Sometime late last year my main workstation started locking up randomly, first only under very high load. Early this year it turned so bad, that I had to stop using it altogether for daily work and mainly worked on my laptop which, being small (12") and portable, wasn't really designed for that.
But that is now finally over. All parts for the new workstation have been delivered. I've assembled and tested stuff. Just in time the Debian Installer team released a new RC and the installation of Etch went mostly fine.
I still have to build a patched kernel to get all the hardware to work, but I'm already enjoying using the new, stable workstation :)
Next on the TODO: migrating remaining services off the old system
