Unfortunately my SUN Fire 280R has left me for good last friday. Let’s all give it a silent two minutes..
After a couple of dear years – spent configuring a nice little Solaris 10 setup, all I have left are a couple of zip files and sql dumps that were supposed to be my backup. And, of course, a lot of memories of that beast being installed by Felix, Falko and me in the first place.. Well.. those were the times – us sitting in the cellar, listening to the sound of Sun SPARC and DEC Alpha hardware – hooked up to private gigabit, trying to figure out why the hell everything is so different in Solaris than we were used to. Heck, it was a nice trip.
But I’m glad to finally put an end to this long gone era. I’m back on a rented dedicated server – running good old Debian stable; as I am supposed to.
