The Green Dragon
got some runtime today. It's been one of the first days cool enough to boot this dude. We did a lot of playing around on the experimental Linux box. Learned how to use NFS so the Green
and White Dragon
could talk; got Samba working so the box talked to most of the network; and started to build Apache. The original idea was to have the Green Dragon
take the job of a backup server. We've had some things we want to experiment with on the White Dragon
, and the non-Linux machines don't do a great job of being a backup server-- no dynamic content. Unfortunately, we realized a little latter the Green Dragon
has a 1.5 gig hard drive, 200 megs of which were free. Presently, DrQue.net's public side is sitting at a cool 1.5 gigs. The Green Dragon
just isn't going to work as a backup box.
Parted out is a donation from our good friend Pluvius
-- an AMD 400MHz motherboard with RAM. He have a power supply and hard drive to go with him, but lack a case. We're thinking this may become an other Dragon in the near future, and become the officinal backup box.
