During Christmas I got a raspberry pi and I have been waiting to start playing around with it for ages. Finally I decided to order the remaining pieces for it such as the power cable and SD card.
Since I didn’t have a HDMI TV around I decided to plug it into the router and see if it worked, luckily the latest version of the OS has DHCP and ssh enabled by default, which meant I didn’t even need to plug it into a screen to start using it.
I plan on looking at installing apache and icinga onto it to play around with and probably will run an instance of irssi as well.
The first things I installed were git and vim. Vim is very useful when there is no full UI because of its many features and excellent code highlighting, I plan to use git to centralise some of my code that I plan to run on the pi.
