It's Not Magic, It's Work!

New Box (2)

At long last my new box has arrived. Following my standard naming convention, it's going to be Lapin-Bleu. Lapin will be replacing Herisson, a three year old box that work were junking. Lapin is in most ways an order of magnitude more powerful than Herisson, except disk space where it's a two orders of magnitude improvement.

There are only three down-sides of the transition, the new box will draw more power, could make more noise and I'll have to arse about to make the transition. I've yet to double check but when I booted the new box for the first time, it was actually quite quiet, so it may be only the increase in power demand that is my long term problem.
