We Need a New Server

Recommended Posts

update:

stuff that has arrived:

eps12v power supply

memory

raid cards

hard drives

ups itself

ups exapnder

ups cables

stuff that is supposedly on the way:

motherboard

cpus

I say supposedly because each would have been shipped over a week ago, and they still aren't here.

I also had to buy 4 new power supplies, silver thermal paste, a new monitor, and a new kvm switch. whatever happened in the studio took out a lot of equipment.

for this I am also buying a $200 APC 1400 watt UPS.

so if anyone else is thinking of donating, I am currently ~$600 out of my pocket on this stuff.

no, this is not your guys' problem, but I am not above asking for more help.

================================

well, our new database server turned out to be a dud.

if anyone has access to hardware, or can donate $, we need:

dual pentium 3 or xeon motherboard, with 1.25 GHz or better CPUs.

if the mobo takes PC133 memory, I am all set past that. otherwise will need a gig of ram too.

otherwise, things around here are just going to continue to be ugly.

revan07 just donated $200, so if we can get about 200 or so more together, we are golden. if nobody donates, I will do it myself as soon as I have the extra $ to spare.

you guys rock!

$266.97 towards some new hardware so far.

<_<

been checking around ebay, and its looking like roughly $400 to get a motherboard and cpus that will match the rest of the hardware I have.

by the way, in case anyone was wondering, I went to the studio and there was a electrical burning smell in the air.

not a good thing when you are around computers.

I swear to the holy power of Dtrades Cain... that if my God decides to flip my life switch from "Sucks Ass" back to "Normal" then I will get you that (what was it?) like 400$ ad money to you asap.

And you won't even need to put up my ad yet (My newb one is in sig) because we'll still need to set up orders and shop... blah blah.

GOD I'M SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS!!!

so far, one of these 2 candidates looks like the new mobo:

http://cgi.ebay.com/Tyan-Thunder-i7500-Dua...1QQcmdZViewItem

http://cgi.ebay.com/Tyan-Thunder-S2720_W0Q...1QQcmdZViewItem

there is one other candidate that has 2 1.8 gig xeon cpus, but unless it has built-in scsi I can't use it.

this will mean needing new power supply, cpus and memory, but performance will go up at least 50%, and no more mysql errors (I hope).

here's the memory I want to get:

http://cgi.ebay.com/Kingston-ValueRAM-1GB-...1QQcmdZViewItem

cpu's:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewI...me=STRK:MEWA:IT

power supply:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewI...me=STRK:MEWA:IT

put it all together and I need about another $150. hopefully some others of you will step up and help out the site...otherwise we all wait until I get paid next week.

OH GOODIE!

w00t!

my main man enzo just donated $200 to the cause...and I am just waiting on revan07s $200 to clear on tuesday.

plus what other people donated, plus what little I had already (minus fees) we now have 455.45 in the pot.

44.55 to go, and I should have enough to not only replace the db server, but also finish upgrading the rest of the machines.

COME ON GUYS, ROB YOUR PIGGY BANKS AND GIVE BACK!

even a couple bucks from a bunch of people will help.

whatever $ is leftover I will be donating to the United Way for Katrina, so no matter what you are helping somebody!

dude MAYBE 12 people donate over the cours eof a month, and normally that doesnt even total $20.

and here you are 15 donating $20 just like that.

and you are worried that it's not enough.

wow, thats what I call dedication.

I have updated everyone's donations stars that I could see or remember.

if I missed you please pm me and tell me your donation total and email address.

this is by far the best donation run we have had since this site opened. I have enough to get all of the hardware now, but if you feel like donating, I will be using the remaining funds to help pay October's line bill, and donating about $50 to the United Way for Katrina in your guys' name.

that will go on top of the $ donated earlier this month, and the staff's donations, which should total about $100 donated in the site's name for Katrina relief.

not bad for a bunch of Diablo geeks.

I may need a bit more to purchase the rest of the memory and hard drives, but right now things look good.

but if you are going to donate, the $ will be needed sooner or later, and I want to get to a $100 donation level for Katrina anyway. right now we are at $64 for that.

it has to wait anyway...I lost the mobo auction.

it would have gone to $300 plus anyway, which is outrageous.
