    I also had a piece of cardboard with 'Computer' written on it at one point. Linux really will run on anything.

    Who the hell voted yes to it being unusual???

    I do this all the time until I've tested it and it's running ok!

    And then sometimes, if it's running and i'm being lazy, it just sits there running like that for a while, the airflow is good :P

    There used to be a computer mounted on a lump of wood with a perspex case over it here. It had all the components spread out so you could see all the parts. It was used in teaching IIRC.
