My ss20 is pretty much rock solid running openbsd 3.4 except for it
complaining about running out of nmbclusters which for some reason if I
raise the value it panics when I boot. 

Once I get my power supply for my e150 (hopefully that's all that's
wrong with it) ill move some of the stuff off. The only real reason I
run tons of services is lack of machines, but I do have an unused dual
p3 700mhz machine sitting around but its cursed. It likes to powerup at
times, but not actually boot till you unplug it and turn it on again. Id
sell it or give it away but it is cursed as I said...
