After many years of faithful service I’ve finally retired my cube from it’s position as my household server. It was the final server I had running OpenBSD (I won’t be running anything else on OpenBSD from now on) so it marks the end of an era. The new server is x86 based and running FreeBSD 5. While it has a fan and is considerably noisier than the cube it’s also not in the body of the house, so noise is no longer a factor. The final jobs the cube was needed for were cutover last night and all has been running well without it for 12 hours now.

I’m not sure what I’ll do with the cube now, but I don’t expect to sell it 🙂
