    Anyone else have one of these great little machines?

    $35 for an arm linux machine that outputs 1080p video, and it is great fun to just develop for and use for projects.

    I got mine in the other day, and it is running Arch on it.

    So, what do you do with yours?

    Yeah I've got a Pi. It's sitting in the cupboard waiting for me to figure out what I want to do with it, that I can't do on my other computers anyway.

    Now what was it isn't it, and what is it is weird and scary to me.
    It'll happen to you too."

    I plan on using mine to write and test arm code on, and also maybe as a portable media player since I have it on WiFi. I can just plug and play on my tv with hdmi.

    Mine was a gift from my boss, a pi, raspian on a 16GB SD card and a case. Thanks to the case, I do know that it will be called Orac when I finally hook it up to the network. It looks remarkably similar to Oracs activation key

    Hello Orac

    All my machines are named after sci-fi computers / robots / cyborgs etc,

    Mine has a black case with a raspberry on the front, lol. It is running Arch on a 32GB MicroSD (with an adapter).

    Haven't fully decided what to call it yet though.
