This review is from: Travelling Salesman (Amazon Video)
The power of mathematics revealed. A science fiction movie with 4 mathematicians sitting in a room talking. Scary stuff.

1.0 out of 5 stars It is like taking money out of the bowl in church or out of the sidewalk santa's bucket on Christmas., March 14, 2016
The complaint here is that the Raspberry Pi is designed by a charity to get computers to disadvantaged young people, unemployed people trying to learn a new trade, to get this hardware into their hands at minimum cost to learn the hardware design and programming of computers. People charging more than the base price are using a charity to make money.

3.0 out of 5 stars I'm writing this to see if anyone can tell me about it., August 23, 2015
I'm writing this to see if anyone can tell me about it. Is this book monolingual in Japanese? The cave manuscripts filled a room, since I see the word Buddha, I assume the texts are from the Buddhist tradition only. Can anyone enlighten me :-) ?
