My Raspberry Pi has arrived!

I’ve been (im)patiently waiting for my Raspberry Pi to show up since mid-March & can’t wait to get started playing with it.

My goal is use it as the controller for a compact NAS despite the potential bandwidth issues with USB drives as the media. I’ll probably do the first backups with the drive(s) connected to the source machines and Rsync the changes afterward, so I’m not too concerned about saturation. I could be wrong tho.

I also want to try Puppy for Raspberry Pi – search or browse thru the posts on Barry’s blog for updates on his builds. It’s an Alpha now and still has some issues. I’ll post a link to the image once it gets to the Release stage.
