It's more fun to compute

last track  - "It's more fun to compute"

Ah, Computer World, by Kraftwerk. The last track is titled "It's more fun to compute". I'm thinking Hutter, Schneider and Bartos must have written this song in November, after raking and blowing leaves for a few days... All joking aside, I hope you have this album on your ipod.

So what is it exactly that makes computing more fun? More fun than what, I hear you ask... What do you think, is it more fun to compute?

If you've gone through the PyHack workshop #01, you already installed mercurial (hg). If not, you will need to install it on your Raspberry Pi before you can get the code:

pi@raspberrypi ~/Desktop $ sudo apt-get install mercurial
