ahh, it has been a long time since I had to do homework, makes one kind of misty eyed for the days when I had all my own teeth and hair.

One use, though admittedly not very common, would be to monitor the amount of water your horse drinks in the field. The technical challenges that poses will not be met with windows, unless you could provide an environmentally secure, high power enclosure for the machine.

What about the kippers I can hear you asking already, well, as far as I know horses are allergic to smoked herring so make sure you uninstall GNU kipper before you deploy.
