    When my refrigerator stopped producing cold air and decided to live the simple life of a room temperature box, I cringed at the idea of having to spend the money and shop around for a new one.

There are such occassions where someone might want to have something like the Workshop but as an appliance to use privately. I decided to experiment with this idea for my own personal needs using a Raspberry Pi 2, which at $35 makes for a cheap private appliance.
