Coming to you from my Raspberry Pi 2

2016-02-09-075658_1776x952_scrotI cannot believe how small my Raspberry Pi 2 is and yet it is functioning as a complete computer. I have not had to compromise as yet. My big achievement was putting it together even though it is quite straight forward. Tip: Put the micro SD card in the slot UNDERNEATH the card. Nothing showed me or told me where to put it so it was a matter of looking hard!Tomorrow I’ll show you just how small it is. I have it connected to my computer monitor with an HDMI cable. It is running off an ethernet cable and I have a mouse and keyboard plugged in. When I switched on the power it just loaded a couple of screens of code and voilà. It runs Claws as an email client and I have used Claws before on Linux and like it. My gmail account thought I (someone) had logged in from Safari on a Macbook so Gmail can’t recognise a Raspberry Pi. Before I knew it I was in Terminal loading Scrot so I could take a screenshot or two. The images then go into the image viewer on the menu. I am running on Debian which is unix (apple) like. I got the Raspberry Pi as part of my two things to get better at this year – coding and making videos. There is a lot of Python on this Raspberry Pi and I can shift the Python things I have already onto here and I should be right. I am amazed how such a tiny piece of equipment can be so fully functional. All credit to the developers.
