It's been awhile..

It has been quite some time since my last post on this site.

Honestly, I haven't been able to think of anything that I really wanted to talk about.

If you have ever read some of my previous posts, you know that I am a complete sucker for old hardware. Thus, It should not be hard to conclude that during my absence I have been happily collecting various incarnations of out-dated technology.

My most recent acquisition is an Sun Microsystems Ultra 5 (UltraSPARC-IIi 360MHz). I had to put some money into it in order to get it running, but bringing things back from the 'dead' is part of the game so it was completely worth it.

I'll be replacing the GNU/Linux distribution I had initially installed for testing purposes with Splack, a port of Slackware to the SPARC architecture, fairly soon and from there we shall see how things go.
