The Herd Of Kittens Helps with Paws and Whiskers
Aside from a variety of web sites (by far the most accessible
part of The Herd) there are other tools and services that get
attention from time to time.
- OpenAFS cell
/afs/thok.org is used to share data among known
parties, using Kerberos for identification. Roughly 200G of
storage, which isn't entirely devoted to kitten
- Image Server
www-images.thok.org will shortly be the "bulk image" server,
to allow seperate experiments with clever storage tricks, and
possible future offloading and mirroring.
ns3.thok.org provide nameservice for a moderate collection
of domains; nothing especially clever, but we do provide
secondary nameservices for friends and colleagues who don't
need actual support.
- Operational Platforms
- Debian GNU/Linux on x86 and sparc; Solaris 8 on sparc.
- Near-operational Platforms
- With some effort, we can boot "Research Institute OSF/1 1.2"
on a DECmips, sunos-3-based X-kernel on Sun 3/50, some X
terminals, DOS 3.11, CP/M 86, TurboDOS, and probably
- Cruft Platforms
- In the hope of running them again someday, we have
accumulated Sun 3 (68k), HP 7xx (hppa), HP 3xx (68k),
DECstation (mips), TRS-80 (z80), VAX (cvax), and other
- DVD-R, CD-R, Exabyte tape, Ecrix tape, Zip, Jaz, Orb, 3.5"
floppy, 5.25" floppy, and even 8" floppy for a sufficiently
good (or interesting) cause.
