Funny, I always pictured you in a "2001 A Space Odyssey" like room filled with mainframes and banks of DVD players and loading bays backed in with semi's full of recordable media. Your wife banging on the soundproof glass, calling you to a cold dinner.
Why would you want that dinky little thing?

No glass. But actually, I can hear her calling, and eventually screaming because the food is getting cold.
So she has to pry my fingers away from the keyboard

I've belonged to Sachs Marine Aquarium site for a couple years (you have to see his marine aquarium to believe it) and people post pictures of their computer setups. It is interesting and seems to give the group a more 'human' aspect.

As this groups founder and chief guru, Kwag, .................................

No
I didn't get it, because they told me they haven't tried Linux on that board
So I told them I would go there tomorrow with a copy of Knoppix, and try it out on a machine.
So we'll have to wait until tomorrow afternoon for the result.
If it does work, I walk out the store with one, with a 2GHz Celeron which is more than enough power for the purpose of the machine.
