Looking for wall plug-in Linux box that can be used as simple server

Hello Everyone,

Long time lurker here. I regret the fact that my first post is a request for information, but I am totally stumped.

A while back, I saw a photo of a small Linux server that looked like a laptop adapter (i.e., a plug, a cord, and a 2"x3"x8"-ish box). It was a very simple box that could be used as a server, with a network jack as the only I/O.

I have been looking for this type of server for days, and I cannot seem to find it using my usual methods. I want to buy one of these for my brother as a birthday gift.

If anyone has any idea what I might be talking about and can point in the right direction, I'd greatly appreciate it.

I think what you might be looking for is something based on the SheevaPlug design.

Basically the same.

I can't find the other one I was thinking about.

This is exactly it.

Being that the gift recipient is at the beginner level, I'll go with the TonidoPlug!
