Yes, but the Rasberry Pi won't directly be the Pirate Box it will be an addition, it is going to be a larger scale mesh-net project. The idea of creating a mobile mesh-net server of sorts using the primary ideas and design behind a Pirate box. The wife and I don't expect it to work the way we are thinking, but the cost of the Rasperry Pi makes this an experiment too hard to pass up.

No I actually didn't because I know what a Pirate box is, I didn't feel the need to click the link. I figured you were just calrifying that I meant what you thought. Since I knew that I knew what I meant that you thought I didn't click.

Damn what a mind bender that statement was. ;)

Did either of you pre-order/reserve one? I personally put in a request for a B board from two different vendors.

Yep I've also put a request from both vendors. Hopefully there will be enough for everyone soon.

24/7 home mail server, maybe a webserver for simple pages. What about you and others?
