Hey, people --  share this with the sysadmins in your company!

The OLF Institute offers sysadmin classes from professional instructors at a price your boss will approve.   Only $350 for a day of classes from instructors from Red Hat, the Linux Foundation, Cloudera, and more!  That's a value of $1000 or more.  Plus it comes with free admittance to all the talks and the Expo on Saturday.

And if you think, "But I'm not in Ohio!" -- we get people who come from all over the US and The Magical Land of Canadia for our weekend of Open Source Goodness.  Even with travel and (relatively inexpensive) hotel, it's still a cheaper trip than most other training events.

Yeah I got mine about 2 weeks ago!  I plan to use (for now) primarily as a streaming media player.  I've tried openelec and it is pretty solid but lacks the ability to really use it as a linux system....but it really is dead easy to use. 

Saka: Haven't tried out raspbmc.  Will have to check that out!

Looking forward to my Raspberry Pi being shipped out on July 5th!  Any suggestions on what I should do with it?

My laptop is running Fedora 16.  I have an CentOS 6.2 iso but for some reason my virtio drivers aren't showing up as available storage options and I have yet to figure out how to enable it, nor the patience to wait out a CentOS install :)

if you ever need to download a moderately large file (isos, etc) in a quick amount of time, 'yum install axel' is an awesome tool...i'm continually impressed with how much it speeds up my downloads...

# open 10 connections to download file
axel -n 10 $URL

works great!

I'm not too surprised that the bottleneck initially comes from the sources' speeds, but does your ISP not throttle you pretty quickly once you start reaching your peak download speeds?

A little disappointed my raspberry pi shipment keeps getting pushed back...especially when the posted on their blog that:

"Everyone who ordered before 18th April will definitely receive their Raspberry Pi before the end of June. Those placing new orders from today can expect a July delivery."

(note, I placed my order on the 11th)

http://www.element14.com/community/groups/raspberry-pi/blog/2012/04/18/latest-update-on-raspberry-pi-shipments-april-18

Oh well....hopefully it actually does ship out on Jul 13th as their site now says.
Hi Everyone. We're pleased to announce that we received our first batch of Raspberry Pi’s last Friday, April 13th. They were all shipped out over the next few days to customers across

There was either a crazy coincidence in timing, or their support team received my email highlighting my disappointment in the fact above.  My Pi has been shipped :)

Carrier Name: UPS
Carrier Service: E14 UPS GROUND
Shipment Date: 07/06/2012 20:04:15
Tracking Number: 1ZX29560030895XXXX

Cool :)

Kudos to them (newark/element14) for their quick turnaround!

We make sure to come to this winery whenever we have visitors in town. The staff (Alan, Buck, Dwight, etc) are super friendly and the wines are pretty good too! :)
