Personal workstation service

Skullspace has many shared workstations, but they lack your personal touch.

Putting down your own workstation wastes much needed space.

The personal workstation service provides an easy way to turn our communal workstations into your own personal workstation while you use it.

This achieved by adding an iPXE boot option to each Skullspace workstation (in addition to the local OSes) and by hosting iPXE configurations and iSCSI targets on vmsrv. Once installed, booting your own personal workstation is just a matter of selecting the iPXE boot option, selecting your personal machine, and voila!

And for those using an OS that can boot across hardware configurations (basically, anything other than Windows), they is the bonus of portability, you can boot your personal workstation from any Skullspace workstation!
