NetBSD and Lighttpd help put three 200 MHz PCs put to good use
I’m a staunch supporter of putting old, but working, computers to good use again. Personally, I have repurposed numerous systems back into production after they were deemed to be too old, and replaced with newer hardware. One of my favourite tools for enabling this is NetBSD.
At the pub last night, a friend of mine who also does some IT work was telling me of how he rescued three old 200 MHz PCs with the help of NetBSD. He set up Lighttpd, and within a couple of hours they’d been integrated into the network and were serving images.
