Ceci n'est pas une personne.

I've got a horn, and I'm going to toot it.

A couple online sites using my images (with my poermission)...

Last week an ad agency for The Hilton here in Bellevue was offering to buy one of my pictures, but they disappeared into the vapor.

What I want....

A simple small LCD display, like you might see on a pager, has an ethernet interface (or USB), runs off of PoE (or a USB connection), and has a built in batter to keep running when it loses power, it can be controlled over the network (or USB), and costs under $5 each.

Right now we have to drive to the data center and relabel computers every time their names or ip addresses change. I would like an LCD I could stick to the rack, next to the computer, use that as the system name tag. We change systems names and addresses remotely, it would be nice if we could do the same with the system labels.
