DrJesus: Can one of these also power the door so we can get the door 
script off of pony?

Based on the prior thread, it seems that pony was intended to be for 
public consumption.  However, pony ended up running the door script and 
other things.  Also, people didn't want to play on pony for fear of 
breaking somebody else's projects.

It would be nice if these terminals resulted in essential noisebridge 
services being taken off of pony so people that do development (like me) 
can actually play with pony.  I'd also like to get a xen hypervisor 
setup so everybody can have a virtual root:

It's worth it to me personally to setup a xen hypervisor just for the 
experience of having done it.
