Guys,

I'm selling my dectop on ebay.

Here we go:
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&item=150327153679

I've been running pupeez on it for ages and it's been great.

Thanks,

n4l

Why are you selling it? I'm just now waiting on a delivery of two. I'm thinking of making a server or gateway out of them. In fact, I had an idea that I might buy two more and create a small cluster with them -just as a way of learning how to setup a cluster -lets see 333MHz x 4 =???

Can you give more details about your experience with the box?

you would have a bottleneck at the rather slow usb 1.1 connections (no builtin ethernet) ....but for training value it would be ok & they do make great test platforms for performance - if it performs on the DECtop it should work on just about anything somewhat modern ... video performance was horrible until I compiled the geode video driver for it and manually set it to XAA- pretty decent now

they do make decent web servers/gateways since most affordable connection speeds are < usb1.1 speeds anyways & are extremely quiet with almost no operational cost (<10 watts)... not a great file/media server though

I have 4 of them and puppy is on all but one (the test platform)

I am just trying to clear out my room of stuff. I've loved using the dectop. I wish i would have put a bit more RAM in though as it would have made a hell of a difference.

As technosauraus says, they would make a good server, but do bear in mind it is usb 1.1 over a network.

It was the box i tested pupeez on, so i know it works great with puppy. I also have installed xubuntu on it which worked well as well.

Thanks,

n4l
