@José-Luis-Cánovas now that you mention it, directly connecting them via GPIO seems a little convoluted when you could just do what you suggested. I could make a server rack, getting ethernet cables isn't an issue, getting a switch and a load balancer system isn't an isse, it's now just a matter of saving up and getting 3-5 more omega 2's, AND ethernet expansions. It sounds like a super awesome project to do though.

RE: Idea Dump
Is it possible at all to stack several Omegas on Expansion docks to then create a tinie tiny web server? There's some obvious concerns: Powering all of the devices, configuring them to properly communicate with one another, and if it actually will work at all.
PHP, Python, Ruby, and Java all have micro-frameworks that would/could work for a project like this; so programming it wouldn't be a huge issue.
RE: Bug: Omega 2+ w/ Expansion Dock; hyphen won't work in console or anywhere
Scratch the "anywhere" part. Double checked just now and it works everywhere BUT the terminal application.
Bug: Omega 2+ w/ Expansion Dock; hyphen won't work in console or anywhere
The hyphen key works on my computer (proof ----------) but for whatever reason my Omega 2+ doesn't like it. Kind of a big issue since there's a lot of commands that require it. Did your basic lame IT solutions; restarting it, making sure everything is up to date, carefully removing it from the expansion dock and inserting it back in and making sure it was all the way in, etc.
Fingers crossed that I don't have to ship it back since I just got it today.
