Beagle Board

I am starting this thread so that we can use it as a central location for discussing the Beagle Board and any projects, etc.

If you use a Beagle Board in a project post a link here.

Here are some resource links.

looking for a plastic distributor near you.  We have a Regal plastics here and they have a scrap bin with all sizes of lexan and acrylic cut-offs they sell pretty cheap.
Home Depot or Lowes should have acrylic (plexiglass) and polycarbonate (lexan) sheets in about that size, and can even do some trimming down to size on their cutters. Typically in the window section. Polycarb works much better for me, acrylic seems to splinter some.
Id love to own a cnc router. You can get the parts for an open source one easily enough, i will dig out the link for you later. 
Sweet. I was just posting to the Ubuntu forums trying to see if anyone knew.

OK, I placed another order for some parts. Going to get started on an idea. Now I need a better way to cut plexiglass. I wish I knew someone with a lathe or whatever it is they use to cut plexiglass. Not an original idea, just going to see about building a portable platform. 

Does Ubuntu come with a virtual keyboard? 

wonder if i can get into the mech labs at school and talk someone into cutting some stuff out for me. 

straight lines the scoring it with a ruler then snapping it might work, i dont have a lot of experience in that area though. 

 

 

yep ! Ubuntu has one ( I know cause I had to use it for a month w/o one :P that sucked )

Is awesome.
