I hate hardware

My main colocated server has started acting flakey. It can’t seem to keep up with the load.

My other server (the one you’re looking at) has started making very alarming noises that sound rather like fans getting off kilter.

I know I need to replace both of them, but don’t happen to have that kind of money laying about right now. I suppose I could move all my sites to some hosted solution somewhere, and pay a little less, but I really like the convenience of having a coloc’ed box, and having full administrative control of it.

Yes, I know, some of you are going to recommend some kind of VPS thingy, and I probably should do that. It’s just such an enormous hassle migrating from one server to another. I tend to wait for catastrophic failure to do that. Perhaps I’ll get that opportunity again.
