My Sun Ultra 60 Creator

My SPARC Sun Ultra 60 Creator 3D

The machine that you are accessing right now is an approximately 14 years old “Sun Ultra 60 Creator 3D”.

It is a gift from my former manager Bill Smith. “Thank you Bill

For the last 7 years it served me many purposes, being turned off for less than a month in total during office and apartment changes and other similar life disasters.

Currently it serves as:

  1. A WordPress web server “Apache, PHP5, MySQL” – which you are accessing right now.
  2. Provide a SSH tunnel to allow me and my children to get safely in our home network from the outside.
  3. Of course because this is not much of a load, she runs a BOINC client in separate zone, simply to give her something to do in her free time.

By being the most stable peace of hardware I ever used she earned her personal pronoun :-)

I am wondering time to time how many of her breed are still left working.
