Most routers use a similar model and can save important settings but still
recover from a crash with no problem. There are several router distros that
are good examples on how to do it. I would suggest looking at Voyage Linux
http://linux.voyage.hk/  for an example. They have a specific versing for
the BeagleBone Black. You can run user space apps on it just fine and it can
save changes as necessary.

I'm sure there are other examples as well.

I'm just looking to making the box more reliable and stable. Running apps on
it seems more complex than I'm up for. However a web page to control and
read back seems like a nice trick.
