    Just ordered a brand new server, and the techs are currently moving everything over. There will be a small bit of downtime tomorrow or the day after (2-3 hours hopefully).

    For all you server geeks, here's the stats:

    Core 2 Duo 6600
    4GB RAM
    2x750 GB SATA
    Unmettered 100mbit Bandwidth

    And we have around 10 available IP addresses, so setting up dedicated game servers should be a cinch now.

    Just a heads up :).

    I was under the impression our space occupied by the forums was only in the double-digit gigabytes...*

    The last time I saw things, the database was roughly 2Gb (times 2 since there was a backup on the same server), plus a couple which were email servers.

    What uses for 1.5Tb one could have I have no clue.*

    One drive is probably going to be used for a parallel backup, along with the large drive sizes to allow for a much larger forum.

    He's seemingly expecting the forum to become much larger, and needing regular updates, and quickly.

    Just my newb speculation.

    I refuse to post again until all these roll backs are finished. I posted those two spotlight threads twice now and they've been rolled back.

    Alright. We're officially on the new server now. Should be a bit faster than before, and no more rollbacks (unless I screw something up). Enjoy!

    Wouldn't 2x 150GB WD Raptors have been better, perhaps there wasn't an option for them?

    Not much of a tech guy either but normal HDDs are 7,500 RPM while Raptors are 10,000 RPM ( hence the smaller maximum capacity of 150GB ) which means faster access to HDD.
