The Raspberry Pi computer

If you don't know what a Raspberry Pi computer is, check them out at

Basically, a Raspberry Pi computer is a tiny (as in a deck of cards) computer:

"The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard. It’s a capable little PC which can be used for many of the things that your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word-processing and games. It also plays high-definition video. We want to see it being used by kids all over the world to learn programming." - from

I have three of them. One Rpi is running Raspbmc for our media center. And, two more are running Raspian Linux (based on Debian-wheezy). The Raspian computers host a bunch of servers and services for me, including a couple PHP websites.

One of the best things about the Raspberry Pi, is they are silent and draw hardly any electricity. My two Raspian servers sit on a shelf right next to my wap/router (which will soon be replaced by a fourth Raspi.

I love Raspberry Pi computers!
