Yesterday I decommissioned that 280R and it's now waiting in a storage room.
I'll find some extra disks and plug them in, as well as a permanent place in
a network rack.

I don't know what kind of memory these machines use, and judging by the
price of extra CPUs I doubt I'll be able to afford buying more, but
otherwise this is a machine stronger than either vore or spontini.
