New server up and running

September 14th, 2008

As I mentioned earlier this summer, I built a new server to power several pieces of my network at home as well as my website and email services.  After much testing and careful planning, I can now happily say that the website is running on this new server.  The site is now much more responsive thanks to larger memory and other resource allocations than it had previously.  Luckily, this transition happened with very few issues, so most would not have noticed the change until this announcement.  Read on for more details about the server.

New server coming soon

July 10th, 2008

For those interested, I am building a new server that will end up hosting and many other services within the next couple months.  I have already put together a decently powerful computer that is running CentOS 5 and allows for multiple virtual machines to run simultaneously.  These virtual machines will replace the following existing hardware and server instances: my webcam server, my home web server, my home router/firewall server, and my virtualized web/email server currently hosted by RimuHosting.  More info to come on this little project!  I hope to share more details on my final hardware and software configuration.
