model 2.0 512 MB Pi device is used for home automation tasks, and other for various prototyping projects... and to drive my Dachshund crazy, when I do things with a Pi that flash, make noise and/or move!

I have 1 more on order, that will run some variant of XBMC... DLNA/UPNP enable my older flat screen that lacks on-board media client functions.

I'd have to check, but it's over 10...

Two of them are on "permanent duty". One is our alarm clock. Another is a "test and development" system. When I run registration at DunDraCon (shameless plug....see http://www.dundracon.com), I use up to 6 as input stations, one as my "in room" alarm clock, and one at the Info Desk to display the convention twitter feed. Any others are spares in case one fails and has to be swapped out. During the rest of the year, I take some with me to the Silicon Valley Jam (the next Jam is this Saturday) and I've done setups at my grandson's school to introduce kids (and parents) to the Pi. I also bought one as a gift for my grandson's cousins.

See sig. Trev.
Still running Raspbian Jessie or Stretch on some older Pi's (an A, B1, B2, B+, P2B, 3xP0, P0W, 2xP3A+, P3B+, P3B, B+, A+ and a B2) but Buster on the P4B's. See: https://www.cpmspectrepi.uk/raspberry_pi/raspiidx.htm

A trio of Pi's
One for Rasbmc
One as an email server: dovecot, amavis, spamassassin & clamav
one for messing around and trying to learn more about linux

I've got 3.
2 of the original 256mb model B's and a 512mb model B.
Really I only needed 2, but after having an issue with one of the originals I ordered a new one only to find a fix about a week after it arrived.
Current purpose is one for raspbmc, one for tinkering and the other is a spare or project one.

Not sure how to answer:
Working ones? 2 x B2
Broken ones? 1 x B1
Modified past the point of no return? 2 x B1
Modified not quite past the point of no return? 1x A which used to be a B1

I could have placed both the on same pi, just didn't want to place additional loads on it to make sure the email server had plenty of resources to run smoothly.

Just 8 Rasberry Pis at the moment as I gave one of mine away as a present (already setup with Raspbmc).

Most of them have a specific use

Proxy
XBMC x2
Kids programming platform x2 (though only one child is really old enough to be using it at the moment - hoping to start with the younger one soon)
Robot
Bee box (not used much but sometimes take it to show at Raspberry Jam - also used for my Halloween haunted house)
+ one to play with / keep learning myself

Once a week I pull them all out of their usual jobs and take them to Code Club where I'm teaching Scratch to primary school kids, although hopefully Scratch will be installed on the school computers as it's a pain having to unplug them at home and have to connect them up in the school.

Each has at least 2 SD cards so it's easy to swap them between their usual mode and Code Club.

1 as home heating server, 1 as community hall heating server (I still think I 'own' it), 1 for dev (currently providing the star for a Christmas Tree in a display!) and 1 in a box with my name on it as a Christmas pressie (it's got garage door controller / oil level monitor written all over it ;) )

One at the moment, but I intend to buy two more when funds allow. I currently use one as an OpenELEC media centre that the wife and I use in the bedroom. I want another for a media centre in the lounge for the whole family and I want a third as proxy/mail server/firewall.

Seeing as it's over two years since the last post in this thread I thought it might be interesting to try and reactivate it in the light of new models and the increasing popularity of the Raspberry Pi platform.

So, in March 2016, how many Raspberry Pis do you own? I'm just awaiting delivery of my second Raspberry Pi 3 and have a feeling it won't be the last. ;)

Erm... 16?

1 x 3B currently being used experimentally to play with Bluetooth and logging passers-by with active BT devices. (the electronic equivalent of curtain-twitching)
2 x 2B - one is my 'PC' and development unit
2 x Zeros - both 'between projects'
6 x B+ 1 x Telescope camera , 2 x NAS / Kodi media players, 1 x general project unit, 2 x spare
2 x B (512) 1 x 'travel pi' , 1 general project unit
1 x B (256) powers a homebuilt internet radio driving a HD44780 4 x 20 LCD
1 x A+ Runs the central heating
1 x A (256) Basically came free with an ebay pi-camera

I've lost count. Over 10 Pi1Bs, over 10 Pi2Bs (I had 10 of them at DunDraCon this year and I know that wasn't all of them), at least 4 B+. At least 2 A+, 2 Pi3B, so far, with another awaiting shipment. 1 CM. I'll get at least 2 Pi3A and at least one CM3 when those come out. Plus various other bits a pieces of Pi-related hardware.

Edit to add...3 Pi Zeros.

I got my first Raspberry Pi 2 for light control more than a year ago. Now the count is:

2 RPi 2 (theater + backup)
2 PiZero (RetroPi + upcoming squeezeplayer for the kitchen)
1 RPi 3 (will be my first portable unit. Already ordered a Smarti Pi cover and 7" display for it.)

The RPi's also double as test benches for Miscap, DiscoCap and DiscoHAT. I have about 50 each of these add-on boards (minus the boards I have sent to people interested in them).

Two of RPi 2 and two of RPi 3 and they all work just great ,
beyond my expectations.!!
So what's all this RPi stuff anyhow? Well folks, it's a feat of engineering from
the UK almost as remarkable as the De Havilland Mosquito and the Colossus.

... own five, two on the way... I hope; yes, they're twins... 3B one from Element14 the other from MCM. Apparently there was more of a demand for these little jewels than was previously expected... I'm noticing that 3B boards are selling for $56-$75 dollars on the open Internet.
