Pluto is the Roman God of the underworld, not a planet
History prior to arriving to UCC
Pluto was Bob's desktop box, then Bob's fiddling server, then Bob's foot rest...so don't be too concerned about blowing it up.
UCC machine history
Was donated after the Great Storm of Perth to replace Coblet, which got the brunt of the rain on the projects bench.
Current machine tasks
Projects bench machine. [BOB] will hunt down and slowly torture anyone who uses it for gaming.
Current software configuration

Useful utilities installed
- EagleCAD (trail version)
- Tortoise SVN
- AVR studio with winAVR

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
Celeron 1.7GHz, 512MB RAM, 200GB Hard Disk
Future plans for the machine
Install more useful utilities on it to configure microcontrollers with.
[BOB] for the donation
