I have been looking at the Penguin Computing site and the
machines loog good for the price.  Iwonder if there are
some with experience with these folks who would like to share?

We have a rack mount dual PIII-450 machine of theirs in my lab. It's
been working great. The only problems we have had with it have been due
to someone hacking into it. It's now on a private network that doesn't
leave the lab.

It has a Super Micro P6DBU motherboard. It has good quality parts and is
well built. We upgraded the RAM from 128MB to 512MB because it will be
used to control CAMAC crates controlling experiments in three labs. We
added a Kinetic Systems K2915 (I think) to control the CAMAC crates. We
also added a 1.3Gb magneto-optical drive and a HP 35470A DAT tape drive
for backup and file transfer.

I recommend them.

Craig

Thank you, Craig.  That's what I hoped to hear.  I'm taken with their name <g>.
