Tob, any luck yet with new or improved galvanic computational engynes?
To a degree.
You said something about getting a redhat [?] computer....wait it was Raspberry
Twas indeed. My brother goes thru a lot of silicon and I salvage his jetsam. He got into a deal and came out of it with a spare Raspberry Pi, the B+ model, and he had no use for it. Merry Christmas to me. Came with a case, power supply, wifi dongle, and an Arduino Uno clone [Hax hax hax]. Totally sweet, but I need a few more components.
Got a kewl wireless keyboard in the GF's family gift exchange. It's gloss black and matches the Pi case. Going to name this computer "Baby Voodoo", a little brother to my old Black Voodoo monster, and use it for high weirdness on the wild frontier.
Baby Voodoo still needs a boot disk and a monitor. I am waiting for the after holiday sales to pick up an HDMI monitor; ought to be able to grab a nice one for under $100. As for Baby's new pair of shoes, apparently I am not going to be able to jam BSD onto it, so I'll probably go with Raspbian (Debian for Raspberries) until I figure out what I really want.
Other features include, but are not limited to, an 8GB Hello Kitty flash drive shaped like her head and paws so that when plugged in she looks like she's peeking over the edge of the Raspberry.
Also still need to come up with a Baby Voodoo logo.
