Sins of a Dune Empire

Ξ February 18th, 2008 | → 0 Comments | ∇ special, Status Update |

I’ve been playing Sins of a Solar Empire a lot lately. It’s a fantastic 4X RTS. It’s like a galactic scale Starcraft meets Civilization. I’ve also taken up building a Dune themed map for it. logikal is helping me with it a bunch. So far I’ve got players for House Atreides, House Harknonnen, House Corrino, House Vernius, House Richese, and I plan on adding the Bene Tleilax and maybe the Zensunni. I’ll keep this updated with the status.

Disruption

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.

AMD and the future of a 2U

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.
