Home Hardware Upgrades

I received a couple of early birthday presents today. A 2GB RAM upgrade for the main desktop PC in the house running Fedora 8 and a 320GB SATA drive. Installed them after dinner this evening and am now enjoying the new RAM and extra hard disk space. That brings the main desktop machine up to 4GB of RAM and about 800GB of attached storage.

I run several VMs on the newly upgraded machine, several of which I use when I help the Fedora Unity crew test their re-spins. Now I can throw a little extra RAM at those VMs and shuffle them off to a different spindle and one with more cache to speed those tests up a bit.
