Just spent an hour stripping down my WB28cdi to replace the diaphragm. Wouldn't have dared to tackle it without your excellent guide, so many thanks. Off to bed and then rebuilding in the morning. I may leave a different comment tomorrow if it doesn't go back together again Excellent stuff, thanks.

Amazing concept, thanks for sharing it

However I didn't get how you deal with unexpected broadcast ethernet packets, they would normally be repeated on all ports of the switch, wouldn't they ?

Unless the use of VLANs prevents broadcast packets to be repeated on all existing VLANs. Is that so ?

Admin reply: Got it in one! That's one of the benefits of VLANs - they limit the size of broadcast domains. In this case, my control ports are in their own respective VLANs hence are completely untroubled by anything else that happens on the network. ...Mathew

I would probably do it with one of those cheap Wal*Mart Linux warts and USB, but I love the idea. I was most interested in the cat door, allowing "authorized purr-sonel only" access.

Admin reply: Heh, nice one Don't give up the day job though Bill! ...Mathew

Excellent idea, the layout slightly resembles my old XJ6 both in wiring and detail solutions.

Keep the good work up!

Admin reply: Thanks! XJ6 you say? I'll take that as a compliment, I think! ...Mathew

I would like to expand this idea, and build a USB version of this. I will keep you posted if I decide to make this happen, possibly there could be a market for something like this.

Admin reply: Yeah, there are many ways to skin this... err.. cat. Do post back if you get anywhere! ...Mathew
