My try at Raspberry Pi. Off to a slow start.

I just got a birthday gift from my parents; a Raspberry Pi Computer!! I put the box together, plugged in the OS SD card, dongle for my keyboard/mouse, DVI/HDMI cable, and power, and it started up. Unfortunately the keyboard is not being liked. One key-press, for example ‘a’, results in up to 20 ‘a’s being entered. I didn’t realize how bad it was until after I changed the default password. I don’t think the password entered as expected, so now I am locked out before I even got in. Fortunately there are ways around this. I just have to wait until the morning when I can borrow a simple USB keyboard and try again. The morning can not come soon enough.
