Pentium II with Asus P2B-S

Another "new' machine, running with the i686 version of the packages (as long as I stay in text mode, this
words. Later I might have to downgrade to the i486 version).

Pentium II, the motherboard has integrated SCSI support (Adaptec AHA-2940U2/U2W).
I have two 64 GB disks in there.

The machine was a Silverstone case (for an old PVR, where the motherboard died).
The CDROM died, so rescue operations happen via Compact Flash on an external
PATA connection:

The hard disks have gone "3978  days" without checking, which is a personal record:

Even the SCSI host adapter is not amused about the age of the hard disk (this is
a SMART message I cannot easily remove - especially annoying as I have to press
Enter on every reboot):

This is one half of the archlinux32.andreasbaumann.cc mirror BTW. :-)

Erk!  Oh well, as long as it's load balanced with something a bit more trustworthy!

Yeah. With a 'Core 2' CPU machine, which is actually a 64-bit machine. :-)

Re: Pentium II with Asus P2B-S

So, the main mirror is back on the 64-bit Archlinux machine, this old Pentium II machine is serving now only
as 'hot standby' and test machine. :-)

Re: Pentium II with Asus P2B-S

maybe we should start posting pictures of all our core infrastructure wink (but my desk is too messy, I don't want to take a photo of the banana pi serving git2.archlinux32.org)

Perfect timing for a desk cleanup. :-)
