I see there's a Pi flavoured magazine released, here, though at the time I looked two of the download links were down and the third opened the magazine in a viewer which is less than ideal for reading on-screen.

First link down, 2nd too much traffic.

Third, reads ok using the tool bar.. change view to 2 page layout and maximize the screen.

Mine is on order!

Postby bugstalk » Sun May 06, 2012 6:51 pm

Just send me the bad one - I'll solder the new connector on it myself!!!

How can I write an informed article on a device I have yet to see?
While Linux may need some improvement, it is by far the best operating system out there..... and getting better with every keystroke.

Ah, those far-off days when Sinclair would sell you the kit or parts or, for a few quid more, one that was already assembled and actually worked!

Just got my "invite" to order one from RS.

Delivery in 3 weeks, apparently.

Mind you, I remember ordering my ZX80 with its supposed 30 day delivery.........

I got that from RS a few days ago, but when I ordered the confirmation email said 7 days.... and then three weeks further down, so I guess I'll get it when I get it.
