You know when grown-ups tell you everything's going to be fine, and you think they're probably lying to make you feel better?

New Toy: Momoko

I have a server!  Well, I've had a server since 2003 1997.  But this one is in Sydney, instead of hiding on the other side of the planet.

Australia is not generally a cost-effective location for server hosting, but thanks to the nice people at Exigent I was able to get a very good price on an older model Dell updated with new SSDs.

It only runs at 2.4GHz, but it has 8 cores (16 threads), 24GB ECC RAM, and a RAID-1 pair of SSDs, so it's very capable.  Plus a gigabit internet connection and 10TB monthly bandwidth.

But best of all, it's only 15ms from home (and about 3ms from the office).  That makes an enormous difference; my usual ping times to the servers are in the range of 170-200ms.

And I installed OpenVZ on it without breaking anything.  So as far as that goes I'm having a good day.
