Just received my Raspberry Pi Kit!

Picked up this basic kit from Amazon – has a clear case, Raspberry pi B (512MB) and a usb power supply.

Check out the shipping – it’s just a padded mailer on the bottom of the pic. And it came with these 3 small boxes inside :P. When I looked at the mail I wasn’t sure if it was a paperback I ordered, or if it was the tiny linux computer.

OK, off to build this thing, just need to find a spare 4GB SD card laying around and burn an image to it on my Win7 box. More later

20130805-221501.jpgdidn’t like booting without the USB keyboard plugged in, so pulled out the power cord and rebooted after plugging in the keyboard.

Much better now

i plugged it into an ancient CRT maganvox, 11″ and pulled up the blog, with absolutely no configuration needed
