Server Upgrade.

The traffic on this and other services hosted on this server has gotten to be a bit more than the current hardware can handle. As a result I will be performing hardware upgrades on the server over the next few days. It will be going from an AMD x2 5000+ w/ 4GB DDR2 800 to an AMD x6 1055T w/ 8GB DDR3 1333. This is a significant yet costly improvement. I will also be completely rewriting the OS powering these services from scratch to further improve performance (I compile linux from scratch rather than using a distro). I am making this post simply to inform myHack users to expect periodic downtime over the next few days while I make the transition. myHack 1.2 is in the works and will be released soon after this upgrade is completed.

  1. Thanks It worked! i just skipped the graphics update. although i do get kernal panics if i use photoshop cs5 or view too many 12 mp photos. Watching 1080p seems ok, thats weird? 10.6.5 should be out when iOS 4.2 is out as 10.6.5 provides printing support from ipods and iphones but the betas are already out. Oh and keep up the good work! You’re awesome!

  2. While You Were Gone:-
    Security Update 2010-005
    Security Update 2010-006
    Snow Leopard Graphics Update (I have Intel x3100 graphics)
    Java for Mac OS X 10.6 Update 3
    Snow Leopard 10.6.5 Update
    Is it safe to install all those updates?

    • Annon:

      10.6.5 isn’t out *yet*

      with x3100 graphics I’d say you probably want to avoid the graphics update

      the rest should be fine

  3. Happy to know your are in work again.
    Believe me I understand the cost of your work here.
    Thanks for all your time.
