This server rules... 6 hot-swap fans (3 side-by-side * 2 back-to-back for added redudancy), 3 hot-swap power supplies, 6 hot-swap PCI slots (up to 64 bit/66 Mhz), 5 hot-swap drive bays, quad-xeon capable (only have 2 in for now), 12 GB of memory (oh, and 640k system memory, of course!)

The case and everything is very well designed, too. Too bad it's hanging bringing up eth0. Silly ASL. They ship their servers with a DHCP setup. Yeah, like a server is going to be using DHCP.

Glad I didn't drip any snot into the PCI buses when I was installing the IBM ServRAID card.

Interesting: Kernel 2.4.9-ac9-2. Yay for pre 2.5^H4.10 kernels!

Shit, I thought I was going to try and work on making my journal entries interesting. I lose.

Glad we are buying from ASL again.

Which isn't to say that ASL doesn't suck... they just happen to suck less, the price is right, and there is at least one person there with a clue who you can get on the phone half the time. Therefore, they rule!
