I have to say how much I enjoyed reading your magazine. I had a realization and sort of a flashback the other night. Back when I was a teenager in the early 1980s I got started with an Atari800. We didn't have internet back then, but we did have magazines. I had to order my Atari and wait weeks for it to come in. I had read every magazine I could find at the time from cover to cover just waiting for it to arrive. When it arrived, the magic began and I found myself typing in program listings for games, ultilties, you name it. It was hands on learning. No cut and paste either. You read every line and had to process it through your brain at least once to type it back in. For years I have lamented how my children will never experience this feeling, especially when something you typed in comes to life. Well imagine my surprise when I started reading MagPi. There are program listings and explanations of projects just like when I was a teenager. Like the topic states this was a real blast from the past. I picked up my new RPi this weekend and have been in love. I have linux laptops and desktops, and have been programming since back when I picked up my Atari, and this seems to have captured the same magic as my old Atari. It really hit home when I realized this I was sitting at my TV with a computer hooked to it. It has been since I was a teenager that I have sat in front of a TV to type programs into a computer. Now if I could just get a cassette tape drive to store the programs.
Thanks to everyone at MagPi, and RaspberryPi. I am loving this.
