I recently purchased a RaspberryPi and it got me hooked for the last couple of days. I was just curious to know what you guys do with your Pi's if you had bought them?

I've got to get one of those. This site has some cool looking projects. I'd like to build the Pandora player. The tabletop MAME player is awesome.

I'm just trying to set a couple of these RasPi's as home servers. I'm planning to get another two more and stack it up with an 8GD memory cards and install mongoDB.

You could try running your own space project...

I've read about this and looks like a daring fun attempt using the Pi and a poor teddy!

I use one as a home Media Streamer running OpenELEC. I stream over a network from an old computer I hacked into a NAS using NAS4Free. It's a very cheap but very effective setup.

What do you normally do with your home media streamer? I have never heard about it? Looks interesting though!

I have archived a lot of my old VHS and DVD's that I have into video files. I put them on the NAS and then use the media streamer to watch them on the big telly. Happiness!

Interesting. I actually bought two of them and both have been allocated to a specific task. I'm actually considering to get another one and glue it with a cam and use the combo as a dash-cam for my car.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
