Okay, I was wrong about FurryMuck's new machine. Drew and a housemate of mine (who probably wants to remain nameless in regards to this) went out and purchased a new rackmount machine for FurryMuck. It's a dual- 933 Mhz processor intel box with 1 Gig of PC133 SDRAM, and a pair of mirrored drives for 18Gig disk space, all in a 1-U high rackmount case.

Translating that for non tech savvy folks, that means it's fast. For FurryMuck, really really fast. The muck will be able to run fully in-memory, and the machine itself can run MUF code at roughly 10 times the speed of Furry's current machine.

Bye bye server lag. When this is running, if you see lag, it will be the network, not Furry's machine.

    Was each link made from two pieces, or was there fill material inside that you removed? I'm having trouble seeing how to print these in a makerbot-compatible way (though I could just be overlooking…

    Nah. It'd just take a dissolvable support material and higher resolution. There are commercial 3d printers out there that can print ball bearing assemblies in one pass, fully assembled.

    Nice! ^_^ I was going to be flabbergasted if you were actually able to print it as a unit, but I guess that would take antigravity.

    I printed each piece individually and assembled them after some cleanup. I did print four segments at a time, though, unattached, in a 2x2 grid.
