Pelican has died 🙁 It’s no more. It has ceased to be. It’s shuffled off its mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin’ choir invisibile.

Nice to see it didn’t shutdown without a few last errors 😉 After nearly 8 years of stress testing its CPU cores will cool for the last time.

RIP pelican. There will be no flowers but donations accepted to my paypal account.

Next project: how to launch a fully populated E450 into orbit 🙂

    Nooooooo. when i was a lad, i remember when pelican replaced snipe, crane, urmmmm kiwi(??), and ur stork (or was that a compsci machine)? I forget. 4 machines for the four faculties (before tech and sci merged).

    I remeber the annoyance of Outlook expressed nuking imap email folders and not being able to ssh/ftp in and fix them by hand, or having pine access (the shame). I always thought a menu option, after logging in, to run pine would have been useful and not to demanding.

    Next your be telling me Ben’s thinking about replacing nemesis in the library.

    I can’t go on, it’s too painful.

    Chris, I hate to break it to you, but…

    We replaced nemesis about 6 weeks ago, and plato in January 🙂

    And of course merlin, falcon, and gos are long gone too 🙂

    End of an era..

    I was there when pelican was first wheeled down the ramp off the pallet…

    The misadvanters with Solstice Disksuite 🙂

    Rushing to get it ready so several hundread bishops could use email…

    And don’t start me on THAT weekend when we did the OS upgrade… Much Pizza eaten… Much pain…

    We were probably the first people in history to have a SCSI controller “c75”!

    Ah well, all good things must come to an end. (You not taking it home Darren?)
