The little joy has finally arrived, and while it is an absolute delight, there are some caveats. HDMI doesn’t seem to work out of the box (firmware upgrade needed) and I had to use my TV’s compound video to start getting it going. Hence the rather creative cabling. Another problem are fancy USB peripherals: my spare USB Keyboard has loads of lights, but they overwhelm the little Pi’s power consumption, so it doesn’t work fully. Luckily SSH works without a problem, so I can use my Macbook’s terminal to set it up. But these little glitches don’t really matter. Most importantly, it works, and only costs 30 quid. How cool is that?
