Subject: Happy New Year everybody!
Many things happening @ Cray-Cyber.org, most of it behind the scenes, though. We found some more additional storage space for the collection in second half of 2008 and already started to fill it up. Currently we have several SGIs in there (mostly O2000 and Onyx2) and lots of "new" CDC spare parts and documentation. Right at the moment, John is out of Germany with a team of people to unmount another huge Control Data installation. Parts will end up in the new storage facility on Wednesday of upcoming week. Maybe pictures will follow, stay tuned.
Upcoming actions for our small team in the computer room: fresh install of our Cray YMP-EL, which currently has a broken system disk, as you might have noticed already. Fortunately, we have enough spare disks here. Another main task will be the setup of our Cray J916 and finally fix another broken system disk in our SGI Origin 2000. Since it's new year, we of course have plenty of New Year's pledges :-)
Oh, and for the Web 2.0 freaks out there: We recently set up a twitter stream. Feel free to follow us at http://twitter.com/craycyber.
