I got this awesome switch from @nihl.
It's a Dell N2048. With a fan mod, which makes it pretty silent. It's gonna be so much more fun than the noisy Nortel I had before.
Thank you Nihl!

Updated the firmware to, disabled all these weird hiveagent and support-assist stuff, and configured ssh pubkey auth.

Looks like that hiveagent thing was an application written in python, and you can somehow upload and install more of those apps.

Oh, and if you `dir ../..` it reveals that it's really Linux under the hood. There's even busybox in `../../bin`. I wonder if I could make a python app that'd let me start a normal posix shell (as opposed to this switch CLI, which, while nice, doesn't let you look around the filesystem too much - there's no cat).

Anyway, that'll have to wait for a later time, got work to do.

@Wolf480pl You're welcome, I'm very happy to see hardware that served me so well being used instead of sitting on a shelf collecting dust!
