He didn't get where he is today by stealing somebody else's catchphrase.

I Made A Thing.

I've been using my Pi Model-A as a simple car "radio" for nearly eighteen months now and it's required zero maintenance, apart from an occasional content update. I'd call that a success. It's simplicity is its strength, it's outlived one car already.

If there's one thing I like about the Raspberry Pi community, it's the way in which everyone shares their knowledge. For that reason, I've decided to make my RavensPi SD Card image available for others to use and abuse. All you need to get going is some audio. I've slimmed it down as much as possible and it now weighs in as a 327MB download, nearly a third of a new Wheezy image. I've also created a "Projects" page, which gives you further information on how you can customise it for your own use - and if you learn something from the experience, that can't be bad.

The standard disclaimer applies - I'm providing an image for your Pi, nothing else. If your house burns down, you're struck by a meteorite or you start thinking the Daily Mail is quality journalism, then it's not my fault. You're on your own. Don't start running life-critical systems with it, mmmkay?

You can find details on my RavensPi project here. Have fun with it - and let me know what you create with it!
