I don't take in big iron systems only desktop sized ones
here I have only these machines
, which serves the whole local infranet, exporting NFS (Irix and linux filesharing), SMB/CIFS (Windows filesharing), SSHFS (RS/P, over FUSE), HTTP (personal wikipedia, personal blog), and RAID mirroring on a pool of 3 pairs of hard drives. It's located in the living room, it does makes no noise, it has a 7" LCD with touch screen on the front, and it's easy to control, so my girl friend is happy with its wikipedia and blog full of fashion things (OMG, I have reserved a pair of hard drive, a.k.a the whole pool0, to her needs)
, aka the big iron in blue hulk skin, currently does not wear any plastic and it lives hidden in the attic, attached to a control box with a lot of thin cables and wire going in and out its front-plane. I was said that it looks like a troll in its cyberpunk cave out from a Gibson's story (o'really
1 Slice, it lives in my little office standing vertically, looking for a second slice in order to hide an MC68332 inside, plus its equipment. I have hidden an embedded linux board inside with the purpose of providing a better file sharing (may be VNC) to RiscOS, which runs a true DOS box over gemini_II chip ([email protected]). It's a very nice, quite, fast, and funny machine, especially if you install a
plus its external harddrive, it is so tiny and smaller than hulk by several order of magnitudes, that it can live in the living room, hidden under the hifi box, like a dwarf in its cave. It's MIPS32-R2, it shares a part (compiled as MIPS1) of its rootfs with Octane2 (MIPS4), oh well, but it worked only with kernel 2.6.17, cause kernel 4.1.* does not work with binaries compiled for PAGESIZE=4Kbyte, it wants PAGESIZE=64Kbyte. I am distilling a new stage, which does work
, located in my little office, near RiscPC, no bigger than a toaster, it's tftp-bootstrapped by Cerberus, employed as console of everything, including Irix
my girl friend said
- chaos is not allowed, things must be in order!
- things here (especially things in the living room) must have a purpose
corollary: if she doesn't see, then it's ok
consequence: things must be hidden, like Transformers or dwarfs in their cave
so, can I use Lord Crimson as "wine refrigerator"
