    Default Huge Grid Computer

    Guys,
    I wanted to joke with you all. This is my server that runs my website with drupal and mysql.


    It's a huge GRID. lol


    Just kidding,
    I am running my blog from here, its pretty cool. This is the corner of my office at my house.
    This is a centos 5.4 server running a LAMP stack. I bought this server for $50.00 on ebay.

    Sweet

    PS:
    I did not install the wallpaper!! It was here when I moved in.

    Well,
    I do not pay for electric in my apartment so I was not concerned about that factor. I have a cable internet connection that is really fast and I purchased a router / firewall from linksys that allows for the security and port forwarding needed.

    I also knew that it will take a long time and a lot of data to start getting a lot of traffic. When that happens I will switch to a hosted solution.

    For now the entire experience has been fun. I am running VMWARE as well, so I plan to install everything a small company would use for learning. BIND, DNS , NIS / YP or LDAP, EMAIL , PROXY etc.......

    I know that the machine is limited so I have been looking into some cool small linux systems.

    I am facing the cooling issues this week with the Summer here in the States kicking off. There is a large picture window that the sun sets into and it gets hot. Over the Winter it was fine, but now I may need a small A/C unit in there to compensate. As for the noise, to my surprise it is really not that loud. And I can close the door to the room in the evening.

    I'd be interested to know what powers nixcraft and its blog? What kind of hardware does nixcraft run on?
