Over 10 years ago, I wrote my first blog post. Since then, I've authored books, had kids, traveled the world, found Trish and blogged about it all.

Getting ready for the Sun Fire T2000 Server

T2000 Like Jeff, Bill and Bruce, I signed up for the free 60 day trial of the Sun Fire T2000 Server. Why? Because I heard you can get one for free if you blog about it enough. ;-) My plans are to setup continous integration environments for AppFuse and Roller using CruiseControl. I also hope to do some performance tests b/w Java persistence and web frameworks. Finally, I'd like to some single-server vs. clustered server performance tests using Tomcat.

When we built our house way back in 2004, we had it wired with fiber. Even though we still aren't using the fiber, I also had them install ethernet throughout. Today, I finally took advantage of it. I moved my cable modem downstairs and hooked up RJ45 connectors on both ends, so I can now plug my office network into an ethernet outlet on the wall. Good thing my Dad is a network guy - he made it all pretty damn easy.

It was a great afternoon in Denver: 85 degrees, cold Fat Tires in the fridge, kids running around playing in the kiddie pool - and I got my house re-wired in under 30 minutes. The "old basement" will soon become a server room. Now I need a rack - for the T2000 as well as an old Dell Dimension Fedora box. Any suggestions?
