Hello from India.
I have just received my Rasspbery Pi and have been waitng for it for a long time.
Ordered it from Kitsnspares for 2750 INR with shipping it cost me around 3000.
I have also recieved my San Disk Ultra 8GB Class 10 SDHC Card
Used win32diskimager-binary.zip to write the 2012-08-16-wheezy-raspbian.zip image to the SDHC Card.
Inserted the card in the RPi attached my Keyboard, Mouse to usb ports , hooked up to my benq hdmi display and done it was up and running.
Well this is sort of my first encounter with the board.
