I have enough hardware to replace all of the noisy old TAPoR machines, including a groovy and cheap Acer Revo nettop (which looks suitable for use in our context - and really cheap). Three of the machines are built, and I have some RAM and GFx cards coming to spruce them up for dual-monitor use. This *should* allow us to make the most of what we have for a couple of years in B045. I haven't tracked my time on this as it's kind of pedestrian stuff - not really blog worthy - but very time consuming.
I've also been working with CS on a login/auth scheme that will allow us to configure each machine to use LDAP to allow Netlink holders access to the box. The PAM stack config has been done, and we're now looking at the skel/profile config so that new users will have a homedir etc. when they log in for the first time.
