Router Based IRC or Twitter Feed to TV/ Projector:

  Using a Router with USB ports we can add a USB-VGA adapter and display the I3 twitter feed or the IRC channel:
Devices: Basically any router that has OpenWRT support for the usb chipset
       ASUS WL-520gU - $34
     Find a way to have the router output to a analog signal that can be RF modulated so the signal can be sent to a RF Coax input.
