    We can look at our new website on the BIG TV, using a Raspberry Pi perched on the back. Have a look if you are interested. Don't poke too much, it depends on a micro-SD card and if you knock it out it will be difficult to find.

    Please let me know what you would like to do.


    Questions I have been asked are 

    1. Why is my computer/laptop so slow.

    2. Could I use a Raspberry Pi as a home computer. 

    Come and find out, possibly!  Don't expect miracles!

    At the recent Executive Committee we talked about our need to improve discussion between shed members of problems they may have. Hopefully solutions and suggestions from shed members may help.

    We thought moving the check-in chat to later in the day may help draw in more people , so we are combining this with Morning Tea - get chatting!
