Hardware Failure

Wednesday, November 22, 2006
As some of you might have noticed, I suffered a big old hardware failure last weekend. One thing I like to do is run my own server; to that end, I had a VCR-sized computer co-located elsewhere with all my stuff on it. However, being a poor college student at this point, I can't afford things like "a real server" with a "warranty" or a "backup device". So when the motherboard on the aforementioned computer went up in smoke (literally) the computer was done, taking with it all my data.

Right now I'm running on temporary hardware (like a 6-year old Dell!) that is insufficient for my needs - except for the fact that it's free and it runs. Now I have to try to find another small-form-factor PC to do the job of the old one. Of course, I'd like it to be faster and have more memory so maybe I can do virtual machine stuff, too...
