Welcome to Upgrade Island!
Do you need a free Sun Netra T1, or even Enterprise 4500 with spare boards for an upgrade?
Nothing in the universe is perfect. The ideal things are the ones that are most optimal. Optimization criteria, what matters. When I hear "No Compromise Design", I want to take a sledgehammer and test how impact-proof it is.

OK, I'll wait patiently. Apologies to anatech whom I emailed before I saw the announcement asking 'why?'.

Will I need to delete cookies or make any changes at my end?

Hi Wavebourne! We'd be only too happy to accept server grade hardware in the US if we could also find someone in the US to ensure it was running around the clock 24x7 and fix it in the middle of the night with little to no downtime. We do pay a kings ransom for our current setup, and in the future will probably look to move to full time professionally managed hosting in the future, rather than heading in the direction of self managed and self repaired co-location. If you have other ideas, please PM me (if we can send PM's .

Just curious, how much server power is needed?

http://www.apple.com/xserve/ this looks nice at least and 3kUSD is not too much?

I followed the strains of that Jimmy Buffet song & the smell of margarettas wafting in the breeze & arrived here. Let's hope the upgrade goes swimmingly well or we could find ourselves waisting away.

Wish you were here!
