Hell, I don’t have much blood left……and the sperm bank makes me pay to donate.

Do you have any new boxes that you’re looking at?
This one looks pretty good SS. Nothing definite yet though.
Relion 115 Server
The Relion 115 is Penguin Computing’s high performance computing server. Engineered with HPC clustering in mind, the Relion 115 is built around dual Intel Pentium III processors and up to 4GB of PC133 Ram. Add one or two cost-effective IDE hard drives to create your ideal clustered network.
For a single processor Intel system, see the Relion 105. For the same high level of performance as the Relion 115, but with SCSI hard drives and hardware RAID capability, upgrade to the Relion 125.

Memory This system supports up to 4 GB of interleaved SDRAM using four 1 GB DIMMS. Interleaved memory requires DIMMs to be installed in like pairs. 1GB PC133 (2 x 512MB)
The option to install a third hard drive would be nice. Two 40gig drives will work for awhile. We are planning on keeping a complete backup, so when we use up the first 40 gig drive, the second drive will effectively be full also.
I am waiting for two rather large pledged donations to show up, then we will see how much box we can buy.
