M-Series Update

Order placed - 61.5% discount, yay!

Between this and the great deal I got on Akane Mk III, we should be good for a couple of years.

Where'd The Internet Go?

I can only reach small randomly distributed parts of it.  Fortunately including mu.nu/mee.nu.

Can't get to isitdownorjustme.com, which is alanic.

Hmm.  Seems to be my ISP.  My backup connection works.

Midori & Momoko

New servers this week: Midori and Momoko.

These will replace Mikan; the reason is that SoftLayer are finally running their elusive "triple double" special at a time when I can take advantage of it.

Generally, they run either a double-memory-and-disk special or a double-bandwidth special.  I got Mikan on a double-bandwidth special.  That means it has 4TB of bandwidth (which is pooled with Akane/Aoi), but only 2GB of memory and a single 250GB disk (I later added another 1TB drive).

With the "triple double" special I get double memory, disk, and bandwidth for no extra charge, so the plan is to get two low-end boxes like that (Xeon 3050 dual-core servers).  That will give us 10TB of primary bandwidth (as well as the 100TB of media cache thingy bandwidth we have from Kurumi) which should keep us happy for a while.

But It's A Good Hurt

Okay, I have the video player updated and I have working streaming MP4.  (See below.)

It was a pain to find the right combination of utilities and settings to do this, but the result speaks for itself - the video playback is smooth and detailed even in fullscreen mode on a 21" monitor.

You may need to give it a couple of seconds at startup to pre-buffer; I may be able to tweak a setting for that.  Other than that, it's beautiful.

Updates

Just updated my licences so we can upgrade to Innova Editor 4.2 and JW Player 5.1.

Now I just need to crawl out from under this pile of servers and find the time to actually do that.
