At Last its arrived

The Raspberry Pi arrived from Farnell this morning 30th May 2012 - I only ordered it in December 2011 - its a bare board and its tiny - I can see this being embedded in loads of devices.
Nothing with it so will have to install from scratch.

Lets take a look at the board from front - assuming Raspberry Pi logo defines rotation of board - So on this side we can see the hdmi port.

Another 90 degrees right and we see the Video, Sound port and the IO Interface

One more 90 degree rotation and we can see the micro usb power port to the bottom right of the picture.

Finally a view of the underside showing the port for the SD card. 2012->2017
