.....ordered a Rasperry Pi on Friday, from element14 (UK), and it arrived following Wednesday.

I'm not convinced about this. All the people raving and excited about getting one are out of their teens or remember when computers were really simple. etc

I've yet to hear what the kids at school now think about them when they actually get their hands on them. In the days when most have smart phones , I suspect they will be unimpressed.

I remember when computing machines were programmed with plug boards and punched cards, but I still know an innovation when I see it.

The innovation here is the price point; We can get these into the hands of almost every family who also owns a television.

The ability to close the digital divide is the goal here.

Six weeks to go if 12 weeks was a reliable figure.

MCM Electronics sent me an email today highlighting the Pi. It sent me here. $35 for a basic board and $80 for a board, case, power supply, mouse, keyboard and a 4GB SD card with the OS on it with a few other bundles priced in between those. I've bought stuff from them in the past with no issues and they say that they have them in stock now.

The board is currently under "developer" release. The foundation has said that they are trying to create training and other material (like cases) before explicitly directing it to the classroom. The educational release has been targeted for "later in 2012".

I'm amazed they haven't tested it with young focus groups at least , or have they? As I say, I have seen no child user feedback on this , only 30 + yr old adults salivating over its release.

It's technology. I'm sure some kids will find it fabulous and some will not care at all. I would have loved having it when I was a kid.

When I was a kid I was nearly in heaven when I was allowed to punch card decks of FORTRAN II programs and send them off to the college to be run.

Working through bluetooth dongle stuff...

raspbmc does not come with that installed, but it's easy enough;

apt-get install bluetooth

Has anybody made a bluetooth dongle work on it?

ETA: It refuses to pair, and then it freezes.

They could call it the Raspberry 64. It could be the modern equivalent of a Commodore 64.

You do bring up a serious objection. RaspberryPi devotes a lot of resources to the vid & gui intereface. and has relatively poor storage and network options. I'd rather see some on-board FLASH mem and then login via network, drop the vid altogether and add a SATA interface and a GigE enet. No one is buying this b/c it has brilliant graphics, but it does have some great potential as a low-power 24x7 server.

What are you waiting for ? The 3.6.rc4 kernel is out and 3.3 is long--stale.

BTW - pull a cross compiler - they are free.

Very cool. I considered a mint tin insulated with tape, but it was a bit too small.

How you getting on with XBMC on the RPi Ben?

Considering putting one together for the bedroom to replace my WDTV. I run Openelec downstairs, but unfortunately have little (well, practically zero) experience running linux through command line. Seen some nice guides though.

Have you tried the XBMC alphas on Android? Using it on my phone and N7. I can even use my phone as an XBMC remote to control the N7 XBMC instance. Geektastic.

Well, I diverted into trying to get bluetooth working. My "use case" is that I use bluetooth to connect the pi to the internet. Made that work tonight. Also got a keyboard/trackpad paired to it successfully.

XBMC at least as I compiled it, seems to have some limitations. I am going to have to get a copy of the RMBC image again and see if that works better.

Finding that a bluetooth PAN takes about 1/3 of the CPU time. Something still not right there. And if I leave it running a radio stream through VLC, I find that the machine is frozen a few hours later.

Sometimes mysterious freeze-ups can be due to power issues. Is the adapter powering the RPi putting out 5 watts? Also, the RPi can become unstable if a USB device draws too much power. The bluetooth dongle might be the culprit, but somehow I doubt it. But if you have a powered USB hub, maybe try plugging the bluetooth into that and the hub into the RPi.

Adafruit offers a 5.25V adapter, so that if you draw a lot and you get some voltage drop over the USB cable, you still have at least 5V when it gets to the device.

Linux Sysadmin / ameteur programmer here, i have two model-B's in the mail ! should be here in less than two months

I do not know what I will do with these.

I'm open to all suggestions/brainstorming here. I need a new project.

The project can be ridiculously ambitious, open to all ideas.

There is always software that needs writing.

I'm thinking along the lines of a Hypercard clone. A way for non-programmers to create active content while at the same time having considerable programming extensibility.

Not talking anything binary-compatible, but compatible in most key concepts.

Why hypercard? It was designed for and worked well on an 8 MHz 68000 and so is very lightweight and adaptable to small platforms.

Maplins (UK electronics store) are selling a Raspberry Pi Model B kit. Easy to get hold of one in the UK. All you need is a TV to get going.

MagPi being published as a paper and ink mag.

HELP!!!!

I have a really noob problem with my raspberry pi. I have a WiFi dongle that gets a signal but when I try to click the OK at the bottom of the WiFi configure Window it doesn't show. There is no bar to scroll up and down. When the window is resized it can't be placed anywhere where the bottom of the window is showing. LXCE and wheezy. I have tried google and the raspberryfi wiki and forum but I don't know the correct question to ask. I would pull my hair out but there is not much left.

AgeGap, sorry, I have only done bluetooth configuration.

What I suggest is that there may be a command-line way to configure your WiFi.
