Yanno… I’ve just been playing around with Apache2, Mysql and PHP and decided.. I’m creating and hosting my own blog.  I already host half a dozen other websites, so I figured what the hell is one more on the load?  Especially with this fandangled new server I just slapped together.

System Specs as follows:

  • Intel i7-960 @ 3.2 GHz
  • 4 GByte Crucial Ballistix DDR3 @ 1600 MHz
  • EVGA NVidia GeForce 430 w/ 1GByte RAM
  • Asus Sabretooth X58
  • 3x 500 GByte Western Digital Green Drives
  • 2x 2 TByte Seagate Black Drives
  • 1x 250 Gbyte Seagate Black Drive
  • LG DVD Writer

Final price after rebates?  About $550.  I already had the hard drives and the memory on hand.  Otherwise, I can’t complain for a SERVER computer.

Anyway — I’m  at work and supposed to be doing stuff constructive for them on their dime, instead I administer my own system remotely.  Irony? Why I think yes!

EDIT: Oh yeah — over there is my random pieces of writing that I sometimes get the urge to crap out.  Have a gander.
