No Need For Speed

Already Got It…

I ordered a new server at work, and until we have time to get it rolled out [0], it lives on my desk. This server has two 3.2 GHz Xeon processors (for a total of four cores), 4 GB of RAM, and a RAID 5 array totalling 500 GB of disk space. Since it has no OS and no purpose at the moment [1], I’m running Knoppix on it, from RAM. You have never seen Firefox open so fast… [0] This just means one late night at the office, if all goes well.
[1] I’ve only been able to come up with a few menial tasks for it, like compressing large files. It’s kind of depressing to just let it idle on my desk all day.
