    Power over Ethernet

    We have all heard about 120 volt IP but what about this?

    The company I just started with has been using this technology for a while now. Cisco is about the only company that really has this figured out. For instance not sending voltage down a wire to a device that isn't set up for it.

    Another cool device is the KVM over IP, which is essentially a KVM that runs over an ethernet cable. We use alot of these too so we don't have 3 cables for each machine in a rack, just one goes to the KVM for keyboard mouse and monitor.

    I did this once with a mini itx system and a hackers guide to boxes i foget what the box was called but basicly it told you how to build a converter for a phone jack to get 12V wich is all a mini itx system needs to run.
    And a 12V Mini itx power supply.

    And waaaalaaa!

    I'd rather have internet over power.

    Fewer and fewer all the time.
    Which brings up: What do we do to build up the action on linuxfoo.org? I think we need a "Post or your Toast" program. Of course that may not be cool so whatever is gokod but lets DO IT.

    Yeah, its been all but dead around here lately. I guess everyone is just getting busy. Our fearless leader has been uber busy with linuxtracker, that site is looking better and better. As for everyone else, its getting warmer and the geeks are starting to emerge from their caves. I think National Geographic is doing a special on it this month..
