Hi *,


"Jackass IT stunt No. 1: Route city services through a laptop
Ever wonder whether you could route an entire city network through a
laptop running Fedora? Take a seat. Or better yet, leave the chair for
your laptop. You'll need to balance it somewhere to keep city services
up and operational through a two-day snowstorm.
After a feverish half-hour configuring the switch and setting up
802.1q trunking and routing on a Dell Latitude running Fedora Linux,
the city network was back up and running, with all traffic routing
through a single interface on the laptop balanced on a chair in the
data center."
