Bits and pieces

A Dell PowerEdge 1950 that I'm taking the CPU and RAM out of, because I don't have enough power supplies to make it actually run -- I'd rather have one server with two power supplies rather than two with one each. Anyways, putting the CPU and RAM in another unit makes that unit more usable thanks to VMware. I'm constantly amazed to be living in a future where reasonable hardware for VMware is basically free -- we don't want to use it in production because there's no warranty or support on it -- so having a sandbox for playing and experiments is exceptionally useful. As long as none of those experiments leaks into production, that is. I'm totally sure that's never happened, no sir.
