I Got a Raspberry Pi


posted March 6, 2015

I received a Raspberry Pi as a gift recently. I was perusing tutorials online and realized I’m not sure what I want to do with it.

For one, I had imagined I could connect it to one of my old 15-pin computer monitors, but from perusing forums I apparently cannot – so I’ll have to hook it up to the TV in my living room.

Two, it seems it’s just a simple ARM processor that runs Linux. I love learning Linux, but that’s something I can do on any computer. I’m not into robotics or gaming… so maybe I’m just having a failure of imagination at the moment. (I will have to invest some time into further reading.)

I’ll boot it up over the weekend, and go from there. Hit me up on twitter if you have any projects you’d like to share.
