New Server, Sorta

I’ve moved the blog to a new server.  If any of you were noticing an outage, that is why.  Unfortunately, it’s actually not as fast as our previous server, which sucks, but if I’m going to replace it, I’ll need to the blog running on something else so I’m not having to deal with a lot of downtime for the blog while I get the new digs up and running.  If you want to see what I’m running on, take a look here.  Makarov provided for scale:

Small Server

It’s a pretty old box.  1.2GHz Celeron, 256MB PC100 RAM, old laptop hard drive, running Ubuntu 8.10 Server.  My eventual goal is to have a server that can handle a full on, no-holds, Instalanche.  This little guy isn’t up to the task, at least not without a gig or so more RAM.  In the past, links from Instapundit have melted my box, so I’m going to provision a new box that can handle Glenn’s traffic.  So enjoy running on this small box for a bit, folks.  Hopefully it won’t be too painfully slow.

    are you looking for parts donations, or just socking away for a few months?

    Not looking for donations. The new machine will be on order shortly.

    Where’d you get that little guy?

    (Not the Makarov.)

    It actually belongs to a friend. I borrowed it because I needed a small machine to be able to take around with me to run NRA commercials at guns shows, but I just ended up using my laptop instead. I will have to give it back when the new server arrives.
