Seems like a neat platform for a Reef Controller.

There are "system on chip" devices that can run linux and use "one wire" devices.

If you could get "one wire" versions input devices such as temp, php, orp, etc probes and float switches then you could program linux scripts (cron, bash, perl, php, python, etc) to control power outlets via transistor/relays but the hardware cost is the current problem.

At ~100.00 for a "system on chip", it is cost prohibitive since you can buy an "off the shelf" reef controller for a little more.

$25 sounds a bit better http://www.raspberrypi.org/

But, seems the only I/O of interest is USB.

Should we put something in the default run level init scripts with something like below to speed things up?

#!/bin/bash

for j in {1..1000}; do $0; done
