After tracking down a few items via online purchases and some brick & mortar visits I finally have the pieces to get the Raspberry Pi running. I cleared of a space on the side my desk to temporarily use for the Pi.
I ordered a 36" long 26 pin ribbon cable to the GPIO interface. I want to be able to move the breadboard or associated projects around comfortably while I am working on things. I have been busy traveling/commuting for work this week so I have not gotten back to the Pi since last Sunday.
It shows plenty of potential. I have a couple of projects in mind, time permitting.
