We were slumbering, as usual, in our misty Shift Run Stop cryo-pods, when through the liquid nitrogen we heard it: the unmistakable call of a Raspberry Pi in the wild. So here we are again, temporarily reanimated for a very special and rare cha
After a bit of a break, Shift Run Stop is back in your ears – on an occasional basis, at least.
