been a while?


the contract was finally signed, and we have sent out a purchase order for the first $X worth of 'starter equipment', which means they will start shipping the machines that actually exist at this moment.

I haven't been blogging about this yet, because nothing interesting has happened. Just boring preparation work for the upcoming deluge of work. Like figuring out the Server Management software, as well as getting pxe-over-ib working, and doing filesystem tests and whatnot with lustre/different raid configurations. no picture-inducing stuff.
