Re: .d.o machines which are down (Re: Questions for the DPL candidates)

Auric is down, because it is a only a U60. I attempted to move some drives
around, and I did put them in the wrong place.

The delay in getting it fixed is, as I said, getting a response from James
to move the new machine there. No reason to fix auric if I can just
replace it.

Stop chasing red herrings, and just get back to work. Sparc has always
been and always will be a maintained architecture.
