    The current PacktPub ebook is on the Raspberry Pi. I think it's an interesting product, and I think it's now something like third in the top selling computer list. It seems to have numerous uses. Does anyone fancy starting a community experiment thread for experimenting with some?

    I had a Raspberry Pi 2... currently have a Pi Zero sitting on my desk waiting to be toyed with, thinkin about making it a private "counter-surveillance" email server...

    I also have a C.H.I.P. which is way cheaper really ( and I totally enjoy really ).. as a reward for having contributed... also coded a PICO-8 game for it.

    I was thinking of using one as a packet sniffer and WiFi analyser

    CHIP works for that.. it's got wifi built in... tbh I was looking for a potential / inexpensive thin client.. and I was blown away by this $10 micro

    I looked at these things once, but with my limited knowledge I doubt I'd do anything good apart from plug power to it lol

    Hey, to be totally honest.. that's how I started messing around with these micros, mostly expected to get a new hobby...

    I first got the Pi Zero first as a Christmas present from my sister.. seen that it was a pretty complete arm based computer capable of more than I had imagined.. quite frankly, if you attach a keyboard/mouse/monitor.. this can be a very low cost, fully fledged, office computer... then when I really dug deep and seen how much power they managed to cram in such a small device and the potential of what I could "build" with it, that is when I really got all hooked into them.

    That Pi Zero, for example, has been at some point...
    • A multi game-console / arcade machine / Media Client for my TV
    • HTTP Server
    • HardDrive controller for mining Burst Crypto Currency
    • Disassembled in the corner of my desk (recently moved)
    The best part is that for the cost, you really do not "need" to know ahead of time what to do with them, instead they can be low cost learning tools or possibly spark the imagination of what you can potentially do with such little devices.

    In any case.. it all does typically start with "plugging power to it"! :)

    I've just been reading about installing Kali Linux on a Pi, and that is really interesting.

    I'm trying to resist the temptation to divert onto that. :)

    I have a Pi 2 kicking around. Haven't thought of anything truely useful for it as of yet. I'm in for suggestions. I do have a cobbler, breadboard and some other accessories such as resistors, led's and the sorts. Nothing fancy.
