    SMP & Vmware

    Ive searched through the posts and read the FAQ/Guides already, so forgive me/correct me if I missed it... But, why is vmware-server being used to run multiple guest-os's on a multi-core box? Im not asking why virtualization is being used, I understand how/why... Im wondering why vmware, and...

    Upgrading my "server", a few questions

    Ive purchased a 1U 500Mhz celeron "server" off of ebay. I was mainly after the case, though for $32.00 I have a real pile of crap computer in a 1U rackmount case and Im quite happy with it, currently running Pfsense, and it barely even stresses the celeron past 10% cpu load with heavy...

    Looking for laptops, need advice

    Its been a long time since ive had a laptop, 3...4 years. I have my reasons for never getting another one, mainly because a desktop pc made more sense. But now things are different, its not that practical for me to drag around a CRT, Mid-atx case, keyboard, mouse, power strip etc everywhere I...

    hardware-chat.com?

    Is this site any way asociated with hardforum? Ive noticed they have sub-sections matching exactly to what hardforum has, and they also seem to have archived every semi-decent thread... I figured this would have caused problems with copyright issues, or does this just fall under fair use...

    Odd problems with apache

    I hope nobody minds me posting this here, but considering the people that post here... Its a waste of time to stick it anywhere else (and expect answers). I purchased a P3-933Mhz small-form-factor hewlett packard off ebay, because I needed something to host my site offline, and I was getting...

    slowly moving into the 'Nix word with some questions

    Ive been using linux for about 5 years off and on... first started out with Freesco which is about as easy and basic as it gets. In the past ive messed with Redhat 7, redhat 9, Fedora, Turbolinux, Debain... Why the switching? Freesco was too slow for my compaq proliants, redhat 7 worked fine...

    FX55?

    The FX55 was over $1,000.00 when I built my computer. I ended up going with a socket 939 90nm winchester-core 1.8Ghz (3000+) athlon 64. I have a 6600GT PCI-E, 1024MB of ram, one 80 gig hitachi, one 250 gig segate. But now, my cpu is worth about as much as a ham sandwich, and the FX33 is now...

    Low budget server

    For awhile ive been looking to buy a 1U server or two for use as an offline test-server/backup server. 1U, mainly because my studio apartment is rather crampt with my damn subwoofers, king size inflatable mattress, and couch. I know enough in linux to get by, from using freesco for a few...

    Help me revive my hard drive

    my CF-> IDE adapter came in the mail today. Plugged it in to the IDE cable (same one that my segate 250 gig is on), windows tried to boot. It got about halfway into fading from black to its loading screen, it froze and sat there with the hard drive lights on. I went and made a sandwhich, did a...

    Ipsense : High cpu load

    --Long winded preface-- Some of you may remember, I purchased a 24-port Cabletron switch off ebay months ago... Im quite happy with it, and seems to handle 8-10 people copying several gigabytes of files around without any issues. For $20.00, it was money well spent. Im picking up my 1U switch...

    Used scsi drives... worth the bother?

    This is a noob question, but please bear with me for this half a page of rambling: Ive picked up a Adaptec 2100S U160 adapter from the FS/T forum here, since my old scsi card called it quits after years of service in a compaq proliant 5500. I had bought an 18.2 gig 10k rpm scsi drive off...

    Choked down ISP, need to do my research.

    My ISP recently lifted all traffic shaping/QoS on their WiFi network, and as you can guess... it doesnt take long before 20 users choke down 3Mbs of half-duplex bandwidth. Typical things I see, are pings in games going absolutley nuts, sometimes into 3-5 second ping range. Pings from my pc to my...

    Confusion with routers

    New case, No ideas.

    I Have a 4U rackmount case that I picked up at a scrapyard for $10.00, most of the cost was due to the 5 or 6 scsi cdrom drives that were in it, since they charge by the pound. Interesting thing about this case, is the side panels on it. None of this flimsly slide-in screw in side panels that...
