Project:UpgradeComputers

Lots of the computers around the space are quite long in the tooth. It would be good to replace them with things slightly less long in the tooth.

End Goal

  • 1 Server (to replace babbage)
  • 2 Workstations
  • 1 Computer for the touch table

Things to do

  • Find out the type of RAM that is in each computer
  • Check PCIe capacities for graphics cards
  • Catalog hard disks and figure out what goes where
  • Save useful data
  • Run stress tests on potential systems (e.g. light-grey Dennis)

Current Computers

  • 2x Dennis - Light grey seems like a useful system if stable
  • Lovelace - Useful in it's entirety
  • Difference - Ram might be useful
  • Babbage - Probably not useful at all
  • Computer from Steff - not in space yet!
  • Silver computer - needs power supply fitting/modding

When

Sometime after Christmas
