The type of styling is actually quite similar, come to think of it! :D

The interesting thing here though is that the JavaStation-10 actually predated the 320/540 by about two years! (It may have, in a way, even served as the initial design inspiration for the Visual Workstation's exterior design, who knows)

Indeed interesting! Talking about a consensus among people that cannot have any knowledge of the history of art or any education regarding taste and aesthetic sensibility looks like a group of babies during the anal phase.

The Agenda VR3 Developer edition. It's a PDA with the MIPS-compatible CPU. It runs Linux and the actual X11 (the XFree86). It's the one on the left.

Nice, makes an extra small serial terminal for occasional operations. :) Many years ago I used Pocketerm on my Palm M105 for a while, e.g. to follow the boot process of my Enterprise 3500 or to access some Cisco switches, etc..

The Agenda is too precious to be frequently used. I have a bunch of Palm III devices for these uses. I use a program "Palm Telnet" exactly for this purpose (it can work as a serial terminal, among other uses).

I just bought a cheap and nasty PTZ camera off ebay.

https://www.ebay.ca/itm/Mini-Outdoor-AH ... 2749.l2649

It was something like $80CDN, I'm willing to bet it's all plastic and the seals will likely fail after a year but I just want something to replace the last RoofCam that lasted barely three months before committing suicide and the X axis gearbox burned itself up.

My dad used to own an Agenda, back when he ran Slackware for his day-to-day work. IIRC he ended up not using it when he got a Palm Treo 180 (I think?). He's gone back to Windows 10 and macOS now.

A bunch of Raspberry Pi goodies. My brother drives an old car, so I'm taking this home and we will build a car computer for him, with GPS, 3G, anti-theft tracking and reading data from the car diagnostics port using a Bluetooth bundle. We will try to pass through door locks and windows using the GPIO and, time and money allowing, using a temperature sensor on the Pi to control the air conditioner automatically.

The second Pi will be my hard VPN token: I log into it via VNC and then join a guest wifi, go though the eventual captive portal, connect to my openvpn and access the internet through it, instead of having my machine on a public network, so I got for it an extra USB Wi-Fi, so I can share access using the Ethernet port or Wi-Fi (or, in case of a place with Ethernet, join the network via Ethernet and share it via Wi-Fi).

His'n'hers Internet. Finally got Spectrum, who bought Time Worthless Cable, to pull RG-59 to the house, and now we have cable Internet. However, the servers are better served (ha!) by staying on the T1, and I'll just leave my computer lab on that same network, so it's effectively his (T1) and hers (cable) networks.
