Re: [osgc] My Raspberry Pi has arrived.

I was desperate for a card the other day and went into Woolies... they
actually had them on special and apparently the cards they sell (the
4gb one is good) work particularly well with raspberry pi.

Was woken up this morning at eight by DHL re-delivering my Raspberry Pi.  I think I will take it down to the space later today and have a play with it however I forgot the need for an SD card and I do not have a HDMI cable (I should have ordered these when I ordered my second Raspberry Pi and it probably would of cost about the same as I paid because I would of go free shipping) so was wondering where is the cheapest place to get an SD card from and what size and speed should I get?  I plan on making my Raspberry Pi into a media server for my parents so not much content should be stored on the SD card with most of it on an external HDD.  Umart has some Class 10 SD cards (I am guessing the higher the class the faster it is) in both 16gb and 32gb for what seem reasonable prices but the price of the HDMI cables is too much compared to online/ebay (would probably find cheaper SD cards on ebay as well).
