My new web server is now online. The old server was just barely keeping up as I am now pulling 2 million hits a day. The new box is kick ass! Its a Dual Xeon system with 4 gigs of ram – and a pair of 250 gig Serial ATA Hard Drives – Western Digital 7200rpm with 8mb buffer. 500 watt power supply is driving this baby! It has 2 ethernet ports. One is a gigabit port. Using a Supermocro motherboard.

I’m running Radhat Linux Fedora on it and a custom built Linux 2.6 Kernel. Large buffers allocated to MySQL and plenty of Apache servers waiting for requests that sometime run 40 per second during the peak times.

This new server is especially designed to GET RID OF BUSH! Its part of my “No Anti-Bush site left behind” policy. If you know of any anti-bush sites that are having trouble paying their hosting costs, send them my way and I’ll make sure they stay online. More pics of this server can be found at This Location.

My old server is for sale if anyone wants it. Its in real good shape. Its a 2U box with a 2.4 ghz Pentium 4, 1gb ram, and a pair of Western Digital 160gb drives. Its got plenty of horsepower if you’re running under a million hits a day. $1200 takes it. marc@perkel.com
