Fly, you fools!

I’ve just purchased a bunch of dual-CPU SGI 1U rack servers from Weta Digital, to use for various projects. They’re ex-LOTR renderfarm machines, which is pretty damn cool in itself, much less getting them for the excellent price I got them at.

And, I guess they’ve been well-tested and run-in. 🙂

and I will be driving down to Welly, probably on the weekend of the 28th and 29th of this month, to pick them up. There are people we’d like to visit while we’re down there, too.

Should be fun!


  1. If said servers happen to have many alternative shots of Aragorn walking through the doors still lingering on them, you know what to do, right?

    • The Weta guys do have all of the incredibly detailed laser-scans of all the members of the Fellowship. They could re-render you an Aragorn doing .. well, pretty much whatever you wanted. 🙂
