Zooko - I have a laptop running ubuntu that should work well. I've run a
couple nodes on it. You can definitely use it for the demo!
> Hey folks:
> If you are in San Francisco this weekend, come to CodeCon!
> I'll be presenting Tahoe at 13:15 on Saturday, April 18.
> By the way, I was originally planning to borrow an old Pentium 133
> laptop from Brian, show it operating as one of the storage servers in
> the live demo (live demos are a requirement of presentations at
> CodeCon), and then smash it to pieces with an axe.
> The demo would then proceed to show how the files can still be
> accessed by using the remaining storage servers (which are also
> laptops, sitting visible on stage with me).
> However, Brian can't get his P133 laptop to boot because the CMOS
> battery is dead so it can't find its hard drive at boot time.
> Hopefully he can get it to boot from cd and we can install Tahoe on it.
> If that doesn't work, does anyone else have a computer which is
> powerful enough to run Tahoe, unloved enough to be sacrificed for a
> greater cause, and flimsy enough to satisfyingly splinter under assault?
