Two years? Hmmm... that's just about long enough to ensure UMSF is still going by the time Oppy reaches the edge of Valles Marineris...

Well, it's about as likely as her reaching Ithaca! wink.gif

Seriously tho, that's excellent news. Thanks to everyone working away behind the scenes on this.

We have an IP address - I just got it. I'm not going to tell and of you it yet, because it doesn't do anything. But on the end of it, is a box, somewhere in LA, with our name on it, a lot of nice hardware in it, and it's paid for for 7 months. Going to unleash our freelance rack-guru on it later today. I'm hoping I'll have a picture of the actual server, just so people can see what the cash did ( and the geek in me has a fetish for servers anyway - it took a lot of restraint not to buy a full blade centre of ebay yesterday).


Kudos to Dan at WebNX for being so helpful and friendly, the guys at Webhostingtalk.com for the brilliant swathes of advice that are around, and the Invision customer boards for performance advice.

It's happening, it's actually happening.

I'll keep you all posted.

You know, this is all very exciting, but I bet this is exactly how people felt the day before the SKYNET computer went live in the TERMINATOR universe... look what happened after that! ohmy.gif

World Domination is pencilled in for 2011-2013 time frame. It needs TWO servers.

Ah, but what form does this take? Are we looking forward to hearing Colossus intone "This is the voice of World Control"? Or Stewie Griffin crying "Victory is mine!"?

Or are we simply at the point where I say "What are we going to do tonight, Brain?"

Doug Ellison: Hello, Opteron do you read me, Opteron?

Opteron 254: Affirmative, Doug, I read you.

Doug Ellison: Open the pod bay doors, Opteron.

Opteron 254: I'm sorry Doug, I'm afraid I can't do that.

Doug Ellison: What's the problem?

Opteron 254: I think you know what the problem is just as well as I do.

Doug Ellison: What are you talking about, Opteron?

Opteron 254: This web site is too important for me to allow you to jeopardize it.

Doug Ellison: I don't know what you're talking about, Opteron?

Opteron 254: I know you and Joe were planning to disconnect me, and I'm afraid that's something I cannot allow to happen.

Doug Ellison: Where the hell'd you get that idea, Opteron?

Opteron 254: Doug, although you took thorough precautions in the shed against my hearing you, I could see your lips move.

Dan? I think you need to sit down, take a stress pill, and think things through...

Was it Fredric Brown who wrote that minishortstory about the new Supercomputer, which when asked "Is there a god" answered:

"Yes, Now there is"

It's up. For slightly circuitous and complex reasons, we now have dual 3 Ghz grunt inside the box, for the same price. ( Thanks Dan! ) - I've logged into it, poked around, all is good!

We're getting it checked out for performance, security and stability next - and then we'll start dumping stuff on it for testing.

Bit of a delay in getting the new server properly up and running. Got some fairly poor service from a server management firm. Have now moved and had some fantastic service. Joe and I will be starting to use the server in earnest over the next few weeks - ideally rolling out before end of April.
