Okay, so I have no installation yet, really, but I do have a small army of Raspberry Pi’s ready to rumble. Programming, done. They even have a self-test mode that reports the status of all of its subsystems. I even took care of little details like logrotation (if that got you excited, you know you are a sysadmin).
I can plug each one in and it magically boots and becomes a monitor for whatever social network it is watching. Now, I guess I have to get off the fucking computer and do some real work.
Thanks to MCM Electronics for the generous donation of the Raspberry Pis. They were a joy to deal with and I can recommend them heartily.
