Probably not:-) Of course like most machines it spend 99.9999999% of
its time doing nothing, but when you do need some CPU horsepower it's
nice to have. That one happens to be an old socket 754 "clawhammer"
I literally have a couple of FX60s sitting in boxes, but for pure CPU
power nothing at this point beats the PS3 I bought to play with, but
it draws 210 watts at idle.
The 3 users were the frontend process and a couple of SSH sessions,
one of which was just so I could cut and paste the uptime etc. into a
mail on another machine. As you could easily tell from the headers
(which I suppose could be forged but aren't) I use a Mac for most of
my day-to-day stuff as it's a decent little box with a BEAUTIFUL 20"
display, and AppleMail suits my limited needs for a good MUA, and OSX
sure beats Windows any day.
I guess the one year was mostly a psychological milestone, just to
prove it could be done, as I really do have to upgrade a lot of
things on the system, among other things try and get the power
consumption down. While power is relatively cheap here in Wyoming I
should try and reduce it on principle if nothing else.
