Other Computer Goodness

I’ll have to wait a few months for a Sun-branded Opteron, but my Dell SC420 arrived today. Celeron 325J (2.53Ghz), 512M RAM, 160G SATA hard drive, CD-ROM, 10/100 ethernet, etc, for $265 shipped! I’m adding a DVD-ROM drive that I’ve already got here. Betatesting a Web service for an Austin startup earned me $78 in Amazon gift certificates, so that just ordered another 512M of RAM that will bring the box up to a gig of memory.
