I need more power, Scotty!

The days of the turbo slug were numbered.

I often asked myself how long I would be able to endure running (and using) a slow server to serve up my web site. I’m a patient guy; sometimes too patient.

“Six months?”

“How about one year?”

OK, maybe closer to six months.

Well, that day has come. I chucked the Linksys NSLU2 out the window. It’s laying outside on the pavement, should you want to pick it up. After all the frustration it’s put me through, I think that would suit it well.

Don’t bother running outside. No, seriously. You won’t find much.

If you know me, you know I take good care of my toys. Rather, I auctioned the Linksys NSLU2 off to some adventurous soul on Ebay. May he (or she) have as much fun with it as I did (for whatever length of time that may be ;)).

My web site is now running off a state-of-the-art Pentium III 1 GHz box! 😉 Still energy-efficient, but faster! Time to pimp it out 😉
