    The author could have done some research on battery packs instead of hacking up a laptop pack as he did. There is a company called that sells multi-cell Li-ion packs with a protection circuit built in. They're not cheap, but they are reasonably safe.

    With the frequency of RPi "articles" on /. one might wonder if there is some payola behind the positive press.

    But not a word is spoken about the ongoing supply chain issues, and resellers making candid statements about it not being worthwhile to try to carry them. Can we have a moratorium on articles that drive up RPi demand until the Foundation can get its supply caught up more with the demand you've already created?

    I just bought 6, delivered next day. What supply problems?

Wasn't there something about a PASCAL programmer knowing the value of everything and the Wirth of nothing?
