The Gorse Fox was expecting 2 deliveries - a new Raspberry Pi and a Wall-fixed washing line. The Law of Sod intervened. As it was pouring with rain, the washing line was delivered first. GF is now waiting for either the rain to stop, or the Raspberry Pi to arrive.
Oh well, in the meantime he can rip some of the DVDs that he plans to deliver via the Media Server he has planned for the Pi.
