Two Removes Are Equal To One Fire

Moving into its new home right now.

I've reached the quiet spot between frantic preparation and even more frantic bug-fixing, where the files are doing their final update.  Back to panic mode in 3... 2...

All finished!  Not too much pain involved, either.  Just waiting for the DNS changes to roll out now.

Hi Pixy, I have a question about the server you described over at Ace of Spades HQ —

“a dual-processor quad-core hyper-threaded Xeon E5520 with 24GB of RAM, a 4TB RAID-5 array (using an Adaptec 5805 controller), a 32GB Intel X25-E SSD, redundant power supplies, and a gigabit internet connection, running CentOS 5.3 and OpenVZ.”

— Does this server host all of your sites, or just Ace?

4 It's to host all of and, replacing three smaller servers.  Ace is just one of the biggest sites and was going to be down a little longer because I had to set up the comments server separately, so I posted an announcement there.

There's a second, smaller server in the new arrangement - a quad-core Xeon 3230 with 2GB of RAM - but that's mainly for test and development.  I got that because it came as a special deal with 4TB of bandwidth that I can pool with the main server - for half the price of the bandwidth alone. smile

5 My next question isn’t fair, primarily because it’s none of my business . . . . but . . . how do you make money hosting sites for others, for free, when it requires you to maintain oodles of hardware and software, with no ostensible returns?

6 Damn.  I knew I was doing something wrong. sad

8 Thanks, Pixy! Main menu good--blacklist not so good: "An error occurred: Byte order is not compatible at blib/lib/ (autosplit into blib/lib/auto/Storable/ line 415, at lib/MT/ line 28"

Sorry to be such a pest!

9 Uh-oh.  That's not supposed to happen.

Thanks for the bug reports!

10 Okay, I'll just need to export and re-import the blacklist.  Not a problem.

11 All fixed!

12 Yay! Thanks very much--in gratitude, your chocolate allotment for the month has been increased exponentially... wink

13 When I visit El Robbo, I enter a timewarp to 2005..... I don't think that is right.

15 Hi Any!  Sorry about that.  Robbo mentioned it, and I found that a few sites had done the time warp again.  Should all be fixed now.
