My setup 20060914 update

Almost a year since I last updated this and in the process, I have moved house and managed to wire the whole place with LAN points.

Well the setup has changed yet again. The Athlon64 machine has been converted to a full-time linux machine and it is now the 24/7 server. I moved the ANTEC power supply over to it and decked it out with harddrives. Currently, there are 5 harddrives (4 ATA and 1 SATA) in it for a total storage capacity of 1.16 TB. All the ATA are taken up by harddrives such that I do not even have a CD-ROM, not that I use it often. I have capacity for another 3 more SATA drives, but there is no more space in the casing. Next thing to get would be a nice full tower casing. The graphics card has been changed to a NVidia MX4000 128MB which has a much better support in Linux. So far so good. Again it is hooked up to the ATEN KVM as with all the other machines.

There is now a nice Viewsonic 20 inch LCD connected to the KVM which runs at 1680×1050. Lots of nice screen real estate there.

The Powermac is still there for all the multimedia stuff.

There is an addition of a new Athlon64 with 512MB RAM and 1 120GB SATA harddrive with a ATI 9600 PRO graphics card. This will be the main windows machine once I manage to get it installed properly.

The Athlon 1.4GHz has been retired.
