Issue #15 — Minecraft

Friday 27 September 2013

Hi everyone

Ben has now returned from his holiday in Berlin and is now enjoying the last few days before he goes back to work. Check out his extensive blog post about the trip. Somehow he managed to accidentally leave a Raspberry Pi (complete with PI Lite and SD card) in with his washing when he got back. It’s currently drying out in a container of rice – he’ll try booting it to see if it still works!

Ryan announced his new project RPiDNS this week along with also working with Martin O’Hanlon and David Whale to import little Raspberry Pi markers into a Minecraft world from Rastrack.
