raspberrypi installed

After the 3rd try, I managed to install wheezy on the raspberryPi.  It loads, and the xserver starts and everything is ok, with one exception, I need to get a HTMI to DVI adapter, so I can use it with my monitor, and not in the bedroom where the TV is, since my TV has HDMI.  Also a wireless keyboard, mouse combo is in order, oh did I forget to mention WiFi.  So I am shopping around for now, then I'll decide what to use it for, may be an FTP backup server, with a 500GB USB drive, or a proxy server, or a proxy + vpn server for my devices to connect to when I am on a public network.  Haven't made up my mind.

Linux on Raspberry PI

I've received my Raspberry Pi a while ago, probably more than 2 months ago, but still didn't get the time to start working on it.  I haven't even decided what I want to do with it... a backup server, maybe a squid proxy server, maybe my own proxy server to reach from the internet, I haven't made up my mind.  I'm also planning on buying an enclosure.  I'll try to start updating this blog more often....  stay tuned.
