That went well. The new Raspberry Pi "falcon" is installed and online. AT the moment it only has a basic configuration as the Gorse Fox hasn't decided on its ultimate role in the great scheme of things. Having said that, it sits there and happily runs Apache and when linked to the NAS will serve the family photos. The Gorse Fox is so pleased he wrote the configurator - it makes life so easy... and he has now refined it further so that he can define variables for on-the-fly substitutions. All very satisfying as it self-documents.
The weather is wonderful again today and the Gorse Fox popped round to Sainsbury's to get some scones and clotted cream for later. We may have some neighbours stopping by prior to their upcoming trip, so we need to be ready!
