Hazeltine 1510

Bumped into this recently, thought it might be interesting to post about all the terminals we have. It's a Hazeltine 1510 terminal, one of the many old terminals which reside here.
I think an old terminal such as this would make a great frontend to a project like a robot or a cluster.

Cop Equipment

About a week back we got a shipping pallet of cop equipment. There are hardened computers and laptops, flat panel screens, and data modems.

Panasonic CF-25: Soon to run Damn Small Linux

Pallet with mini-computers and boxes:

Rugged flatpanel:

Data Modem:
There was a box with about 30 of so of these nifty little boxes. They are Sierra Wireless 775 modems, capable of transmitting/receiving data over a cellular data network (I forget which one at the moment), and can pick up gps. They do require a sim card to send data, but at the very least, they will still function nicely as gps receivers.
