My 40th birthday today, so being a bit quiet and doing real-life things (although hacking will be part of that, got to finish off the Music Box properly!). On Saturday, at Potton Pi & Pints, my wife and my good friend Tim Richardson organised a surprise party! I think it’s fair to say that I was speechless when I arrived at the top of the stairs to find the upper room of The Rising Sun decorated and ready for a buffet with lots of my Pi friends, family, church friends and friends I hadn’t seen for ages in attendance! Thanks to everyone who came and made it so special – I felt honoured and blessed 🙂
Issue 50 of Raspberry Pi magazine The MagPi is coming up soon. To celebrate, part of the issue will feature the top 50 projects so far and the community has been asked to vote on the top 20. There are many of my favourites in there (I won’t mention which ones as I’d hate to deny you the privilege of seeing the list for yourself). I reckon I’ve seen 8 or 9 of them in person, and they are worthy contenders! So, it’s time to get involved – browse the list, read up on the many projects and pick your favourite!
