Default A Tale of Two Geodes: AMD PIC pictured

On December 6th I got 2 Geode systems. A mini-itx system came in the mail and I also purchased an AMD PIC (personal internet computer) from the local phone company. Monday was the first day the PIC was available in Anguilla and I bought the first one. The PIC has been on slashdot and linuxdevices. It came with a USB-ethernet adapter and a USB-ADSL adapter. The mouse and keyboard are also USB (very sensible).
My goal was to make a linux system with no moving parts. It seems that fans and disks are the causes of most failures. Linux has JFFS2, a flash filesystem with compression. I bought 2 GB of flash on Amazon for only $148. For some applications you don't need a really fast CPU and 2GB with compression is enough space. So a system with no moving parts is reasonable today.
