    I don't have to click on the link to see that it has "Sun" in it - and it's expensive because it's a Sun product :o

    It's Sun. Everything they make is expensive. Damn good stuff though.

    crontab will see this thread i'm sure

    that server is one of the most powerful pieces of hardware they offer, we had some 10k and 15k's at my previous employer

    You can do A LOT of intense things with those servers, large DB's etc...
