Hackaday Links

Keep the links coming in (Seriously, I’m hurtin’ here)

Looks like the skull and crossbones is the new pink. Maybe we should make our logo look like Mr. Yuk to stay ahead of the curve.

FedEx furniture was bouncing around the blogs a couple months ago. Apparantly the company doesn’t want to furnish your apartment. The correction at the end is kinda funny.

Have you checked out the BlackDog Linux usb computer. I think it would come in pretty handy for those of you headed back to school and their inadequate labs.

Last weekend some HAM enthusiasts tired for a WiFi long shot with a weather ballon. It didn’t work so well (they think it was swinging too much) but they’ll be trying again. Good luck! [ed3]

A DS homebrew contest held by the Neo Flash team recently concluded. You can download the thirty entries over at MaxConsole.

Ghetto UV reactive fan. [Neurolizer]

Do you think the feds picked up any new recruits at Defcon? [Bucky]

NetBSD toaster, Hack-A-Day stringer Richard saw it in person [via the Inquirer][jesse off]

If your state isn’t overcast like mine, make sure you catch the Perseids tonight.

  1. That flash based-usb headless comp is pretty cool, would be nice to know if you can run your own choice of distro though, maybe even have a larger capacity like 1 gb and i’ll drop my laptop in a heartbeat for it

  2. i really like damn small… especially the concept of MyDSL. i used to use it at school all the time. its small enought to fit into ram *easily* so i’d just pass the disc around the room and we’d party.

    with linux.


  3. black dog *might* be worth it for a slower computer. i did set up dsl on a thumbdrive, but i gotta say… qemu on an older lappie (233 mhz pentium; don’t laugh, you!) is no black dog. it’s just a dog!

  4. Yes you can add your own distro and the Blackdog has an SD/IO reader for storage expansion and the 50,000 dollar bounty and 5,000 dollar bug hunt doesn’t suck either. It’s a whole computer that fits in one hand and takes over the KVM of the host and no reboot is required and it doesn’t use host memory or processor. Nothing else does this this clean or comes close, it’s damn cool.
