LIMES! A huge amount of them. Yummi.
So our test-drive 6509 is setup-and-going in the local
junk server room. As you can see the room is obviously used for two different purposes. On the one hand it’s a windowless central network service point…and on the other it’s… oh dear…take a look for yourself:
When you come closer…you see…:
And to raise some pulses -a module listing:

Oh…something that raised our pulses… a 6513 in one of the other Network Service Points…yummi:
At the moment the ahzf and cosrahn are playing with the machine…so more stuff is definitly to come soon.
I have to quote:
“You end up with a console with half the triangle setup rate of the 360, a crippled CPU that is a bitch to program, and tools that are atrocious compared to the 360. To make matters worse, you have an arrogant set of execs telling us that twice the price is worth it for half the power, a year late. If it isn’t already too late, Sony had better do something about this recto-cranial inversion or it may very well sink the console.”

If you not have known yet: Mentos and Cola is a great combination for some explosive fountains.
There’s a short video you shouldn’t miss on that:
As of today the 6bone IPv6 testbed is phased out…
The 6bone was established in 1996 by the IETF as an IPv6 Testbed network to enable various IPv6 testing as well as to assist in the transitioning of IPv6 into the Internet. It operates under the IPv6 address allocation 3FFE::/16 from RFC 2471. As IPv6 is beginning its production deployment it is appropriate to plan for the phaseout of the 6bone. This document establishes a plan for a multi-year phaseout of the 6bone and its address allocation on the assumption that the IETF is the appropriate place to determine this.”
