I'd like to know if there are any books, online guides, or software that would help in designing a device that would accept some flavor of linux. I really don't want to go "off the shelf", but I need something that can at least display graphics, respond to positional input, and play sound. Also, is there a good place to have all of these components put together once I have a finalized design? I'd really hate to hand solder so much." top
jessecurry writes "As computers are becoming more and more prevalent to society and sites like Wikipedia are taking over the task of cataloging all human knowledge our information is being stored in digital format. I often hear concerns over back up formats, but what if we were to experience data loss on a larger scale? If there were some natural phenomenon that erased all hard disks and back-up media. Would we be in for another dark age? What if this event occurred 50 years from now? What steps could be taken to insure that this wouldn't happen?"

I'm going to be embarking on a journey of epic proportions. A journey that will take me to the ends of the world... and to every Hooters.
That's right, I'll be on the World Wide Wing Tour, visiting every Hooters in the world, writing reviews, sampling beers, and logging all of my travel.
Take a look at the site for some information about the tour and see how we're doing with the fundraising effort so far.
