So I grabbed a V100 for cheap since that's all we really need. No root password of course, so went to grab a CD image of Sparc Solaris - 10 or 11, may as well get 11, might be slightly better (hope springs eternal.)

System error. Please re-try your action. If you continue to get this error, please contact the Administrator.
With no indication anywhere of where or how to "contact the Administrator," of course. I should go to church and pray, maybe. Will the voice of Larry speak to us from the tabernacle ?
This is Oracle, the biggest, baddest, most elite force in high-tech computing. And they can't run a fucking website. What kind of braindead ignorant useless pieces of shit are these people ?
Which brings me to the question : Solaris wasn't that bad to run. Blastwave had what I needed, I got it easily, the thing gave me no trouble at all. I could ignore it entirely for years (considering how pleasant Solaris is to use, that's a good thing.) But if these useless lobotomized knuckle-draggers can't even run a website, I'm tempted to tell them to go fly a kite (or words to that effect.) Is it worth putting up with their stupidity to run Sun software on Sun hardware ? I'm not keen on the alternatives but Oracle seems to be about as incompetent as they come ... if I have to put up with stupidity and hassles I may as well go the kumbaya route. Hey Sky ! I thought "professionals" knew what they were doing? It seems like if you go to the trouble of using obsolete hardware, you should stick with the obsolete software that it was designed for but these guys are not making it pleasant ? or even tolerable ... any thoughts on the subject ?
