Good thing that I procured a queue of work many hours ago, perhaps tough for others.

 2014-07-05, 18:58 #245 Prime95 P90 years forever!     Aug 2002 Yeehaw, FL 52×172 Posts The server magically healed itself while I slept. I rebuilt a few indexes, but some failed due to lack of disk space. Similarly a "DBCC CHECKDB" failed due to disk space. I've emailed Scott about buying a couple of cheap SCSI drives. I don't know if the machine has the space or power to support more drives. I'll let everyone know what he says. Anyway, we are back online for now. Free disk space is still a paltry 1.6GB.

How about we just run an Android Web Server complete with php and mysql...

This project can't take up much space. I'm a coordinator over at the Confluence Project we store over 100,000 digital photo's and the backup is only about 40gig...and I can store ALL of that on my mobile phone.

Why not open up a donations page so we can buy a "proper" server?

What is the current config of the machine? And instead of adding drives, what about a wholesale change out to big'uns?

Indeed.

I've said before; I'll say again. Consider leasing a modern co-located server.

It costs me USD $50 a month for the server to run GPU72. The prices have recently dropped to$40 a month.

YMMV.

Oh, yeah. I see what you mean. http://mersenne.org/primenet/ hasn't updated for over a day!

I like the sound of this. If money is an issue, I'm also totally for the idea of setting up a donation box. Hell, if it's really just $40 per month, 2014 Q4 is on me. 2014-07-06, 00:04 #253 Prime95 P90 years forever!

Money is not the issue. Converting from Windows to Linux, SQLServer to MySQL, transferring the database, volunteer time to get all that done is the issue.

Even if we leased, it would take time to do all the above work. In the meantime, we are stuck with the current server. If I can upgrade the disks for peanuts and buy time, it seems like a no-brainer.

Basically, we need both a short-term solution and a long-term solution.
