Power (oh my god)

by on Sep.27, 2007, under blog.species5618.net, Computers, Geekdom, Technology, Unbelievable

got my self one of those domestic power meters and been around the house,

HOLY FUCK !!!!

Need to change my storage strategy, the Compaq RA4100 fibre channel chassis with 12 disk may well be over kill, but it is also DAMN expensive to run,
and I have NO idea why the UPS is pulling 100Watts with NO load !!!

??As i am only ising the storage for archive type stuff not “live” apps, I am planning to replce it with an external USB2 disk,
the Cost Recovery Period will be less than 4 months !

Not sure what to do about the server though, it is runnign AD, Exchange, VMware server with VOIP PBX and dansguardian ….

Tosser on a bus

by on Sep.20, 2007, under blog.species5618.net, Technology, Unbelievable

Fairly normal morning, buses actually running to timetable, unlike tuesday !

So I got on the No10 bus, at the bus-stop right outside Hucclecote Library (opposite the Royal Oak public house if you dont do librarys) only to find a tosser playing crap rap very loudly on his mobile phone,

So here is a picture of Mr Tosser for everyone to see !!!!

blog.Species5618.net has new home

by on Apr.28, 2006, under blog.species5618.net, Geekdom, Technology

I have got my self a virtual dedicated linux server hosted in a pucker internet datacentre,
A virtual dedicated server is a entire real installation of a linux server to which i have full root access but on a shared hardware platform, making it cost roughtly 50% less than a proper dedicated box

So this blog is no longer coming from a old DELL desktop stuffed under a desk in my home……

Now all I need is a few customers to help cover the costs

If anyone is interested it ony took me about 90 minutes to migrate this entire blog and my mambo site
I have even started to use VI line editor to make minor config changes !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now for the impressive bit :-
The ISP took 87 minutes to deliver my server after I placed the order.
now that is impressive !
