    I thought about getting myself one, since that is an interesting ARM board...and really, really cheap!
    I am disturbed because I cannot break my system...found out there were others trying to cope! We have a support group on here, if your system will not break, please join!

    LOL, I use it since last spring, I also play a lot with Arduino to control my aquariums, but I'm more use to the CTI PIC Controller ,I use them on my train layout , so each controller is fully independent and can be program to do what ever I need.

    all I need to do is to connect each modules and use a software to control them, I even program the think with a special design computer language.

    I have 32 similar modules under the layout, ( and some tough that computer wiring is confusing, lol )

    66 .. incredible .. I will never look at a train layout the same again .. like all things
    there is far more 'below' the surface than a bunch of trains going in a circle .. cudos.

    The article tickled me so ... especially the part where he had 'hoped' to sell 10,000 units ..
    and ~gasp~ SOLD OUT .. practically overnight.

    Now that's a good use Area66!, I've never tried the Raspberry Pi but I've heard good and bad but bad depends on Usage I guess. me I've been using the TI MSP430 for a while now but for little things like controlling my Security Alarm Timers for House Lights and the one that Pisses of my wife is Controlling the IR Sensor for the Bathroom Light! I got it set for 10 mins! I haven't stopped long enough from other things to play with the thing much more than this because it was an Expensive Toy!

    That is an interesting use for PIC microcontrollers. I take it you are really into trains? Any of them in nice black and red color schemes with ROG proudly displayed on the tender?
