<html><body><p>It all started when I bought a second hand Compaq P120 and inserted two el cheapo NICs because I intended it to be my Internet gateway. For some reason if there was some load from my workstation to the internet the gateway had a kernel panic. So I called it titanic (no too mention the fact that I have a list from a <a href="http://groups.google.nl/groups?q=titanic+group:alt.sysadmin.recovery+group:alt.sysadmin.recovery+group:alt.sysadmin.recovery+group:alt.sysadmin.recovery&start=20&hl=nl&lr=&ie=UTF-8&group=alt.sysadmin.recovery&scoring=d&selm=36b36611.1453370%40news.earthlink.net&rnum=24">newsgroup</a> I like to read, in which it featured quite prominently).
As I said in an <a href="http://www.ramdyne.nl/archives/000001.html">earlier article</a> in this blog, titanic had a harddisk failure. I had another system available to take over from titanic, because I was having some performance and harddisk space problems with it. This machine is called <a href="http://www.webtitanic.net/frameBritannica.html">brittanic</a> and
it is (of course) running Linux. It is also the web, mail and shell server. <a target="_top" href="http://www.webtitanic.net/frameolympic.html">Olympic</a> is my Windows 2000 workstation, which I need for some Windows development things I still do.
As a replacement for brittanic, I bought a second hand IBM PC, which is called <a href="http://www.webtitanic.net/framelus.html">lusitania</a>.</p></body></html>
