Doodse stilte op

July 26th, 2009 No comments

Helaas is het een tijdje stil geweest op, heb mijn testomgeving (HP ML350 G3) verkocht in de hoop 1:1 een nieuwe testomgeving te kunnen kopen is helaas wat moeilijker geworden als dat ik dacht.

Gelukkig heb ik sinds vandaag een nieuwe server gekocht (HP Proliant DL585-G1 Quad AMD Opteron 64 (Dual Core) – 2,4Ghz/8192MB/210GB/DVD/Rails/4U Server) en hoop deze vanaf dinsdag volledig klaar te hebben.

* Update volgt!

p.s Enneh.. collega bloggers?? Blogconccurentie ga ik dus weer met alle liefde aan!
