Apple iMac – 27″ Unibody

A refurbished 27″ iMac with Intel’s Core i7 chip. The display on this computer is amazing.

Asus Eee PC 1000HA

I’ve had this netbook since mid-2009. It sits next to my HF radio so I can log contacts. I’m going to keep it until it fails.

Raspberry Pi (Various Models/Versions) (Qty 5)

The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card-sized single-board computer developed in the UK by the Raspberry Pi Foundation with the intention of promoting the teaching of basic computer science in schools.

Linksys WRT54G (Qty 2)

Linksys released the WRT54GL in 2005 to support third-party firmware based on Linux, after the original WRT54G line was switched from Linux to VxWorks, starting with version 5. The WRT54GL is technically a reissue of the version 4 WRT54G.

I use these things as routers, firewalls, and wireless bridges.

OBi100 VoIP Telephone Adapter and Voice Service Bridge

The OBi100 has one phone port. It supports Google Voice, SIP & OBiTALK VoIP services. Use the OBi100 when you do not need an analog line to a traditional telephone network or service. The OBi100 is perfect for customers who do not have a traditional telco phone service and want the savings and simplicity of using a VoIP service for all their calls.

I have this thing wired into my home’s old traditional telco circuit and configured to use Google Voice.
