I’ve posted about the humble Raspberry Pi before. A mighty-mouse computer, the size of a credit card or package of small candies. Despite its small size, a quad-core 1.0+ gHz computer that runs linux.

Tech Support: “What seems to be the problem?”
floz: “My internet is slow as heck.”
TS: “What kind of computer are you using?”
TS: “Windows or Mac?”
floz: “Neither… I mean, I have two windows machines, a macbook, and half a dozen linux machines. What do you need?”

Children, at least all the ones I know, are tiny little savages.
If you’ve never read Lord Of The Flies, you should. The story indicates quite clearly why children are not allowed any real power.
It’s not insulting in this case to call children tiny savages. It is, rather, a statement of fact.
