sound and fury

5 computers arrived for me today (3 of them mine, for “dogfood”:http://catb.org/~esr/jargon/html/D/dogfood.html work; one for each of Andrei and Vlad), and I set them up. Holy crap, is it loud and hot in this office. My machines seem to be perfectly happy — kudos, indeed, to the people responsible for the VNC installer in Fedora Core and for open-carpet! Andrei’s machine isn’t so happy, so I think he’ll be getting someone to replace part or all of it.

Tomorrow I get to finish setting up Lustre and pdsh and distcc and all the other nice toys for making use of a handful of machines, and then beat the crud out of them. And maybe find a way to make them quieter, good heavens. Update: pdsh and distcc are done, and it’s a beautiful thing.
