  78. Description
  79. -----------
  80. Ceilingcat was funded by the SPC in 2007. Prior to it\'s arrival the
  81. room had a 21\" CRT taking up most of the desk, and various old desktop
  82. machines, none of which seemed to actually work.
  83. To solve this werdz, lil_cain & receive picked pretty much the cheapest
  84. parts they could find, along with the cheapest 22\" LCD screen they
  85. could find.
  86. Ceilingcat was purchased by receive, and assembled by werdz. It\'s
  87. mainly used to burn disks, and use firefox, but it has also been used
  88. for extra storage, testing etc. We used it a couple of times to netboot
  89. other machines, and to host a Solaris VM which was used to kickstart
  90. [Murphy](/Murphy "wikilink"). Not only that, but it has a very loud
  91. sound system that coconut and sonic like using in order to relieve
  92. [deathray](/deathray "wikilink")-related stress.
  93. In early 2010 it was connected to the new Dell Powervault disk array
  94. ([Worf](/Worf "wikilink"); we needed to see if the damn thing would turn
  95. on), so for a few brief weeks of its life it had the best set of disks
  96. of any Redbrick machine, and possibly the best set of disks of any DCU
  97. machine.
  98. As of November 2011, Ceiling Cat was transferred from the server room to
  99. the common room (N109). Its HDD was formatted, and Ubuntu 11.10
  100. installed along with XBMC.
  101. As of April 2012, Ceiling Cat returned triumphant to the newly cleaned
  102. and organized server room where it serves its original purpose as an
  103. admin desktop machine.
  104. As of April 2013, Ceiling Cat has returned to the clouds. It is awaiting
  105. repair.
  106. ## Services

  108. * Amarok
