5.0 out of 5 stars The definitive book, 16 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you have a Raspberry Pi buy this book. Not only does it take you right through setup, it has some very useful tips and tricks. I've been 40 years in the computer business, and still learned a lot from this book. A definite must-have.

It may be my monitor, an old Iiyama, but using this to convert the output from a raspberry pi wasn't completely reliable.

The white light is bright but reasonablt diffuse. Th UV does what I wanted, checking the authenticity of antique glass. The laser pointer works, but the dot isn't quite as sharp as it should be. Pretty good for the price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant album, 16 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is Maddy Prior and band at their very best. Downloading this was a wonderful little addition to our Christmas.

The problem is that the download site doen't seem to support Linux properly. I had to download the tracks one at a time rather than all in one go. This could and should be fixed.

These are difficult to get hold of now, but if you have a Pentax Ist or similar camera they are worth tracking down as the lower source impedance means that you don't get the irritating warning messages you get with alkaline batteries.

5.0 out of 5 stars Scalextric Classic, 3 Jan 2011
= Durability:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This was purchased as a Christmas present for one of my motor-racing loving nieces. I haven't tried it myself, but judging from the scream of joy, and the subsequent messages it's been a great hit.

It's good to see Scalextric producing models of the sort of car that I drove on the road when I was young.
