some new toys

Strange formatting warning...cut and paste from Facebook, but lots of spaces added! 2 oops 3 new Orange Pi's picked up from post drop, had to pay some duty on one...almost as much as it cost, ironically the cheapest one...but still

crazy silly little Orange Pi Zero Plus 2 512Mb machine with onboard 8Gb eMMC memory.... this thing is tiny, has wifi on board, but works better with an expansion board to provide usb connections,
And an Orange Pi Win Development Board A64 Quad-core,
Which even as it was arriving here, was replaced by a new 2Gb version, but I won't be buying that yet.
These OPi's keep coming out faster than I can collect them... Shame the software support for them is utterly terrible. Going to experiment with Armbrian on these soon and see what they can do.
Oh I forgot last week I also picked up a "normal" Opi Zero H2 model with an expansion board and tiny case....crazy!
I'm going to start getting all these various machines hooked up to a central server system and have them be my household controller units....or just write shit games on them.
But for now I have to continue with the book, so they will go on the shelf for a couple of weeks.
