Pics: kids and their Raspis

Wed Jun 20, 2012 11:39 am

Just put this on the main page. Thanks very much to all the parents who sent us pictures to use. Some of these are just hopelessly cute - go and have a look to remind yourself what this project is all about!

You need to follow this up with one of cute OAPs trying to make sense of the Pi!

There's *one* cute OAP in those pics. But this is an excellent idea. My Dad still refuses to try to use one, saying he's worried he'll mess up and I'll write about it.

you would never do that would that, at least not on the forum. you'd save it for a nice newspaper article that you could have framed. :lol:

When ever I sit in front of the 'puter the cat insists on jumping up and walking across the keys and generally getting in the way. Now I want to take a photo of him he just won't play ball. I can see that I will just have to superglue those paws to the mouse.

Will Velcro work? Probably only on long-haired cats. (Half serious.)
