I have wanted to build a DPF for a long time now, and actually started about a year ago with an old dell laptop. Since then I had life take over and I had put that on the back burner for other projects or just day to day life. About 2 months ago I picked up the laptop and tried to start it up with no success.
I did not want to get rid of the laptop so I put it in storage till today, I happened to see it sitting by my desk so I decided to give it another try, and on first try it started up. So now to go download some software and start working on the project.
*I would also love it to be able to pull the pictures off of say Picasa or another service (we currently use Picasa).
I am planning on using Ubuntu as that was what I was originally using.
Stay tuned for more updates on this project.
