I recently sold an old laptop to a friend with the condition that she give me her old laptop. Mine was too good for this project, being older and rather lacking in features, was a good fit.
This past weekend I finally got down to creating my own Digital Photo Frame.
Some specifications: Laptop – Toshiba Satellite 1005-S153 (I think that’s the model number), 256MB Memory, 16GB hard disk, connected wirelessly to my home network and internet. I’m using the desktop wallpaper swapper from the Winter Funpack 2004. As you can see in the upper right corner, I’m using the Yahoo! Widget Engine to get the current weather information. I may add other useful little widgets later, but for now that’s plenty.
