Blogging, and other tools generally…

I’ve started looking through various bookmarked pages; an interesting co-incidence that when I thought I’d try to look at a range of aspects of Blogging in HE, I found that WordPress now offers the ability to use an online creator at WordPress.com to write for a self hosted blog.

Spectrum on the Raspberry Pi?

I was just thinking about getting the #Spectrum emulator going on my #raspberrypi (I have B, B+ & 2). I found http://www.raspberrypi.org/fuse-a-zx-spectrum-emulator-running-on-raspberry-pi/, as well as a reference to http://www.raspberrypi.org/raspbian-chameleon-remix/ Fuze – a ZX Spectrum emulator running on Raspberry Pi | Raspberry Pi At the celebrations for the BBC Micro’s 30th birthday on Sunday (more on…
