I've thought about it some more and I don't think it's going to be worth trying to keep that box running right now. Rather than go buy a zip disc (I have a drive but no disc), I can go right down the street to the RRISD surplus store and get a cheap computer that'll have a nominally good hard drive in it, cannibalize it for parts, or whatever.

This weekend, when I get a lull, I'll just go ahead and cannibalize that computer for parts to improve performance on the webserver, and move the gameserver and master server back to my other computer.

My life would be a lot simpler if I had a computer budget. :/ (I convinced my wife we need one, now I just need to increase my income slightly to get it)

Dammit. Now the web server broke down, bad motherboard. Won't even give me BIOS. :(

So I'm taking the hard drive out of it and putting it into the former game server. This is starting to get on my nerves.

Ok, up again with the web server. So the wiki is up.

And I didn't have to install Mandriva 2005 to get it, I'm so happy about that. I'm not sure it didn't take longer, though, but I'd rather have a more up to date system.

Wow, you are having the absolute worst time with that Lucifer... It's almost rediculous...

It's what happens when you use spare parts. Heh.

Got a game server and a master server back up now.
