      New Servers

      Today we have ordered two new dedicated servers, One as an upgrade to our old game and radio server and the other as a dedicated web server,

      Server specs for both are...

      Intel Xeon Quad Core 2.40Ghz
      2.0GB DDR2-533 Memory
      160GB Western Digital SATA HD

      This should give our users a noticeable performance increase when using the affected sites and servers,
      Both will be based in Manchester so they are more central to the UK then our current London based ones,

      As such there will be some downtime for the radio and clan sites and game/radio servers over the coming week,

      We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

      Thank you

      Ged and Glenn

      Re: New Servers

      Looking forward to the performance increase alone, just not the shifting of 100 odd gb of data

      Aww! Amazing specs.

      Looking forward to the performance increase alone, just not the shifting of 100 odd gb of data
      But we sure do appreciate it

      Re: New Servers

      Our brand spanking new Servers are now on line, and work is taking place to transfer all the data from the old ones.

      SkyUser Radio now has a new IP address to listen through Media Player

      Code:
      http://77.240.11.49:8000/
      Our Servers have affectionately been called PLUTO and JUPITER

      Further updates asap

      A friend of mine has a colocated server with Melbourne in Manchester. I got another friend, who lives on the Wirral, to do a traceroute to it from his BT Broadband account. The route went down to London then back up to Manchester!

      But maybe Merseyside to Manchester is a special case.
