Has anyone ever messed around with a Raspberry Pi?  There are a ton of different starter kits and I don’t know what I would actually need.  Suggestions?

Just bought an Alienware Area - 51m lapper for my new CAD machine. 


*Crosspost Alert*   Used the shop through Chase option on the UR site which should net me a total of about 10,000 URs for this purchase.  *Crosspost Alert*

Absolutely fascinating and in a class of exploits that effect ALL of cloud computing. I don't do as much infrastructure stuff at my new job as I did at my last but I still keep up to date.

It was time for a refresh of my home office stuff since I've had the same setup for a few years.

I got 3 of these and they came today, highly recommend.

Also got I think my third generation of this laptop/mouse combo, I absolutely love them and have one for work today.

I have the same size monitors at work but they aren't infinity edge. Even though they aren't really bigger having that small of a bevel makes such a difference. I also really like I can swing these vertical if I want, will be really helpful when I am coding.
