It looks like a fun geek toy. For $30 you get all the guts of a computer that you can get creative on a case for. Tupperware, wood, an Altoids tin, the pocket of your shirt, maybe some of the really creative cases they have come out with for iPods and iPhones. Personally I like the retro looks
Retro Cases

Then I was looking at the keyboard/mouse options. Little keyboards like cell phones use, wifi, wireless, bluetooth. I especially like the ones with Air Mouse options.
USB Keyboard/Mouse

I like Linux anyway. There are a lot of fun little portable things that could plug into one of these.

This thread stimulated me to go have a look. It seems like the minimal practical "starter kit" work out at US$100...

Have you thought of starting breeding from the pair?
That sounds about right if you need all the components.

There are many alternative super cheap computers available too. Like those Android sticks which I heard can be made run Ubuntu.

Well if anyone wants to try it, go for it. If they can speak code and ask nice in a non-insulting manner they can even get help. I saw some great conversations between Johan and various groups. One I remember was a PandoraBox group trying to get Dom3 to run on their portables.

I'm interested. I was using an Eeepc for hosting but the little fan eventually started complaining about the 24/7 workload.

I've installed the latest PiBang server edition (no DE) and I've copied all my saved games and scripts across.

Now I'm at the point where I can't get the executable to run:

zsh: exec format error: dom3_x86

and:

zsh: exec format error: dom3_amd64

I assume this will need a new compile for the ARM Architecture.

If someone is willing to help that would be fantastic.
