My new (used) Poweredge 6400 arrived today — a new dawn of technical complexity, electrical power consumption and noise pollution has arrived in the Sponge household.
The first technical challenge is what name to give to the machine? In accordance with my own conventions it has to be that of a London train station, and because it is short, wide, and dressed in black I immediately thought it looks like a Victoria. Unfortunately I already have one of those, so I think it’ll have to be “Waterloo”.
It’ll be a fine chance to give a brief history lesson on the Empire’s Days of Glory to my mob of ungrateful foreign colonial children.
