Shrdlu brought in a really cool looking toaster - a classic
chrome, dome top, two slice pop-up style. The toaster itself was not
working but it was a beautiful case. Dog had a single board computer (SBC)
that that was just begging to be mounted inside.
Once Dog started, the Lab turned into a dedicated construction facility.
Tools, metal scraps, electronics parts and cables were everywhere. A
Dremel was used to shape the metal brackets and he used a butane soldering
iron to custom make cables and connectors.
The toaster was on display at Defcon 9 during the Coffee Wars event and
was featured on TechTV.
The following are the specs for the toaster: P233MMX Mobil Pentium, 32Meg
RAM, 2.5Gig HD, 1.44 floppy, 10bT Ethernet, SVGA, USB, PS2 Mouse, PS2
Keyboard, PC104 connector, Slackware 7.0 (2.2.13 Kernel) Linux
