Mmmm… floor pie….

I bought a Raspberry Pi. I know there are faster, more powerful “System on a chip” computers, but the wealth of knowledge and information on the pi made it an obvious choice. I bought the “Model-B”, that features an Ethernet network port and lashed out and got a clear plastic case for it. I like to think it gives it a mini-Orac look…

I’m planning on using it to write basic web services to suit my needs. The first one, is going to be as the “back-end” (or “cloud” if you will!) for an Android app I have been thinking of.

Any app-store with half a million apps or so in it, is bound to have already covered the ideas I am likely to come up with. So, it is strictly a case of “done for the fun” combined with “not-invented-here” syndrome. Ultimately, I am planning on learning something away from what I do and know from work.

Like all true home projects, it runs the risks of being abandoned half-way through. However it goes, I’ll endeavour to blog about it as I go…
