It comes in on fiber, hits a CPE and the handoff is a 1000Base-SX port, that feeds the routers. Aright so servers are good to run anything, When i get back to the data center this week i will get a server ready, should i go the linux route or windows, any suggestions? After i get it setup, we can figure out the administration part of it.

The server I am gonna use it a HP DL360, 80 GB of HDD Space(RAID-Mirroring), 4 GB of RAM, and Dual 3.06 Ghz Xeons, Has 1 1000Base-SX optical connection back to the switch. Internet that this server is on, is a business class Comcast connection, so speed should be fine, but if it is an issue, I will switch it over to the level3 connection. So as far as games, what will this support? And here is a webcam of the place, dont mine the mess, getting ready to do some landscaping outside the building. CSGO, is counter strike global offense, is that a steam game? or WON type game.

Hello, Its been a while, but I will get right to it. I have a small datacenter here in New Hampshire, and I got several servers sitting around doing a bunch of nothing. If I was to setup a dedicated game server for everyone here at TWHL, what would you wanna have? Source? Goldsource? etc etc. And would anyone be willing to manage it? I know howto setup a dedicated server, but besides that i do not know how to do much more with it, like adding game status pages and stuff like that. Im thinking I would setup a server with a clean install of linux or windows 2003 server, and just give some people remote access to it, who are willing to manage it. What do you guys think?

in Coffee Brewing Post #302918
I drink about 4 cups of coffee a day, morning, noon, then late afternoon. Morning coffee is black as hell, with one spoon of sugar. Noon time coffee is normally black as well, sometimes a little half and half. Then late afternoon coffee, has one sugar and a bit of half and half. I prefer my black coffee to be so black it makes your eyes bleed, so a Dark Roast or a Rich Colombian Roast. Tea with honey is always good to.

in Website not working right... Post #209777
Ok, thanks for all the input, I am looking into no-ip right now, it looks good....My resolution is 1024x1280, it looks fine on my computer. But on say 800x600 it gets messed up, but not on all computer that will happen. So i guess i will just deal with it for now, And the freewebs host will be going soon, I just got Cable internet, so i am going to get my old poweredge server running and i will host it myself.
