Experiments with a Raspberry Pi
The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card-sized single-board computer developed in the UK by the Raspberry Pi Foundation as an educational tool, but it's attracted a hobbyist following.
The new Revision B model sports 512 megabytes of ram, a 700 megahertz arm processor and the storage is provided by a flash card. This makes it a machine capable of doing usable work as well as being fun for experimenters.
It runs a few different operating systems, but the default is a Debian derivative called Raspbian.
This blog was developed on a Raspberry Pi and would run on one even though I have put this on real hosting.
Subjects covered so far here include how to make your RPI into Network Attached Storage, how to run a media server for a Roku box, how to set up a blog, and how to set up a dynamic domain name for your RPI hosted blog so you can share it with the world.
