The Pi is Here!

Ever since I heard about the Raspberry Pi, I wanted one. The possibilities are endless. A completely portable server, a full fledged media center, a smart thermostat project, home automation console… The list goes on and on. I registered interest as soon as the project started shipping with both RS Farnell and Allied Electronics. Eventually, after a long wait, RS sent me the invitation to order one. I ordered one and was told it would ship in 5 weeks. Well, what do you know, 5 weeks got over and it was shipped. It reached in a record 3 days from UK to US and yesterday I had a blast unboxing it, loading the OS onto the loader and connecting to the TV. Here are the unboxing pictures:

The Raspberry and I are going places :)
