[kwlug-disc] Wall wart servers

Wall wart servers are power efficient small servers, with not too much
CPU power or storage. They also beat about anything else for footprint.

However, they can be good for some applications.

For example, I may replace the only desktop in the house with a laptop,
and the print server function of that desktop can easily be handled by one
of those wall wart servers that have USB and Ethernet.

Or, with a wall wart server that has eSATA, a cheap NAS can be setup.

Any other cool implementations?
