Alright everyone, we've finished the move and our current server administrator is asking that you all please watch for errors when viewing the pages and let us know. Thanks for the support from all of ya'll. It's you that keeps sites like ours going...
Welcome to Funny link of the Day, a new section here where I'll try to maintain with funny links around the web, feel free to send us links in! Today I present you with I'm just a web server - Would you have ever thought you'd have a web server telling you its sob story? I guess even a web server needs a shoulder to cry on.
At Accelenation they take a quick look at two motherboards meant for server duty based on the Intel i860 chipset so head on over and check out MSI's 860D Pro and Iwill's DX400-SN i860 Server Boards.
Ladies and gentleman, if you can see this news post you are viewing TweakTown from our all new and improved web server hosted by the friendly folks at Elite Internet Communications!
We are running on a dedicated server (with an Intel Pentium 3 1GHz CPU, 512MB SDRAM and 2x Seagate 7200RPM 60GB drives running in a RAID 1 configuration) out of a Class 1 Data Center in Pittsburgh, PA featuring multiple DS3 and OC3 connections to ATT, Sprint, and UUNet backbones. We will never be turning to a free hosting provider again - I've learnt over the months that the quote, "You get what you pay for...", is exactly right.
The exciting fact is that our server sits in the exact same room as the likes of AnandTech, VIA Hardware, Tweak3D and AMDZone. We have came a long way since the conception of TweakTown some 24 months ago - I never would have saw us sharing a hosting room with the rest of these high profile tech sites.
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Jarrod "sKuLLsHoT" Mast and Clinton "SileNceR" Warburton for resurrecting the site and it's database after the crash we experienced a month ago on our old server. Without these guys, the site would most likely still be down, maybe for good - Thanks a million guys!
That's about all I have to say for now. I hope everyone finds the new server really fast just like we do, if you experience any problems feel free to contact any one of us, we'd more than happy to assist.
