I finally got my Raspberry Pi 3 B in the mail yesterday after waiting several weeks to receive it. What is a Raspberry Pi 3 B you ask? Well read this article that I posted about it back on March 2, 2016 for more information. I have re-shared the specs below for this system and pictures of my pi 3.

That said I’m starting a new Raspberry Pi page here at G3K.XYZ to document my trials with my Raspberry Pi 3 B.
