If you are using a UNIX Operating system, you need to use a UNIX Keyboard: Sun Type 6 USB.
It has the right curvature (i.e. seen from the side, the keyboard is concave, not flat) so you can easily press the F-keys without lifting your wrists = no wrist pains.
It has Meta & Compose keys.
And it has the extra X11 keys on the left - that you can xmodmap to your liking.
If you use a keyboard with a Windows key sitting between Ctrl & Alt, you are NOT a True UNIX Sysadmin.
Good luck finding one
After a bit of Google Image Search i think i found out the answer:
Those are Xtronix PoE adapters and are used to power the RPis
Notice how each RPi without this card is connected using a MicroUSB to MicroUSB cable to a nearby RPi who does have this card.
That's stupid and wasteful:
1) They are using a big honking switch with PoE in the back - those are expensive.
2) Powering the next RPi using USB backfeed going over two fuses will ensure that that second RPi gets undervolted and will be very unstable. They could at leas bridge the 5V GPIO pins between the RPIs, not use USB Backfeed.
The article doesn't have any details about the extra hardware that's connected to the RPi boards.
From the low-res picture, you can see that in each 8-RPi unit, all Pis have a "PiGlow" connected and 4 of the 8 Pis have an extra network card (or another device with a RJ54 cable) plugged in the GPIO slot (with a pass-trough for the PiGlow)
Anyone knows what device is that ?
They already have Apple Developer accounts that they use to publish all those apps in the iOS App Store. So Google Legal is okay with those terms.
And it's not some unknown developer, it's Google for fsck's sake. I bet if they just email Apple they'll instantly get a key.
The Mac OS X version is a unsigned binary. On the newer OS X versions you have to go to System Preferences -> Security & Privacy to allow-it to run.
Looks like Google was too cheap to shell $99/year for a OS X Developer account and get a developer key to sign a product they asked $399 for.
A bit larger than a dongle but does what you want: Raspberry Pi + any XBMC-based distro
Has HDMI CEC si you can use those "useless" media buttons on your TV's remote to control XMBC, no extra remote needed = you can hide the RPi in the back of the TV.
And the toaster told you it means Internet of Toasters, right ?
The Karpen Pile, currently on display at the Dimitrie Leonida National Technical Museum in Bucharest, Romania, still gives out 1V after 60 years.
This one has a glass enclosure so it can be studied.
The cover artwork is nice, but i like the cover style of his "Absolute
My company is currently hiring Unix sys-admins in US. I'm part of the team doing the interviews. Out of over a dozen applicants until now there was only a single girl.
3.5 Mhz Z80 Sinclair Spectrum FTW !

Data needed to compute the life expectancy of this aerostat:
- What kind of riffle is needed for a bullet to reach this high and how many persons arond that area own such a riffle ?
- What is the gas flow trough a bullet hole caused by the above riffle ?
I see the book price in the provided Amazon link as US$ 48.10 for the Paperback version.
Everyone sees the same price ?
Slashdot has given us a Amazon link - let's investigate if we get a lower or higher price when accesing the link from Slashdot as compared to other ways.
