I will be moving tomorrow to somewhere in central Orange County. I can’t say where, because its Tustin Ranch. I’m not sure yet if it’s a real city. Anyway, my point is that some services will be disrupted while enterprise is being moved. DNS should be fine, but obviously anything thats hosted or running on enterprise will be unreachable. I should be setting up enterprise’s replacement in the next couple of weeks, with an actual data center for it to live at.

I’d like to sit on your couch and write some checks

Or instead, use this opportunity to talk about how by this point I’m willing to settle for a point and shoot digital camera. Like the Nikon Coolpix S9. However, for just a few dollars more, and I’m not even talking about the price of a dinner out at a moderately priced restaurant.
You probably have the cash in your wallet right now. For those few extra dollars, the S7c could be in your hands, briefly before you wrap it up for me.
No, you know what? I don’t even want it wrapped. I don’t even want it in the box.
It’s not as though I’d cry if a D80 or D50 didn’t magically fall from the sky into my arms. Not very much at any rate.

The Burning Crusade

Ξ October 28th, 2006 | → 0 Comments | ∇ special, Tech, Special Attention Required |

I think we require some organization here. I volunteer for this, provided there are no complaints or whining of any kind. teamslack will live again, and thrive.

We need a complete front end splash page
a forum very categorized
a clear idea of what will happen and when and how we’ll be set up

Our current “solutions” require much to be clarified. This includes the order of our posts and general order of what is going to go down.

AMD and the future of a 2U

Ξ October 2nd, 2006 | → 0 Comments | ∇ special, rack, sovreign, Status Update, News from the front, Server Stuff, Special Attention Required |

Enterprise NCC-1701-E, the 2U designed to outclass and outperform its predecessor is nearing its final construction stages.
I’m going to use the AMD cooling system vs the alternative one I bought; I’ll keep an eye on temperature. It has a decent number of fans, I do not think cooling will be a problem with this case.
I’ve nearly secured space, but there are a few questions I must determine myself before committing. Estimated time to completion is one to two weeks until its online and performing admirably.

Something wicked this way comes

Once I solve the mounting cpu fan issue, I need to install and test the following:

I’m having issues with postfix at the moment.
Implementing a backp system on my current system as practice
Email supporting IMAP
webmail interface that doesn’t look like squirrels or something worse.
Determining how I want to do DNS
Figuring out evms

This has to be solved roughly by Sunday. I’ve secured rackspace already, at least.

For this cruel unsaid, won’t concede.

The fan plate is of the wrong type for the board. This confuses and frightens me. I will either solve this with additional mana or have faith in AMD’s ability to build a decent heatsink and fan. The board is built for a cpu plate with four screw holes in each corner. The third party one I bought has only two, and they are positioned in such a way that I can’t even rotate it 45 degrees to rig something together.
This completely halts my plans. It will remain in a disassembled state on the floor in my living room.
