recycle.lbl.gov (188.8.131.52) is an AMD Athlon64 3500+ computer, using a MSI K8T Neo2 motherboard in an Antec Sonata case. This beautiful, fast, and quiet machine was assembled by CCI Computers in October, 2004. It runs Debian wheezy-amd64 Linux at LBNL.
News: On 2015-06-22, this machine suffered a disk crash. I have restored most, but not all, of its previous functionality on a newer (but recycled!) platform. Ssh host keys are changed again.
Old News: On 2008-02-10, user accounts on this machine were temporarily disabled. They were restored on 2008-02-12 after Debian kernel 2.6.24-4 was installed, fixing CVE-2008-0010, CVE-2008-0163, and CVE-2008-0600. See Debian bug #464945.
Old News: On 2006-07-13, user accounts on this machine were temporarily disabled. They were restored after the patch for CVE-2006-2451 was installed.
Old News: This machine suffered a disk crash during a power failure on February 28, 2006. Only a handful of user files were lost, but the system setup took some time to recover. The only lasting and visible effect is a change in the ssh host key. If you used ssh to connect before that date, you need to trash the old entry in your ssh client known_hosts table.
I have kept this name through several generations of computers: previous incarnations have been a 400 MHz Pentium II from 1999, a 90 MHz Pentium Classic from 1995, and a 25 MHz i386 from 1992. All running Linux, of course.
