Hey guys!

More good news!!! So the new server center located in my basement in a dedicated room is almost ready!!! The internet line is here blazing at 80M down and 17M up for the website!! (Right now we only have 10MB up) I have installed 2 dedicated 20 amp circuits for the server and all networking equipment. The server runs on 2 plugs, so this ensures redundancy circuit wide. I also installed a 30A generator circuit which is NOT hooked up quite yet. In the mean time, extension cords work.

I also got my office all wired up with a hard wired battery backup that will also be in the server room.

This entire project cost $325 + $365 for the new router + 2, 18 hour, solid days of work, which isn't bad compared to the builders who wanted $2500. I'm not asking for donations as I've already paid for everything but if you are feeling generous, you know the address.

I am planning to get the server over here very very shortly. I'm thinking late Wednesday or Thursday after I verify that this line is reliable. There will be approximately 4 - 8 hours of downtime overnight and the site won't be available while this happens. The static IP has changed because the location changed. Nothing I can do about that except re-program the DNS to reflect the new IP's

Some pictures are attached too! No, my desk/monitor situation is NOT complete

The server move went good last night! Started around 11:30AM. Got it all moved over and hooked up right away and was propegated for the most part by 1:30AM. Here is a picture of the server center BETA .90 :violent: :help:

Image

The top server in that stack of 3 is the current one, with the old ones under it LOL.

More work will commence today. Waiting for a new hammerdrill to come via USPS to aid with the concrete drilling...

More pictures to come later! :D

Thanks!

We got major connection problems at this point. The modem they gave me was a used, beat up POS... It crashed several times over the last couple days. Comcast will be here within 2 hours to replace it with a brand new one.

Sorry for any inconvenience this might cause!

Thanks!

3G wireless in the middle of nowhere,in a valley no less.No cell signal most times but it is quiet. There is a lot of nowhere in Minnesota.We live in a campground in a 31 ft trailer. :D
