I Like to build and repair computers. I have both a Cubieboard, and Raspberry Pi. I also enjoy refinishing wood furniture.

I like using the terminal, writing basic shell scripts, and sometimes even installing from source :)

Everything I say(type) is not related to anything,
nor does it represent any entity.
The words belong not to anyone.

comment Can i emulate a CD-ROM through a USB cable to another computer?
It may be possible somehow, I know some small form factor pc/tablets have a mini-usb port for accessing files from another PC, and There are these devices in existence kickstarter.com/projects/elegantinvention/… zalman.com/eng/product/Product_Read.php?Idx=673 , some new android/tablet devices are using USB-OTG en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USB_on_the_go which lets the device be either master or slave. I suspect it is only a matter of time...
