Being installed is a quad-core Linux monster, with RAID and lots of RAM & drive space. It has more than 4 times the capacity in almost any way you'd want to measure it of the server it is replacing. We're getting a new firewall for it too.
This process hasn't been cheap and is the first of several server swaps. If you can find it in your hearts & wallets to kick in a few extra bucks, it'll help pay for the new hardware and help me get some sleep. I'm not asking for sympathy, but I'm on call 24/7 with a phone by my bed to keep these old machines up, and that's the truth. Those calls have come at all hours 87 times since September 2010; let's fix this.
If you donate $25 or more, I'll personally write your name in permanent marker on a server top cover here. I'm serious.
Justin didn't ask me to do this, and probably won't be happy with the magic marker, but hey, I know how much this new iron & bandwidth costs and I don't make a dime from any of it, so pony up those Andrew Jacksons and let's ink in this cover.
Who is first?
Code, I dont know if I'm too new a user to get PMs, but if I can, send me one. I would like to make a specialized donation of helping you add to that RAID, but need to know if it would even be useful first.
