• New BBS box

    From Poindexter Fortran to All on Wednesday, March 06, 2013 17:12:40

    I've got a new box primed for the BBS, and am starting to move services over to it. Please do me a favor; I've moved the music streams over to it first. If you could listen to the music streams at http://radio.realitycheckbbs.org:8000, I'd like to test the box out and make sure it's stable.

    The new box is a 3.4 Ghz Pentium 4 HT, 2 GB of RAM, and a 500 GB ATA drive; it's the last ATA drive I'll ever buy. I bought it as a backup for the old BBS and never got around to using it until now. Luckily, this new box has both ATA and SATA.

    Right now it's running XP; eventually I'll tear down the XP VM it's running on now and make it into a Linux VM. I'd like to move the BBS to Linux some time in 2014 and to a virtual server some time after that.
