I just wanted to take a minute to give an update on SunHELP's status and to
wish everyone a happy holiday season.

The new server (a T1000, graciously donated by the Niagara product group at
Sun), is up and online at the colocation facility. Right now it has an OS
(Solaris 10 6/06) installed; most of the critical site content is being
mirrored daily. I hope to do the official switchover by the first of the
year along with publishing a list of benchmark results comparing it to the
existing system.

I'd also like to remind everyone that the SunHELP site and mailing lists
are a hobby run in my spare time; I don't do things in order to, and do
not, make a profit. The revenue brought in from Google ads is used to pay
for colocation expenses, the other ads I run are trades for hardware and
software, or put up as a "thank you" for vendors who have been long-time

If SunHELP has been useful or helpful to you in 2006, please take the time
to send an email and let me know how - the occasional "thank you, I
found exactly what I was looking for" or "this helped me save the day"
really makes all the effort I put into everything worthwhile. If you feel
generous, take a look at my Wish List (http://wishlist.mrbill.net) and
consider purchasing something.

Everyone have a safe and happy holiday season; drive carefully, don't drink
and drive, and watch out for bad eggnog. July 2007 will mark the 10-year
anniversary of the site (it started out as SUNHELP.COM), and I look forward
to many years to come.  If you have any suggestions for additions or
improvements, please don't hesitate to let me know your ideas.
