Core 2 Duo madness
So the day _after_ I buy an Intel Core2Duo for my new home server shit hits the fan and Intel say that maybe actually the chips have, you know, the odd bug. Ah well, I doubt it will affect me in all honestly, but isn’t it just typical.
Anyway, upside of above purchase is that Avoriaz is now a much improved boxen (though currently off-line as its under the desk at work, recompiling world because I can). If things stay well for a bit I may by another to replace Whistler, even given the above.
Morgins, Manchester colo box, is also to be replaced by a Dell SC1425 I have bought from the administrators of my soon to be ex-employer. It will be nice to go from a dual 650Mhz P3 with 512MB of RAM to a dual 3GHz Xeon with 2GB
