    May I Present To You....

    newwwpserveret2.jpg

    Happy Holidays, here is the new WWP server. No, this is not the server from LE! I continued down that path for a while, and once he stopped returning my emails I decided to take a different avenue.

    The staff has pulled together and purchased this server with our own money (not donations) in an effort to reduce the overhead of this website. Part of the reason that our monthly colocation cost was so expensive is because we had to lease a strong server to handle the load this site generates. A few days ago we peaked out at 10k users simultaneously browsing, and about 100k visitors in one day - We initially pegged our 10Mbit network which is why the site began going slowly, but once we upgraded to 100Mbit everything went very smoothly.

    The point being that this has been money well spent, and we wouldn't have been able to sustain the traffic caused by Jett's death without it. So thank you.

    So yes, this new server arrived today and I will begin installing it momentarily. This month we will be moving to this server in a new datacenter, and our overall cost will be dropped at least in half to just a little over $400/mo.

    In case you care, here are the specs on the server - feel free to build it yourself on dell.com if you wanna know how much it cost :p

    Dell Poweredge R805 2U rackmount server
    2x AMD 2352 2.1ghz Quadcore processors
    16gb RAM
    2x146GB SAS hdds 10K rpm 2.5" (RAID-1)
    DRAC 5 remote access card
    dvdrom
    4x gigabit nic
    2 year 5x10 next business day on-site support
    etc

    Re: the two servers....

    LE once ran Enturbulation.org. Then his black tooth ass ripped off the server and ran into he night bawwwing. He was later found dead in a pile of psych drugs. The end.

    Re: the two servers....

    Who owns the enturbulation.org domain? That LE's too?

    'Beary', HAHAHA! You see it's funny because it's a bear, so instead of saying 'very' she said BEARY....it's a play on words, get it?!

    sigh

    Thanks mods for that lovely new bit of hardware!

    Re: May I Present To You....

    I swear I posted in this thread....
  14. Gede Member

    Re: May I Present To You....

    You did - the post was moved to its own thread, as I didn't think it was getting enough attention buried in the donations thread.

    Re: May I Present To You....

    So it's safe enough to turn "view avatars" back on? (which I turned off back in the Enturb days because of the DDoSing)

    Let me guess, the dvdrom is for porn.

    Re: May I Present To You....

    I believe it's spelled "pr0n".

    And yeah - either that, or like, installing software and stuff.

  20. nonnonanon Member

    Re: May I Present To You....

    Hope not. I came. Twice.

    That's a well endowed hunk of hardware, da5id, you should post it naked in the dome with the rest of the naughty jpegs :)

    Soon as my local currency gains an exchange rate better than that of the bongolese island fishhead, I am saying thank you in the currency of the rational heart.

    A thing of beauty.

    Question: four bucks a month still sucks. is there any other investment that could reduce that further?

    Re: May I Present To You....

    Right on, the need for horsepower is a good sign.

    Wasted donations back in the enturb days made me feel weary ever since. Maybe time to loosen the purse strings a bit. You're doing good shit it feels like home here.

  31. Re: May I Present To You....

    sooo Michael...do I have this right? When I make a donation to the new server fund, which I shall do next trip to the mail, may I consider your pic also for me?

    thank you very much
  32. exOT8Michael Member

    Re: May I Present To You....

    I made that pic as a gift, actually, for all anons.
    if anyone likes it they can use it freely with no copyrights.
    I am sure your donation will be well used. Just look at the gigantic public response to WWP this week!

    :)
  33. whosit Member

    Re: May I Present To You....

    Just curious. Have you thought of a name?
  34. exOT8Michael Member

    Re: May I Present To You....

    Those anons who posted that they suck cocks also have a new server which is proudly pictured below..
    As you see, we got a great deal on it.

    Re: May I Present To You....

    Hey Michael... try and take it slow on the memes man.
    Kinda looks like you could OD on memes real soon.
    Try to use them subtly and not too often, it looks kind of forced sometimes :p
    Also: NAG NAG NAG NAG
  36. anonym0us Member

    Re: May I Present To You....

    Disregard this double post, I suck cocks...
    ... Oh snap is dat sum irony?
  37. exOT8Michael Member

    Re: May I Present To You....

    LOL

    right.
  38. exOT8Michael Member

    Re: May I Present To You....

    So, WWP mods, did you come up with a name yet?
  39. Gede Member

    Re: May I Present To You....

    Currently, it's FoxyMoxy, but that's not set in stone. Shall we run a little poll? Any suggestions?
  40. exOT8Michael Member

    Re: May I Present To You....

    Poll is a good idea.
    FoxyMoxy might jinx the hardware by making it PTS to the slimiest lawyer in USA.


    Being a flippant rebel I would name it Caek
    'cos it is kinda squarish-rectangular and is delicious for all. It is also a lie, and so would remain undetectable by haxors.

    :-P
