Tonight I finished a present for my wife. A wireless picture frame based on FreeBSD.
The frame is running on an old Sony VAIO PCG-505TS that I had from many years ago. Its battery is nearly shot, good only now for powering the BIOS battery. However, I put in a solid state disk and a subset of FreeBSD. It now displays pictures from a directory on our home network in rotation.
The hardest part turned out to be how to securely mount the laptop into the picture frame.
I'll describe the software that I used in the coming days. For now, just this little teaser.
