 yes?  you have a full computer in front of you - what did you
expect!! :)  the fact that it's only what... 20mm x 8mm x 50mm should
not detract from the fact that it's a fully-functioning computer with
more processing power and memory than the average PC of even five

same hilarious "wtf" with the odroid-u2.  there, luckily, it has

 but yes: the version of debian-installer i want to set up for the a10
variant will be booting over USB-OTG (g_ether).  so, you'd plug and
power it in a PC, and the plan is to enable busybox's telnetd and just

 minor inconvenience of having to set up routing (NAT) on the host PC
over usbnet, but that's not hard.
