<This is an old draft I just finished. Oy!>
We just received a brand new Foundry FastIron Gigabit switch at work. It’s to be used in our new network-based editing configuration. I’m testing it out to see if it will handle 8 simultaneous video captures. Here’s the boot message from this bad boy:

PowerPC, eh? Pretty slick. It must be one of those embedded jobbies from FreeScale. With 128 MB of RAM, this is a pretty serious switch.
