Did an upgrade on the hardware this morning.

Old server:
Core 2 Duo 2.4ghz E6600
4G RAM

New server:
Quad Core Xeon Nehalem 2.4ghz E5530
8G RAM

There's no difference that I can feel when playing on the server, but now we have more room for growth.

MMM, I love the Nehalem/Core i7 chips. That and 8 GB of RAM will definitely help out later down the road. 4 physical cores on the dye, 8 virtual from Hyper Threading.

I kept saying "Spare no expense!" like the Jurassic Park guy while ordering it. :)

I turned off hyperthreading when troubleshooting some lag spikes, I read that it can hurt things when you do a lot of Mysql (which is a lot of the server load), so its off. 2 of the cores are just asleep most of the time right now anyway.

In other news, i just turned on memcached on the forums. I want zippy forums damn it.

Decent hardware upgrade, what OS setup are you guys running off anyway?
Unrelated note: why do I keep running into things I've made in the past? e.g. Joe's avatar. :lol:

Aw, when I saw 'New Server' I thought you meant you added annother server to the list. But oh-well, good news is good news. :)

I think a few months ago, someone linked the whole set (search 'Only manly men may enter') and everone had one of them for an avatar (a bit like when everyone had an adsfj avatars).
