Thinking of designing a GPIO expansion board for the Raspberry Pi. Here's what I have so far:

- Taking a 9-20V input and dropping to to two 5V 1.5A circuits. One powering the Pi, one powering the expansion board.
- RTC so that the Ras Pi can stay up to date without internet
- Two or more temperature sensors
- A powered USB hub (that plugs into a USB port on the Ras Pi)

Anything else I should look at adding to it? And of course this is in the very early idea stage.

I would definitely have been able to use this board.  As it is I've jumpered the high side of the RPi's regulator to my offboard devices to pull amps from the microUSB supply instead of the 5V rail on the GPIO.  Doing this right off the GPIO breakout board would have been ideal.

Raspberry Pi Server in an actual server room :o
It has a 100MB link to the internet too. Limited by the Raspberry Pi itself.

So for about $90 each, I can get a nice RasPi set up for small LANs. Which means people won't have to worry about carting computers to my place in Perth. Instead they can just cart USBs with files to share. $35-$40 for folding tables, 2 would be plenty for the LANs.

So for about another $400, I could get a decent set up for LANs that disappears into nothing, and allows me to have people who don't have their own PCs over to game.

That or I build myself a $700 Micro-ITX PC to take to LANs.

Haha, this is a new JavaScript Canvas engine.
Started work on it for 2D development, mainly for LD48s.

So, A USB Port on my Keyboard has stopped working and my mouse is dying. I've already picked out a new mouse, what sort of keyboard should I look at getting? (If I can't get Logitech to replace it)

But but... I like my programs on the Mac, especially sketchbook pro 
There's just less temptations on the Mac (but quiet a few games on Steam though XD)
And the retina screen is so nice
Not really an Apple fan boy just like the retina Macbook pro for the nice resolution that works well when doing digital illustrations

So, here's my plans for my Computer set up here (What are your thoughts on this wall of text?):

Upstairs in the study:
My current machine with it's 4 screens acting as a development and study machine. Hard wired into my modem/router set up, which is also in this room.
Also wired into this will be a home server box (glorified NAS that I am yet to buy). This is going to have bulk storage and store a copy of all the files on my development machine, as well as all my media and whatnot.
Sitting next to this glorified NAS will be my Raspberry Pi server. This will run anything that I need to have high up-time on, like my IRC bouncer and personal web server.
Internet is provided by the Modem router, which won't do any DHCP. Instead a mikrotik router will be doing all that stuff. Plan is to later set it up with a Point to Point VPN to my parents house, and the guys I use to work with.

Across the hall in my bedroom:
I am planning on getting a decent spec Micro ITX Machine to act as my main gaming machine. This is going to set in the room and connect to the network wirelessly. It's going to be plugged into a TV along with a heap of other game consoles.

Downstairs in the shared lounge room:
Another Raspberry Pi (a 512MB model) is going to be hooked up to the TV and set up with RaspBMC. Media Center machine basically, streaming everything wirelessly from the Glorified NAS. That is all that will be set up down there, as I get in trouble if I leave anything down there.

What I still need to get/do:
512MB Raspberry Pi, and a case for it. Then of course, I will need to set it up.
Mini ITX Machine: I know what parts I want. i just need the money to order it and to build it and set it up.
The glorified NAS: Need to but it, get some hard drives for it and set it up.
TV for the bedroom: i need to find one.
