Come on Steve! One thing at a time! No one ever said Poo-Poo was quick, now did they?
"Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end." 

Well, someone had to say it!

2 quick questions BM, what OS does it run and how easy is it to sort out device drivers for it. Since the test bed laptops at the store were chucked out in the great clean up I've had to use my own to test any computer kit that we are donated so one of these could be a viable alternative.
Some days I think the only thing keeping me from becoming homicidal is that the voices can't agree on which weapon would be the most fun.

Have a look here...

I stuck "wheezy" on it (debian) to give it a try - worked first time... desktop is as per the picture I posted...

But you can also get Android for it....

I didn't spend long on it today as I was working off the mini keyboard but finding the pub, logging-in and posting was very fast...

It could have potential, I'd forgotten all about RISC, haven't seen that since I was in college.



Now it's just going to be a case of seeing if I can convince the area manager to let us buy one.  noooo:

It is a great machine!

Runs off a 5V mobile phone charger... two USB sockets, HDMI out... uses an SD card for storage and also has a GPIO port...

Fooking laptop again. worked perfectly yesterday but when I booted it up today was told I had limited or no connectivity so no emails or t'interweb on it. Tried the usual fixes for the problem:

Windows Repair
ipconfig /release - ipconfig /renew
ipconfig /flushdns

Checked the state and manually stopped and restarted the DHCP client service and the RPC service

Disabled and then renabled the wireless network connection.

And the bloody thing is still telling me that no operation can be performed on the local area connection while its media is disconnected and that the IP is currently 0.0.0.0

My desktop pc connects, my xbox connects and so does my tablet.
