We just signed up for a new server and its already been fitted today
At approx 1:30-2:15pm today we swapped over to our new server, this server will help us power our way forward.
We just signed up for another year ahead of the club renewals for the Quad core Intel server with an additional 6 gigabytes of DDR2 ram taking us to 8 gig
This is our third upgrade in one year, we could never do that without your financial support, this server is a bit of a milestone for us. I am well impressed.
Anyhow for the non technical minded... It should be much faster at peak times and more green/efficient.
For the technical minded, dribble away...
