A few memento's like that and it'll soon feel like home.

Nice one with the Pi. Just today I've been gifted a Raspberry 3+ in a housing with a 7" touchscreen.

I don't know much about them really.


Nice... 3+ is a decent little machine. There are lots of things you can use a PI for. That can be stuff like running it as a standalone Amiga-emulator (Armbian or Amiberry). You can use it as a standalone Commodore64 emulator (Combian64). Then you can use it for running RiscOS. You can set it up as any type of Linux server. Pi-Hole (Add-removing tool for entire network). VPN server. Desktop Linux. And then all these tons of images that transforms it into a multi-arcade-emulator machine, with a nice interface and all customizeable. Or something else, that you choose, based on how good you are at programming and modding a Linux kernal. Uhhh.... And Windows10 IOT can be run on it as well.

One fine example for useage are stuff like this:

Awesome! Thanks.

It's just got the default Rasbian on there at the moment but it has a dual boot with openelec (I think) that boots to a Kodi install.

There is another couple of SD cards with it but I don't know what's on them. This daft screen case - housing thing it has, means you have to disassemble it to access the slot!

LibreELEC is the Kodi loader.

Ha! Internet exploder can't view Zeffs embedded youtube vid!

It renders the quick reply box properly tho, unlike Opera which presents a black background to the black text.

Considering messing with an FX5600 that I was gifted, dunno if I can be arsed, it's bound to be shite.
