Re: WW: Colo Vending Machine

I have, on occasion been away from my laptop and gotten the call to go to the colo and deal with XYZ hardware problem 
and the colo was either: A in the opposite or orthogonal direction from  my house and significantly closer or B the 
colo was between my present location.

In such cases, I will occasionally stop by the colo without going home to retrieve the laptop. 90% of the time it works 
out OK. 10% of the time I end up leaving the colo, going home, retrieving the laptop and returning to the colo. 
Obviously, if there was a loaner laptop available for a $15 rental in the colo as described, it would probably be worth 
$15 to me and/or my organization to avoid the delay and bother of the round-trip between colo and home.

Do you guys ride your bike to the colo and show up in shorts and a t-shirt? Who goes to the colo without things like 
their laptop?

Please post your top 3 favorite components/parts you'd like to see in a
vending machine at your colo; please be as specific as possible; don't
let vendor specificity scare you off.

atom based 10" laptop with serial interface and cable. $15 day charge would rock!

4 Port 10/100/1000 hub. $20?

USB sticks  2/4/8GB

Cage nuts various common sizes.

Vending machine should double as wireless AP with open Internet access $5 should give you AP code and min 8 hour 
access time.
