Clarification: it was my idea, it was the Tahoe-LAFS Software
Foundation (nascent) which agreed to spend some of the money that
people have donated to buy you that device, and it was Peter Secor who
did the work of buying the device and shipping it to you.

We even have a buildslave dedicated to testing it, triggered
automatically every time a patch is committed to trunk:


Hm, I see that it hit a timeout when the RunNode test_introducer test
hadn't finished in 480 seconds. I wonder if it was making progress but
it legitimately took longer than 480 seconds or if it was hung. I kind
of doubt that legitimate progress on that (basic) test could take that
long. :-( So there appears to be a problem.

I'm pushing a patch which raises the timeout to 960 seconds...
