HP T510 Internet Radio


System spec:
Installation: Tiny Core Plus
CPU: Via Eden 1GHz
SSD: 1GB IDE Flash Module
RAM: 2GB DDR3
Wifi: Broadcom BCM43228


I had a Thin client lying around and I wanted a Internet Radio in my kitchen. The radio hooked to the kitchen speakers has a bad antenna so I figured
to get a cheap USB powered FM-transmitter to let the Thin Client communicates with the old Radio.
This Thin Client has a 1GB IDE Flash Module... a storage capacity insufficient to install Windows so I thought A Great way to learn Tiny Core :P
I asked my questions on this form and the support was awesome...

Great thanks to Juanito, Misalf, gerald_clark, coreplayer2, curaga, patrikg and polikuo for helping me out.  ;) 8) :o
