Any suggestions for freedom respecting, low electrical power usage servers with 2-4G of RAM, supports, SATA and gigabit Ethernet, and can run Debian?

I saw this on twitter, and thought it a surprisingly good illustration of identity on the net. twitter.com/zoeyjsalsbury/stat

Feel guilty. Drove to farmers market, because walking/biking with a 4 year old is hard. Also I still ended up with two plastic bags, two plastic tubs and two plastic trays. Cutting out single use waste is hard.

So over in Washington DC area, there may be very high winds.... Winds high enough that "Pedestrians will face very hazardous conditions, and need to be aware of wind-borne projectiles." washingtonpost.com/news/capita
