Hi everyone,

So, a friend got me a Raspberry Pi 4 for Christmas!  After some teething 
problems with the power supply and getting a correctly-formatted SD card 
so it can boot, I now have a device with FPC, Lazarus, SVN and git 
installed, and can now develop and test for arm-linux (specifically: 
Broadcom BCM2711, Quad core Cortex-A72 (ARM v8) 64-bit SoC @ 1.5GHz)

Just a minor announcement... means I can run tests on a completely 
different architecture now, which might prove useful for pure 
functions... and, who knows, maybe my own set of peephole optimisations 
for that platform.

Gareth aka. Kit
