Welcome flandre.sr.ht to the list of sr.ht hosts, the first to run a non-x86_64 architecture (POWER9)


@sir Is there a specific reason you have chosen a non-x86_64 arch? Just cause, or are you looking for real-life benchmarks to see if a different arch could perform the sr.ht workload better?

@tristan957 (1) I want to encourage portability across architectures (2) this board runs 100% free software, down to the firmware (3) POWER is now an open and royalty free architecture

@tristan957 also it's the only non-x86_64 architecture whose performance is competitive with x86_64
