The not real PoE is exactly what this project is aiming for
It uses a PoE source, then using the 4,5,7,& 8 pins and attaching them to a coax power plug. It's not true PoE, but it's a good and cost effective solution that still allows the ethernet cable to work as an ethernet cable.
Then we're on the same page here...
I want a $25 computer, spending a bunch of cash for an injector/splitter seems silly to me
Depends on your goals with that $25 computer, really- that and whether you can reliably prevent some joker not getting their wiring on something wrong and mis-hooking up the power to one of your signal lines on the board.
