It's been harder than I thought - getting the Pi up and running the way I want. Lots of trawling and trial and error (oh, the errors). Then I had to do it all again! when I corrupted the SD card (more about avoiding that later).
A big thanks to the folks at the Adelaide Hackerspace who've helped me get my baby up and running. Especially Pix, Tim, and Jon. I promise to mostly use my new skills for good. :)
