Hi Shaun
Doing good, enjoying 30 Degree days and playing around on an Sun
Ultra10 I picked up on ebay, also brought a 440MHz cpu last week for it,
hopefully that will turn up this week. We had a bigger air con unit
fitted a few weeks ago, keeps this machine cooler now with it's 5
drives, the two raptors run about 28C average and the three 250GB around
38C. CPU doesnt get above 36C on full load with the water cooling

A: The mathematician only needs paper, pencil, and a trash bin for his
