For the Love of Coffee, Gadgets, and Python

Most geeks are familiar with the RasberryPi Project that set out to make a tiny, hackable, and amazingly capable PC for around $25.  I've been following it with great interest.

I have to say that I was really tickled when I came across the project blog for MoccaPi .  He's designing a controller to let him remotely start and stop his coffee maker via Telnet.  The coolest part for me is the use of Miniboa for the device's server.

Miniboa ... on a RasberryPi ... making coffee.  How awesome is that?
