RaspberryPi


Two days ago I placed my order for a RaspberryPi.  Now the countdown begins.  Currently I’m being told that my delivery will be w/b 30/4/2012.  I’ll update this blog entry with any news.

Looking forward to reigniting my early days of programming.  I know that I can program on my current computer, but there’s something evocative and romantic about programming on a computer that is inspired by the same computers that inspired me.

For those that are interested here is a list of the computers I have done some programming on.

  • Research Machines Z80A
  • Texas Instruments TI99-4A
  • Acorn Electron
  • Commodore 64
  • Commodore Amiga A500 (Still in the loft)
  • BBC Master (Still in the loft)
  • IBM Dual Floppy Laptop
  • Various DOS and Windows based PC
  • Apple MAC Mini
  • Apple MacBook Pro
