There was a raspberry pi 2B for sale on a forum, been wanting to play with one for a while now.
It has the case, wifi dongle and the Ras Pi2B for a good price, so I bought it.
Not sure what I'll do with it when I get it, but should be fun learning something new.
Going to order a sensor kit, see temps, humidity, and a bunch of stuff.
Maybe a night vision camera with IR lights.
 
So, have one? What do you do with yours?

    Have but not in use, was using for BU with some R-Boxes.
    What I did not care was when you lost power you have to Re-Load the OS, takes about 2 Hours to complete and but BOINC back on.

    Nothing fancy for the moment, I'm using it as a media center with OSMC.

    You must of had the first one, or something else was wrong hardware wise.
    I got mine up and running, the OS is on a SD card and the BIOS is too. It is a version of Ubuntu Linux, "slow" lol
    I unplug mine and plug it in and it boots right up, it does lose the correct time, there is no real time clock on board.
    It connects to a time server on its own at startup and gets the correct time..
    Running it off of one of those cellphone backup battery chargers.
    It seems to sip power, I was web surfing for an hour and battery was still fully charged.
    Going to order a night vision camera and a weather station setup....

    I considered getting one to mess around with.  I saw a pretty cool NES inspired case for it on Amazon and saw that you can stream PC games to it.

    I used PI's OS, never tried any other.
    Pull The Power Cable and Then Plug in Back In and it Boot Fine. This is Good the hear.

    I have a 2 and a 3. 2 is a media center have not yet decided what to do with the 3, may actually give it to my nephew to learn coding or something.

    Man is capable of as much atrocities as he has imagination.  
    People are, well, only human. We know that. The rule of law is borne out in identifying, condemning, and punishing those who violate the standards on which we all agree. This is exactly what we do in America.
