Today with the help of Fen, we moved the server onto a new machine. The new server has close to 8x the ram, and roughly twice the processing power than the former. Both fen and myself have seen some increase in overall appearance/ performance in high gfx situations, so I am hoping players will notice some differences in the gameplay.

*drools* WHATS THE SPECS MAN THE SPECS!!!????
The "New" server, is an older but decent laptop. It was originally made for windows 7, but I don't like 7, so i forced XP upon it. Much to its disapproval, but i got drivers for everything The link below is to what best resembles this "NV" 53. It doesn't enjoy full screen applications, or actually PLAYING freelancer due to some odd overheating issue. I took it apart and scrapped some heat paste from another old CPU, smushed it on and jammed it back together. That fixed its "overall run time" overheating, so now it can remain on indefinitely. But it doesn't like working the screen too hard or it restarts itself. Soon ill be getting a tube of my very own heat paste tho. So im hoping that will keep it cooler than old p4 paste from the closet computer. I do have other options tho if this fails, so don't worry about the shabby condition of things. I have a good hammer and another couple laptops if this thing dies on us

hmmmm...... thermal paste...... oddly enough..... if you "lap" the processor using 800 grit sand paper on a glass table (very clean) till it has an almost mirror finish (that is if it has a metal heat shield) and you can use silicone paste [ like the stuff they use to lubricate caliper brake pins ] ( A TINY LITTLE DOT OF IT!!!.... as big as the O on your keyboard).... if its a laptop overheating, then your heat pipe fans may be failing, try running the server with the lappy closed and the ram cover removed and if it has a floppy port/drive, remove it.
im pretty sure most refrigerators door seals will allow for a power chord and a net cable to still seal, throw that badboy in the fridge .... NOT in the freezer.... it will collect humidity and short out pretty quick.... don't ask... OH better yet, look at garage sales or what have you for one of them wine fridges boom, problem solved
