arm boards don't die

joeyh at

Has anyone noticed that arm boards just keep running for aproximately forever? I have now ancient nslu2's, thecus, etc that still run fine, although they're now too old to bother with.

No moving parts, no power supply (just 5v in), barely any capacitors to plague out. Just not much to go wrong. The only arm board I've ever had die was stuck by lightning.

(Compare with laptops which are fully consumable.)

another reason i'd like to move things that are hosted at home to the minipc...

but still stuck with getting npm to work on there
(is there no other way to install the needed nodejs packages?)
