Tanarotte

In keeping with the convention of petite anime schoolgirl goddesses - more or less - I'm building a new server for PixyLabs and naming it Tanarotte.

I was going to build another little storage cube and name it Sugar (I already have Pepper and Salt), but they ran out of the Acer EasyStore systems I was using, and anything similar now costs about twice as much.  Since I already had a spare case sitting around, it would only cost me about $100 more* to get a whole new server.  So I did.

Details: Phenom II X4 945 95W CPU, Gigabyte GA-MA790GP-UD4H, 4 x Corsair 2GB DDR2-1066 CAS 5 RAM, 6 x 1TB Seagate 7200.12 SATA HDD, Pioneer 218 IDE DVD burner**, Lian Li PC V-600B case plus EX-23NB drive bay kit, Corsair HX-520 modular PSU.  Fedora 11 64-bit plus OpenVZ.

* Well, I ended up spending another $200 to expand it from 4TB to 6TB, and another $100 to go from a dual-core CPU to quad core, so in the end it was really $400 more.  Which is what always happens once you start down this route... 
** The IDE DVD drive is because the motherboard only has six SATA ports and I want to install six disk drives.

1 "Tanarotte" -- great choice!!

2 Only problem is it doesn't quite fit the naming convention.  The goddess in question is supposed to also be the lead character (which Tanarotte isn't, really) and be the titular character of the show.

But near enough.

Furthermore, Tanarotte hasn't expressed an affinity yet. She's divine but neither god nor demon.

Still, it's a good choice.

5 If you mean where it says 6 Comments but only shows 2, that's because I did a bulk spam zap.  I need to run the little utility that fixes the comment counts.  I need to find the little utility that fixes the comment counts...

Nah, I figured that was what was going on with those...I mean that non-spammy comments vanished nearly everything after August 18th.

I know I deleted at least one in error when I deleted a particularly large wave of pulled pork shoulder, but several others vanished sometime after that. Note that all nonspam comments made since Friday are still up.

I am amused that this spammer is named "ugg".

7 That happened here, too, temporarily. For a while Pixy's "most recent comments" list all were from 2008 some time. It seems to have been a transient condition, though.

Well, it just happened here again, sort of. Pixy's "recent comment" sidebar is now several days out of date.

By the way, Pixy, stay indoors! Don't you be suffocating on the dust, now!

10 Ah, yeah, that's the same problem.  The bulk spam kill messes up the recent comment lookup as well.

I need to write a proper bulk despamming routine.

11 I wonder if all the effort was worth it. Anyway congrats for you. You know what you are doing. All the best. Firme de curatenie
