‘For the love of Pete, America, learn about decent chocolate’

Jame_s

hershey's milk chocolate smells (and probably tastes) like baby puke, their dark stuff is ok. i've heard a couple of theories, one that they use powdered milk (would explain the baby puke smell), another that they use some sour cream in it (for some reason here people dont throw out cream when it goes off, they eat it)

on another note, they dont know jack shit about bacon here - all most places have is burnt wafer thin streaky bacon. shoulder bacon is rare and back bacon is only available from specialist butchers.

The Raspberry Pi: Is it REALLY the saviour of British computing?

Jame_s

HDMI not compulsory

You don't need an HDMI display for the PI, any old tv with a composite input will work.

Having said that, I do agree that cheap computers do not make programmers. How many parents in the 80s bought Timmy an 8 bit micro thinking they were helping with his education only to end up with an expert in Jetset Willy?
