Yeah, that commute would kill me..
I'll be printing cases once my Pi's arrive, so once I settle on a good
design I'll print one for you too.. ;)

Sigh, Never enough hours in the day to do all I want.
3+ hours a day commuting during the week from Winchester to Herndon each day
(600+ miles a week) on the weekends its hard enough coming back in to town 1
Saturday a month for Novalug. I'm now driving the wife's 'clown car' (2009
Smart) as gas is creeping back up. I've been asked that when I pull up to a
light do 10 'little people' get out and dance around the car and get back in
before the light changes... :-) .
I'll just live vicariously through others at this time and see if I can find
someone who wants to play with their own toys and 'fire me one off' when
something is finalized.
