My RaspberryPi

My RaspberryPi

This is my latest toy. Although it is one of the cheapest but one of the most interesting ones!

I bought is from au.element14.com in Australia and ordered a case off ebay that I broke while putting it together! It was one of the transparent ones and very fragile. You do not really need a case for it.

I will not go into details of how to set this up as you can find a lot of info on the web.

Just a few notes:

  • For me copying the image to SD took about 10 minutes.
  • Power is through the USB port of my router
  • The desktop Linux is quite responsive but do not expect much from it
  • I enabled ssh and connect to it only remotely. Lynx browser is of some help sometimes !

I am planning to use it as a proxy/firewall in front of my router so currently installing a proxy server into it. I will try to use GPIO ports in the future.
