If you have seen a few outages over the weekend in NZ, it is because with Lyn off in India running classes (BTW: thanks for the great response* 🙂 ), I’ve been up at nights upgrading my old server to take The Standard and moving it off my development system.
So the ‘old’ motherboard is now on the server box. My development server has a hot (220W!) AMD processor and the data is properly protected with power supplies and replicated locally and offshore. But most importantly, I have my development server back so that I can
play games do some serious work like finishing the failover server in Sydney.
It was a real pain having the site on my development system because I couldn’t reboot the system as often as I needed to do. My server box runs things like mail systems and has minimal updating. But you’ll be pleased to know that I don’t tinker with that system a lot, because its screen is the TV.
* That was rather impressive. She spent the last few days before leaving last weekend chasing bargains from suppliers to make the extra money go a long way. Then discarding clothes so she could pack the gear in 🙂
