Zumspot Revival (I was wrong!)

Ok so I wrote recently that the ZUMspot Pi boards were no longer available from Bruce and I made the mistake of concluding that meant they were no longer available. Tuns out I was wrong! The ZUMspot Pi boards are available in the USA exclusively from HRO (Ham Radio Outlet)

There's four listing's when you do a search on their website for "ZUMspot"

So yup, I was wrong! I'm happy to wrong because it means that you can still get yourself a ZUMspot Pi board!

Raspberry PiZero

I managed to get my hands on the much sought after Raspberry PiZero the smallest of the Raspberry Pi line. The PiZero was release with edition number 40 of the MagPi Magazine that included the PiZero board for free! (well you had to buy the magazine!) but now 3rd party distributors have limited stock and I managed to get mine from my favourite electronics supply Little Bird Electronics.


I was not quite sure what to do with the PiZero and then it struck me that it's the perfect thing to host the current official OS Raspbian & the NOOBs bootloader. so it's currently running Transmission-daemon and is seeding four files.

Obviously this won't be it's only role but until I find something better this will do!
