Conor’s 2012 Raspberry Pi Christmas Gift Guide
Ah, memories! Wish my kiddies were old enough for one of these...

I really think this Christmas could be a lovely replay of 1982 for a lot of people, like me, who got their first home computer that year. You could have so much fun on Christmas Day messing with the RPi rather than falling asleep in front of the fire. Just don’t fight over who gets the telly when Doctor Who is on.

Whilst the bare-bones nature of the Raspberry Pi is wonderful, it is unusable out of the box unless you are a house with smartphones, digital cameras and existing PCs already that you can raid for components. What you want to avoid is a repeat of me that December in 1982 with my brand-new 16K ZX Spectrum which didn’t work on our Nordmende TV until two weeks later when the RTV Rentals guy came and replaced the TV Tuner. Two weeks typing Beep 1,2 to make sure it wasn’t broken.

Wrapping parties around a tight budget - The Irish Times - Tue, Jun 12, 2012
"On the birthday present front, Crowley was shocked when she totted up her family’s spending for six months and realised she was spending more on gifts than on clothes for her entire family. A few 40th birthdays aside, she says the majority of the outlay is on gifts for her children’s friends." A lot of familiar names in this story ;)

Flickr: gruntzooki's stuff tagged with femur
Cory Doctorow got an MRI of his femur in prep for a surgical procedure -- and his wife used it to make a 3D-printed titanium keyring! awesome. I want to do this with MY SKULL
