I'm hoping for a SD card slot as well, although USB would do it. Make
that two USB ports. One for this and a spare. For config backup and a
bit of storage for the extras.
Wonderful back pocket toy. Some versions/models have a GB or more on
board as well - looks like two drives. Enough for a computer on a
stick distro in a pinch. And a place to put the data.
I'm also hoping for an eSata port. a la central network / media
storage port. Or for that on board web / ftp server in a DMZ.
Sometimes convergence gives me a head ache with the possibilities.
Which is part of why I pay attention to the OpenWRT and the like
threads. (And I'm always looking for good diagnostic tools to put in
the tool chest.)
