Be honest, you thought you had hit the EDIT button so you could remove the extra 'a' but it turned out to be the QUOTE button.

This Raspberry looks a lot like the Arduino I have been using to produce an electronic product.
Less than £20 and connects to the USB port of a computer for power and data. The software writing editor is available free on the internet, as are many examples and projects of code.
The Raspberry goes a lot further, especially in connectivity terms. I shall be getting one as soon as RS or Farnell get them in stock.

You and I should use an endless stream of vowels and consonants to form the words we will use to effectively assemble a forceful tirade of well constructed sentences which will aid and assist us in our tireless struggle to virtually eliminate verbosity

Yeah I remember writing a couple of simple programmes on my ZX81 I think the language I used was BASIC, the trouble was that the whole thing was such a shaky affair that you kept loosing everything you had done and then you only had 16k to play with. As I progressed to better machines and ready made programmes became easier to obtain. I forgot all ideas of becoming a programmer.
