The keyboard's gorgeous isn't it? I Robert if they sell them separately...

I've read reviews of it before and the big selling point is the book which is supposed to be great.

I have a Raspberry Pi which I have never even taken out of the box and, let's face it, I'm never going to. Does anyone want it? If so, let me know and I'll whack it in the post.

I want one of the new ones that were announced yesterday. I have two of the original ones and have lots of ideas of things I'd like to do with them but never have the time. I am currently using one as a cloudy server thing and I have plans to move my websites onto it so I don't have to pay for hosting no more but I've got other things I'd like to do too. I have a box of electronic bits that Ime never used. ..

My pi server has MPD on it too and does everything that that does except the air play. It's great being able to choose songs with just my phone. It feels like living in the future.

I'd love to take it off your hands if that's ok?

I set mine up to replace my squeezebox which since being upgraded to UE radio can no longer see any of my server based music. It's now a doorstop.

Snap!

Some comparisons between the new and old models. I see they have gone up by 2 quid already!

They use them in the science museum to run a multi-screen multimedia exhibit on web pages with Tim Berners-Lee and Josie Long (of all people).
Toot toot.

I knew prevarication was the best policy. However, given the date I think I'll wait until tomorrow before getting my hopes up.

I was believing it too. I've since read the blog post that linked from it and that's a dead giveaway.
