Do you want to expand your knowledge of Raspberry Pi? If you do, this book is for you. Author Richard Wentk, has done an outstanding job of writing a book that helps you get started with your Raspberry Pi. Author Wentk, begins by listing everything you might need to set up your Raspberry Pi, including the essential extras and how to connect them to your Pi. Next, the author shows you the recommended OS: Rasbian Wheezy; and, how to use it. In addition, he shows how to set change your password, select a keyboard layout to match the keyboard you are using, set a time zone, and set up the memory card. The author also talks you through the setting up of the basic set of preinstalled desktop applications, in order to finish setting up your Pi. Then, he continues by showing you how to use Raspberry Pi’s Linux operating system. The author then shows you how to use the full power of Linux by learning how to work with files and commands in creative ways. Next, he shows you how to control your Pi remotely, share files, set up a web server, send e-mails, and even put your Pi on the Internet. In addition, the author shows you how you can produce sound and video with Raspberry Pi. He also introduces you to Scratch: Which is an easy-to-learn toy programming language for kids. Then, the author shows you how to use Python: Which is a good tool for general programming, including basic game development. Next, he shows you how to save time by creating reusable blocks of code. The author continues by introducing you to Pygame: Which adds a selection of game-ready modules to Python; and, makes it easy to create games without having to reinvent code that has already been written. He then shows you how to combine Pygame’s basic features with the standard features of Python to create simple games. Finally, the author shows you how to begin using your Pi for small projects that combine electronic add-ons, Linux, Python, and a web server. This excellent book also includes extra Pi connections that you can use in your own electronic projects. However, you must add these extras yourself.

"Well... wrong. She's alive and ur talking to her right now. I am snowy. I came back to you from starclan. I forgot my whole life! But owlheart my brother showed me. If you dont beleive me look." She pulled her bangs back and showed her daughter the scar just above her eye where her head shattered against the boulder when she slipped backwards into the ditch. Then she showed her the torn fur where the bone cut through skin when she broke her leg in the same fall. "I was too young to have you. I almost died remember? Its me. No one else. Its me. I promise to never leave you again. I came back for you." A tear fell from her eye. "My last kit. Out of 5 kits. You are the one that stayed."

He limps in, quick as he could with his displaced leg. He sees Dizzykit, Ravenpaw, and Darkkit and runs over. He sees the blood and quickly starts to take off his splint to use the cobwebs. He puts the sticks aside and starts wrapping the cobwebs around the little kit, Darkkit, with a sad face upon him. -Elre &perp PS I go to the bathroom and I come back to someone yelling at me to come here...not exactly fun
