Can you dicks stop clogging up Farnell and RS with your Raspberry Pi orders, I'm trying to do some Important Work here :p
(seriously, both websites collapsed under the strain for a while this morning).

I registered my interest but don’t expect to see one for 3 months or so. That’s not a bad thing as hopefully there will some cases and things available by then.

I sold my Raspberry Pi after a week because I couldn't get it to work.

Still, I got double what I paid for it in the first place, which was nice. (I never intended to profiteer, incidentally.)

Is that because it was broken or because it didn't work as you expected?

Mine turned up last week, I extracted a Linux ISO onto a 16GB SD and it worked a treat.

Ordered a 32GB from memorybits a week ago and its still not here :roll: (the 16GB is out of my camera)

What I need to do next is get a screen that takes HDMI or get a DVI adaptor, I had it plugged into my TV for the test.

All in a nice thing to have, I had to wait at least 5 months for it though.

Don't have the technical ability, basically. Knew it wasn't plug and play, but didn't expect it to be so difficult to get working.

When are they going to get the X server to be hardware accelerated with the GPU? That's all that's really holding me back for the project I have in mind.

The big question is, will they now do a cut-down version called Electron while beefing up the main one to Master [128|Compact]?

Wait, there was a Model C, wasn't there?

You plug it in, get it to work, exclaim a few times that "IT'S A COMPUTER! AN ACTUAL WORKING COMPUTER! FOR THIRTY POUNDS! BARGAIN!" and then unplug it all, put it away in a drawer and leave it there.

Only if you're a cynical, uninventive bastard. ;)

I intend to use mine as a media centre (using Raspbmc). :)

I have it at work, plugged in and booted up, but I've realised I don't have a cable to plug it into a screen. Gah!

Old Thread - New Post!

I've just bought meself a Pi3 on a whim.

Probably going to install Amibian (bootable amiga emulation) on one card and RetroPie on another for console emulation.

Or... play with it for a few days then forget I had it.

Been having a lot of fun with kids playing SNES games. They love Cool Spot! I got a couple of cheap USB SNES controllers from eBay and they work great.

Love it.

Was it difficult to set up and get going? I think I want one of these but don't know a thing about them to be fair.

Not really tricky, but I am a computery guy. The trickiest part is obtaining ROMs.

The PS1 emulation seems to work well on the Pi3. Even the rumble works if you use the USB Xbox pad.

Well, it works for Gran Turismo anyway as that's the only game that I legally own. Might have to legally own a few more...
