FreeAgent DockStar + Macintosh SE/30

Pt 10429

Seagate-Freeagent-Dockstar-Network-Adapter 2

This looks cool, the FreeAgent DockStar turns any external USB drive into an Internet-connected storage device, here it is with a Macintosh SE/30 – Google Translate.

The DockStar has 128MB ram, 256MB flash, 1.2GHz cpu and an ARM processor – good for hacking it seems.

  1. Isn’t this a SheevaPlug?

  2. Just seeing that SE/30 takes me back to the laundr-O-mat. I used to put mine in a padded carrying case and take it with me so that I could work while I waited on the machines. 16 lbs of portable. Thanks for sharing that photo. Made my day.
