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.
