How/where the machine was obtained

History prior to arriving to UCC

Patience was one of the machines that UCC received from Electrical Engineering at the end of Semester 2 2009.

UCC machine history

Ever since it arrived, patience has been a contentious issue due to many members believing it to be a waste of space, while others think that it is one of the more "useful" club machines.

Current machine tasks

Currently, patience is used primarily as a "work" machine as it is unable to play steam games so is usually free for use.

Current software configuration

  • Windows 2000 Professional

Current hardware configuration

  • Intel Pentium III 550MHz
  • 256MiB RAM
  • 13 GB Hard Disk

Future plans for the machine

Depending on which camp wins the conflict about its usefulness, it will either gain a new harddisk or be thrown out the window.
