Anyway it crossed my mind that I don't have a backup of the data it contains, so I knocked up a simple script to dump the contents in plain-text:
I received an email last night to say that my Raspberry PI has shipped. Ordered 24/05/2012, and dispatched 12/10/2012 - I'd almost forgotten about it.
My plan is to make it a media-serving machine, SNES emulator, or similar. Not 100% decided yet.
Finally I've taken the time to repaint my office. When I last wrote about working from home I didn't include pictures - I just described the process of using a "work computer" and a "personal computer".
So this is what my office used to look like. As you can see there are two machines and a huge desk.
With a few changes I now have an office which looks like this - the two machines are glued-together with a KVM. and I have much more room behind it for another desk, more books, and similar toys. Additionally my dedication is now enforced - I simply cannot play with both computer as the same time.
The chair was used to mount the picture - usually I sit on a kneeling chair, which is almost visible.
What inspired the painting? Partly the need for more space, but mostly water damage. I had a leaking ceiling. (Local people will know all about my horrible leaking roof situation).
