i dont know whether you guys still remember this, or ever used this :D . But i found one at my house. the base box gave me an idea that i should build my raspberry pi's case around it. since the box is a little bigger than the raspi board, it simply provide me with an ample room to incorporate a 16x2 display into it. now i no longer need to plug it into my tv to get the ip address like before
everything is left in open air. with cable going on every side of the board
now it is much easier is my router somehow assign new ipAddress to my Raspberry Pi.
