Hardware, Embedded Systems "As the Raspberry Pi started to ship the Sinclair ZX Spectrum turned 30 years old, and comparisons were being made between the two and their role in providing access to affordable computer hardware.

Mine is supposed to be delivered in the week of May 28th, according to the email from Farnell. It's just a couple of weeks after my birthday so it's going to be a great present to myself. ;)

I'm jealous! I could probably take some time off my part time job but I don't get sick or vacation time there. And my weekends off are spent with the girlfriend...but she's very accepting of my tech addiction and she's as excited as I am about the RPi.

I'm looking forward to your write-up on it!
