Large Flocks on Disk and Sheep Appliances

We all know it takes a long time to download a lot of sheep. And you'll never get the sheep that lived and died before you connected to the server in the first place. What you might not know is just how good Electric Sheep looks when you have, for example, 75 gigabytes of sheep in your cache. Well, let me tell ja, it looks pretty damn good :). It almost never skips or jumps, and it almost never repeats... The trance effect is much more pronounced.

Well here's a solution for those who crave instant gratification: I could provide a large flock of sheep on a external hard drive. Just plug it in to your PC or Mac, point the software at your new flock, and enjoy the show. It would take one computer 20 years to render all these sheep.

For those who want the ultimate sheep experience I have also developed a sheep appliance. This is a special super-silent fanless computer loaded with sheep software and configured to run completely automatically. No keyboard or mouse is required, just plug it in and turn it on. This is a very good looking device that goes well in your bedroom or livingroom (or your restaurant, bar, or lobby).
