Along with upgrading my Ubuntu install from Hardy Heron to something a little more recent, and getting my NSLU2 to boot again (I made the mistake of trying to boot it off a 500GB disk, and apparently its memory is too small to fsck a volume that large). Ultimately I was planning on having the NSLU2 act as the "scanning box" with OCR and PDF-ificiation happening on a desktop box when said power-thirsty device is switched on.

I'm heading overseas so I won't be needing it until May sometime.

Hi Alex,

That's very generous of you. I would love to have a play with your s1500
for a month or so. Can I come an pick it up somewhere?
