Well I'll be. Someone is running a multi-user Unix system. That's
something I've always wanted to do or find someone doing.

I can't yet tell if that's six logical CPUs or more. x86_64 cores
/could/ have hyper-threading et al. and more logical CPUs.
But still, six contemporary CPUs could be a lot of computing power.
16 GB of memory is nothing to sneeze at, especially for running commands
in a CLI environment. -- I'm assuming no daemons saying FEED ME RAM.

I applied for membership. I'll be interested to see if I'm granted
logon permission. :-)
Thank you for sharing Dan.
