Hi all,

Just wanted you all to know that we pulled the trigger on the new server today. Thanks for all the support which lets us get some top notch stuff...

Here's a listing of hardware for you geeks:

1 x Antec 4U Rackmount case w/ power ATX550EPS
1 x Tyan Dual Opteron Mobo - Thunder K8W
2 x AMD Opteron 246
2 x DDRAM 2GB TwinX2048RE-3200
2 x 10K RPM Western Digital Raptors 74GB
1 x FD 1.44MB Sony Black
1 x DVD+/-RW SONY DW-D22A-B2 Black
1 x Linksys Switch 5 port

We've also worked a deal with the ISP to give us 22U of rack space and 2x bandwidth throughput with no limits for an additional monthly fee that is extremely reasonable. We will probably be leaving the old server in there to act as a file/mail server for the main site and run all the DB stuff off the new machine. This should be sweet! I will be working on this project over the next couple of weeks and will keep you guys updated.

Awesome, I've been thinking of posting as message: So, how much do I need to pay to get the server upgraded, I hate waiting devil

Thanks to everyone whose donations have helped support this wonderful site!

Glad to see that, even though the server sits in a rack in an uninhabited room somewhere, you still got the black drives to give it that extra touch of class

Thank U Aldie!
Keep up the good work.

My daughter still wants that autographed photo of the GeekSpeak stars (in spite of Derk's reported dome).... She thought that it was cool to be mentioned in episode 11.

Cheers and Happy Holidays!

Don't understand any of that stuff, but I'm sure I once saw a pair of Western Digital Raptors in Antwerp Zoo.

Ahhhh, OK?
I understood everything up to the point where you say "...hardware for you geeks:"

Then it becomes jibberish. Still, it sounds very nice & I wish you well with it...

Western Digital Raptors
Your basic Western Digital Raptor is louder and more noisier than your standard Jurassic Park Raptor.

It's a known fact.

Nice Choice
I'm a big AMD fan lately, especially since I bought the stock a while back.

I have XP64 system, I'll have to say I've been waiting for Micro-soft to finish there OS so I can see play a few new games. SUSE Linux is wonderul for some stuff but when it comes to video games LINUX is sorely lacking.

That list tells me just how much my computer knowledge is out-of-date, since I retired! I only recognize a few of those items, but it sounds impressive! Congratulations!!

"Its a known fact."

Oh man, I nearly wet myself. I used to have a girlfriend who would whip that one out frequently in any difference of opinion. (I wouldn't call them arguments, just part of her way of defending her point of view.) WHAT THE HELL CAN YOU SAY TO THAT? Nothing. But she was hot, so I never really cared. She confounded me with her logic many times. I enjoyed every one of them.

This kind of stuff makes it feel really good to have a "BGG Supporter" badge under my avatar.

BTW Aldie... "Princess?" Did I miss something?

I am very glad to contribute to the getting of boss hardware.

It's always good to get boss hardware.

Hopefully the Western Digitals work out; I would have preferred to see Seagates or even Maxtors....

Cornjob,

You need to pull out this quote from Futurama.
