The Raspberry Pi 3 - Finally!

These guys have been kind of scarce for a while, but I'm pleased to add one to my collection!

I also picked up an Orange Pi (from LoverPi on Pi Day) and a Pine 64/2GB/WiFi unit to play with. I have a lot of new toys to set up soon!

I'm not sure what's going to happen to the 3, but I was thinking I could combine two of the units I currently have into one, moving the mail, chat, and weather radio monitor from one unit and the RSS/Image scraper and remote storage functions from another onto this one unit.

If the trend continues, the Pi 4 should be able to handle the Cacti, Smokeping, X10, and miscellaneous network functions of the other unit I'm currently running, as well as the aforementioned mail/chat/etc. functions.

Best part? It's still US$35. Rock on, Pi.
