Don't bake your Raspberry Pie :-P

At a fellow hams place, whose Raspberry Pi wasn't working all day...

I see it on his router, and pick it up, and damn near burned my hand right off my wrist haha.

Thermal shutdown of the CPU. Unplugged it and let it cool down for 10 minutes, then plugged back in and it booted just fine.

hehehe... baked pie...

This item from PB Tech may prevent your fingers getting burnt in the future,

Its for the Pi 2 and Pi 3

Its a little expensive and I don't know if there are similar (and cheaper) items on other sites such as TradeMe
