Thanks Sun!

Just a quick blog to say a huge ‘thank you’ to Sun Microsystems. Today I received delivery of a SunFire X2200 M2. It is a dual-core AMD64 (Opteron? I’m not up with naming schemes anymore – I gave up after Pentium II) 1.8GHz, with 2gigs of RAM, a 250gig SATA hard drive and a DVD ROM drive. They donated it to me to use to primarily port my research to Solaris, but once that’s done it’s mine to keep.

A few screenshots of the server on my office floor:

This is all working towards the announcement of the release of an end-user ready release of my research from the past few years – stay tuned!

  1. Hehe, yeah, apparently it can take up to 64GB of memory. My machine came with 2GB, so I don’t think I’ll need much more than that! I’m spending a lot of time working on it to get Solaris 10 set up.

    Cheers for the comment!
