Coblet was thrown in the bin during a fit of rage at some point in 2011, or possibly 2010, by [BOB]. It has been replaced with the stupidly named Combto
Coblet is a combination of the names Cobbler and Velvet, two computers who got together and had a good time. While coblet isn't technically a fish, the name definitely sounds fishy. Also aptly named for being cobbled together from parts.
How/where the machine was obtained
Built in UCC out of spare parts, most of which came from Cobbler and Velvet (both long dead).
Current machine tasks
Projects Bench computer. [BOB] will hunt down and slowly torture anyone who uses it for gaming.
Current software configuration
Debian Lenny, and WinXP
Useful utilities installed
- EagleCAD (trail version)
- Tortoise SVN
- AVR studio with winAVR
- Minicom, Microcom, and Picocom (linux serial communication programs)

It is not a secure computer, and isn't on the ucc domain - so don't expect it to be safe to do your personal banking on
Current hardware configuration
Athlon XP, 512MB RAM, 40GB hard disk
Future plans for the machine
Install more useful utilities on it to configure microcontrollers with.
[FEL] for donating a screen and screen protector, [BOB] for building it and setting it up
