I thought the idea in fitting a NAS into a toaster is that you plugged the disks through the bread slots!

Imagine a backup-product like the various 'one-touch' backup offerings -- but in this case, you just push a drive into the toaster slot -- it begins the backup process, when done, it can eject** the drive. That sounds very sweet.

**-raise drive, not physically throw it out of the toaster! :)

How's this hold up in a heavy sea? Data corrupt, read errors as you pound to weather could be a problem. Also where's the view of the light show, I wanted to see those led's flashing and shining thru the bread slots. A hollow-graphic hula girl shining a-top the slots would be a motivational feature.

Sounds like an amazing way to hide something.
Possibly make it so 1 of the slots work, and insulate the computer from the heat? Forcing a shutdown if the toaster is actually used. All wireless of course. :)

Ha. My brother used to put waffles in our VCR, and yet it still lived. A protected compuer would be fine.
