    Hmmm I haven't seemed to get that many Tumbleweed updates at all.
    Remember to update with "sudo zypper dup"

    Tumbleweed stalled for 2 weeks because LXDE broke in Factory.
    But it is rolling again. From the mailing list:

    14 Nov [opensuse-factory] New Factory snapshot 20141107 released!
    20 Nov Re: [opensuse-factory] Re: LXDM 0.5.0 Startup issue in Factory
    26 Nov [opensuse-factory] New Tumbleweed snapshot 20141124 released!
    27 Nov [opensuse-factory] New Tumbleweed snapshot 20141126 released!
    04 Dec [opensuse-factory] New Tumbleweed snapshot 20141201 released!
    06 Dec [opensuse-factory] New Tumbleweed snapshot 20141203 released!
    06 Dec [opensuse-factory] New Tumbleweed snapshot 20141205 released!
    07 Dec [opensuse-factory] New Tumbleweed snapshot 20141206 released!
    09 Dec [opensuse-factory] New Tumbleweed snapshot 20141208 released!

    so 8 updates in 4 weeks. Thats fine by me.

    Michael: Also many thanks for including suse!!!
    You are doing an increasingly good job! Big respect

    The most systems under full load at any given time are probably 10, but a few of them are Atoms or APUs.

    Yeah, good job and clearly a lot of work has gone into setting this and PTS. Well done and keep up the good work. I wonder whether it would be worth setting up a system or two running PTS on Windoze or McOS, just for comparison purposes. I suppose you wouldn't expect much excitement since only the graphics drivers would be updated.
    Don't think it would be too entertaining, but PTS is supported on OS X and Windows too.

    The white one? Some $50 NZXT chassis.

    Just four normal-sized surge protectors. Again, the systems cycle on at different times for their test schedules and they'll power off and then WoL when needed.

    Off-topic, I am glad you included OpenSUSE tumbleweed, although, to be honest, I am starting to regret installing it on my laptop. I use it once or twice a week, and although it works fine right out of the box, each time there's a gazillion new updates.

    Drives my OUD nuts.

I wonder whether it would be worth setting up a system or two running PTS on Windoze or McOS, just for comparison purposes. I suppose you wouldn't expect much excitement since only the graphics drivers would be updated.

    I have a couple of questions:

    1) What's with the cool-looking case on the leftmost side of the first picture? Sure looks damn fine!

    2) What sort of power protection do you use? Are all these systems hooked up on a industrial-size UPS? A power spike could make it a seriously bad day for you.
