 Upgrade + downtime.
UKScifi Logo We had some downtime for the last 3 days.

The downtime was due to problems with an old HDD and some hardware issues;

I run this server on a modded HP laptop with the LCD screen removed as I can just plug in a normal Monitor and switch this off totally, I also stripped other parts that are not needed like the flash card reader from the side of the case, the sound module and PCMCIA card slot.

The changes I made to the hardware was the laptop case for the new fan and upgraded the battery pack, this was to get the box running at under 70watts, and save my power bills.

I replaced the HDD and I decided to upgrade the OS to Ubuntu Server 8.10 thats good upto 2017.

We have a mail server running now, FTPd is back and a nice desktop installed, because I am getting lazy in my old age.

I also repaired the old UK Scifi database, from 1996-2005 but I have no idea at this time on how to merge them with the existing DBs.

More on that in time.
