even performance testing (sshhh! don't tell you-know-who) :-).
What do you all think?
Been planning to make some space for just that on one of our servers.
Seems 'of value' to keep it away from these lists - hardware
attract the worst sort of belligerance. <g>
All I will have for starters is a few System Boards, and a lot of
storage devicecontrollers - SCSI, PATA, SATA, USB
- storage is my interest. (pair of new 200 GB SATA bought
today for the express purpose of trials with DFLY).
As our servers are headless, nothing (from me) on video.
Happy to make space for those who do chase that stuff
Suggestion / Draft layout welcome. Zope/Plone or
