Thanks for the suggestion Lee. I'm hoping to future proof myself for
another 8 years if I can manage it.
So what I really like about the WRAP board is that it's completely
silent, with no moving parts. Durable, low power, yet it does what I
need without any problems. I can't even remember when I bought that
board, but it's been rock solid for a long long time, probably eight
years? About when I joined the m0n0wall list for the first time, and
I had the board then.
Anyway, it's time to replace it with, ideally, something just as power
efficient, quiet and with no moving parts. I'm really liking the new
PC-engines APU board, assuming it will work reliably, and it $140 plus
power supply and case, it's not too bad, esp over 8 years.
