Wandboard SSD Stand

I decided that my development Wandboard needed a stand, as opposed to it lying on an anti-static mat at random angles. I 3D printed a simple plastic piece that also allowed me to attach a fast Corsair 60 GB SSD for SATA benchmarks and faster builds. A quick dd test gives me 113 MB/s write speed! Check the pictures below!

I plan to install Debian with a GUI, along with Eclipse, to do kernel development natively. This should make writing and debugging ARM-based drivers a much simpler exercise! The issue is that Eclipse only has a Debian ARM 'port' and does not have any Ubuntu or Arch variants. I will probably try to get it working on Linaro but only time will tell...
