My workstation 'trail' is one of my computers in my lab. You can read about its disk configuration.

This is my recording workstation for the booth in my studio. The hardware for this workstation used to be my auxiliary workstation 'tradition'.


NIC Interface IP Address Cable
Onboard Ethernet Red


These are the parts I kept when I made 'trail' from 'tradition'.

Old parts

These are bits and pieces which were in 'tradition' and 'trick' but which are no longer in use in 'trail'. Some of these parts are spare and some have been installed in a new home. The 6TB drives got moved to 'charisma'.
