Raspberry Pi – Just arrived

My raspberry pi has arrived I’m so excited to get down and dirty with it. I have loads of ideas of what to do with it and with so many projects buzzing through my head I’m probably going to need to get a few more :-)


I’m at work at the moment and have already written a little script in my lunch that I want to put on the Pi so on boot up it will email me with the new IP it picks up from DHCP (this will be needed for one of my projects)

Script: It works by seeing if you can ping out to the web first and if it can if will email the contents of what connection it picks up from either eth or wlan via ifconfig.
