Hardware, Embedded Systems "Raspberry Pis started being made a couple of days ago, but I was forbidden to tell you about it until signed contracts and receipts for payment had arrived - it's been killing me, especially since I've had tens of you asking me when manufacturing would start every day for the last few weeks. I am not good at keeping secrets." No more secrets to keep, Liz! I can't wait to place my order.

I'm doing this exactly since many years! I have an old Sony Vaio PCG C1XD (Pentium 2 400MHz, 64MB RAM) with an uptime of almost 3 years. In the morning it goes of out sleep and stream a specific radio station over wifi. I put it to sleep when done.

I tried using X on it, but gosh it's slow. I can barely browse using Opera. So I removed that all. Virtual consoles are just fine for controlling this. alsamixer in one, and vlc in the other. I agree the "hard" part is the software: how to control it efficiently... But I'm quite impress of what that little machine can still do!
