Talked to rob tonight. Sounds like his grandmother is not doing to good. :(
I informally priced out servers today since the current one doesn't work for shit. I priced 2 out at 1048 with dell. One one be windows and the other either bsd or linux. 2.5 ghz celeron 1gb ram and a 2.8ghz xeon with 1gb ram. (windows on the slow box) That doesn't include os licensing of course. I also looked at getting one box just for kicks configured for high load. Thats like 900-1600 depending on vendor, cpu, etc. (dual xeon or single amd) In reality, my websites can run on a 400mhz chip but the real problem is the mail server and et. (one box) Thats the real load. I won't be doing anything for a year on this but i want to start figuring out what i want to do.
Robs got a nice box running s2z right now. I'm impressed.
