Title: Problems solved
Post by: zaqrack on March 09, 2003, 01:30:53 AM
Well,well...
today my home server was set up, so please welcome him:

Intel P100, 1GB HD, 32MB RAM, 12kb/sec uplink, running freebsd.

Not so much, but enough for a home router
AND

for an SQL server.
From today the site's database has been moved to this computer. It's almost 24h online, but because my provider drops my connection every 24th hour, the DNS forwarding must re-initialize, and it can take 1 minute up to 1 hour. During this time databases (scores, forum) are unavailable.

This machine is not only hosting the SQL database, but I directly edit the files and the DB here, so you pipsqueaks, and please ONLY pipsqueaks can access the latest stuff always (when not reiniting) at:
http://stunts.bsd.st

Site is directly mirrored of course to http://zak.webdream.hu which is open to the public.
12kb/sec is not much, but should be enough for us, pipsqueaks, who want to check out latest scores, and use the forum. Please note that it's the connection and server I use at home, so if you overload and/or abuse it I'll be really pissed off and shut it down.

web based IRC client is only available from webdream for security reasons.

so, feel free to use http://stunts.bsd.st as a backup, or instead of http://zak.webdream.hu

hope you'll be more satisfied with the site

Zak

p.s.: th following two week is testing phase. If my connection will be overloaded I'll apply some restrictions.

Unbelievable parameters after 10 years.

indeed :) I don't know the date we moved to the hosted server - it was well worth the monthly fee of 4EUR.

However, internet seemed to work better than now.

In 2005, my low class notebook was fast with Windows XP (256 MB RAM, 1.3 GHz CPU).
In 2013, XP runs incredibly slow, even with 3 GB RAM and 2.0 GHz dual core...
