A Simple Machines Forum hosted on a Raspberry Pi 2 running Raspian GNU Linux 8, Apache 2, MariaDB and PHP with 250GB storage. The Bulletin Board provides us with an area for help, comments and ideas.
Why a Raspberry Pi? Well, it plain reliable, rock solid stable, fast and fun. It also auto-boots in the case of a total power outage. The Raspberry Pi is not affected by either the Spectre or Meltdown bugs!
And to really impress, we have a 'live' fallback system running on a Raspberry Pi Zero W which is running SMF on Raspian, Apache 2, MariaDB and PHP on a different IP address.
