Just for the record.
I’ve probably missed flagging some of these.
I think it’s happened. For the first time ever (since I’ve had PC-level computers at work), I actually have a more powerful computer at work than at home.
The new one is pretty much just this year’s model; very little difference visible from the outside.
But it has 3 times the memory and twice the processors. And 15000 RPM enterprise SAS drives, in RAID0 for high performance.
They said “sometime in the coming week”. Then this morning I got notice that the move had happened.
I haven’t checked much, but the top-level blog still works, at least. Since it’s a different system name and probably a different disk name, and a much updated Linux distribution (they say 64-bit, and the previous server was running 32-bit), there is certainly room for moments of unusual interest.
I’ll check more tonight, and should have time to work on actual problems then (even if I find a problem today, I can’t take time to fix it during work).
If you find something suddenly not working, please leave a comment here, or email me.
For the record.
