in thread My primary PC CPU is a

I have a SunBlade 100 at work (Solaris) and a 1.4 Ghz Athlon (Linux) at home. Both have .5 GB or RAM or better. The SunBlade is nice, rock-solid hardware, but I would not trade the speed of my Athlon for anything. In fact I spend about half my development time at work SSH'ed into my home box because it runs so much faster. I copy the code over, develop at home and copy it back. Plus that way I can links into PM.org whilst I work. ;)

Use CVS

    Do you literally copy the code? Is your code not in some sort of network-available CVS project? CVS is the only way to go on that sort of situation.

    You'll love it. Trust me.

      I'm pushing hard to get CVS here. I use it at home, but I'm selling it to a group of developers who have 'got along fine without it for years'. I have the go ahead to install it and come up with a compelling demo. The only thing I haven't played with is using it over an SSH tunnel, which would be a requirement to using it from home. The other challenge is that we use e*Gate 4.5.1 which has it's own pretend version control (basically only locking) and CVS will have to play nice with it.

      Thanks for the input, though,

        You don't even need an explicit tunnel as long as you're running SSH on both ends. Just set your CVS_RSH environment variable to ssh and you're set.

    I use a SunBlade 100 too and I actually think the thing is slower than my AMD K62-350 at home. In fact, I honestly feel that the x86 machines I have worked on (comparable clock speeds) actually handle resource loads better than the Sun boxen do. I upgraded recently from an ultra5 (man I loved that machine) to this sun blade (sunpci 2) and while I still enjoy this beast, I sometimes wish I had an x86 box here running some flavor of BSD. What I hate most is Solaris 8....or Solaris in general. I hate proprietary junk. The one good thing about the Sun boxes is the diags you can do on the machines from the eprom. Did I mention that I am not fond of Solaris? Oh yeah, I did.

    Now of course, when it comes down to hard core servers a machine that can have 32 procs and 20 gig of ram is tough to be beat by an x86 machine so, those types of machines are not what I am talking about; strictly client boxen.
