My Machines

and other heavy-metal


My workstation. Is an Intel Core2 Duo, 2 x 2.66GHz, Mal-2 (as it is also called, because it's Malaclypse the younger) has 4 GB Ram, and right now 2.2 Terabyte Diskspace. Grafics is a GeForce 8500 GT. Sound is some Intel ICH9 Family. For Networking I use a built-in Attansic L1. A DVD-Rom. And a Floppy is installed again. Operating System is a Debian/GNU Linux 4.0+, Kernel 2.6.27 or newer.


She is my firewall. Following up Eris (AMD 600) and Goldsatz (UltraSparc 5), which were multi-purpose servers, Goldstueck is a firewall only. Being a pcengines WRAP, she has 3 Natsemi 100MBit Ethernet-outlets, and a serial port. Processor is an NSC Geode, 233Mhz. 128 MB Ram. The Debian GNU/Linux operating system resides on a 1GB compact flash.


My Notebook. It's a Targa notebook, 12 MB ram, 1 GB Mitsumi Harddisk, 8bit Sound and a CT65530 Grafics Controller (1MB) which does 640x480 at 16bit colors. Operating System is Linux 2.4.17 based on a Debian distribution. This one is going away.


She's the webserver and mailserver for all domains I host. She's an UltraSparc E250. Processors are two UltraSparc II, 300Mhz; 1 GB or Ram and arbitrary 18GB-SCSI-Disks.


Another UltraSparc II, 2 processors 300Mhz, 768 MB Ram. This one is a Tritec ESU 450, Rackmount. Right now, she has only two 18GB SCSI Disks.


I also run two VT-Terminals, A Citoh 224 and a Digital original VT320. I've got no printer at all, because paper is for making books and nothing else. For sound-output I use a Dean Markley K100-B. Yes, right that's a 100 watts bass-amplifier combo -- Quake sounds real.


Over the years, I've had a pretty park of machines. Eris, some PC as server in my flat. Josephine, in thre incarnations as Sparc 10, another Sparc 10 and an UltraSparc 2 as webserver, Popeye, the Amiga 500, Olivia, the PowerPC/8100. Bugs, the Igel-Terminal. A NeXTSTATION Turbo, And Goldsatz the UltraSparc5, also used as Server. And of course PCs too numerous to remember, an Atari ST and two Apple II.
