Going this way, going that way, and not really making it far in either direction.
Introduction
Microsoft ASP.NET developer by day, Linux user by night, I live in two worlds that sometimes doesn't seem compatible.

When I started with Linux, I gave myself a mission; to be able to do everything I do in Windows, but in Linux instead.  That is accomplished, now what?

I play table-top Role Playing Games (DnD 3.5/Pathfinder) we we are able to all get together.  Trying to get a World of Darkness game (Hunters), where you are mortal and all you try to do is ... survive! yikes!

I am a Board Member to the Danbury Area Computer Society (http://www.dacs.org) and was formerly the Linux SIG leader (now I am just fairly involved with it).
Bragging rights
Had a consultant say "I hate you". (the reason being that we were working together on a project and I had to admit I learned everything, (EVERYTHING), regarding software & technology on my own and was picking up things very quickly)
Work
Occupation
ASP.NET developer for a small financial non-profit, quasi-state company.

My Cr-48 was great, until the screen was stepped on and its cracked.

Is the $90 screen replacement in Amazon the best deal?

On a positive note, my daughter spent her hard-earned money and got herself a Toshiba Chromebook, but she won't let me touch it. ;)  I think she's afraid she won't get it back...

(p.s. I don't know WHAT is going on with the link's attached photo)

How about I get you an original cr48 screen with an attached computer laptop, fully installed and working. Ie. I'll sell you a cr48 for $65!

I know I want to be noticed, but not necessarily in this way.

On the other hand, what if EVERY Linux user visited the sites to get on the NSA's naughty/nice list?  Then picking one person out of everybody gets that much more difficult.

Some can even be done on the Chrome browser
OMG! Chrome!
I've been using Chromebooks for several years now, but even I continue to learn of new ways of getting more from it, from simple time-saving tips to keyboard shortcuts that speed up my workflow.

Since the Raspberry Pi has only 1 NIC, if I wanted to use it as a firewall or network bridge is there a way to hook up the GPIO to a network connector or is a USB dongle the only option?

I am thinking of a wired network connection, rather than wireless.

Windows has some qualities, but I find more stability and comfort working with Linux (Ubuntu and otherwise).

(whoops! put "Windows" where I was trying to put "Linux" and it totally changed the meaning of my post! yikes!)
