Re: Anyone running MP Alpha systems?

I Have a CS20 running NetBSD 7.0 with the GENERIC.MP kernel, I've not
been doing much with it except compiled kernels and some packages.
It's currently offline since it generates a bit too much heat... Maybe
I should fire it up again an see for how long it will run?
