Installing Linux on a Toaster?

FortKnox (169099) writes | about 11 years ago

Hardware 15

Well, we all joke about install linux in a toilet, fridge, or toaster, but now someone has successfully put a computer inside a 4-slice toaster. It can't toast anymore, but I'm sure they'll try to add that feature in version 2...
The page has instructions on every step in the project, with pictures included. It doesn't have linux on it (it is running win98).

What's most impressive is that this is his first project.


Submitted. Will be deleted if it gets approved.

Update: Rejected. I honestly thought this was a shoe-in. Maybe someone else already submitted it this morning?

I've already had [slashdot.org] multiple [slashdot.org] trolls in the past.

Dude, if it wasn't for Taco, SexyGal (maybe not), and Wil, FortKnox would be the most popular guy on Slashdot.

Considering how many people there are here, #4 is pretty darn good -- I remember someone once did a relationship plot of the friends, and node #169099 had so many friend lines that it was nearly blotted out. :}

John Carmack is up ahead of me too, iirc.

I haven't kept track for months, though.

Anybody else remember the term 'beige toaster' being applied to Macintoshes? Something tells me he should've used a G4 motherboard. ;)

I can't believe how they abused this poor toaster! They took a perfectly good shiny toaster, killed it, removed its intestines and turned it into a zombie.

Btw: Why doesn't slashdot use UTF-8 by default anymore? It makes my sig look like crap now!

So the computer is in the toaster... (1)

I guess this was one step away from the Apple in the Oven, just in the other direction...

Personally, i think that's a great place to hide your computer, but best to make sure everyone else knows that it isn't a toaster, too. For example, my toaster frequently gets unplugged by people who find they want more space...

I wonder if a house with a server in the dryer, a computer in the toaster, or a server in a fly would be more like what the future's REALLY going to look like. I mean, c'mon, they can make all the fancy-schmancy computers they want; as long as there's duct tape and creativity, factory standards aren't going to be where the fascination lies... Now if they could just make a toaster that gets the TOAST right, that would be something truly miraculous. ( i once had a toaster oven that would burn the toast and then eject it across the room. We put the trash can in the place it usually landed, which worked great till the toast caught fire one day...)

Look at me everyone... (-1, Troll)
