RC5 Cracker Update
Well plans fell a bit behind today.
You'll be glad to hear that I have the block server set up and serving blocks fine.
Its a 25MHz AMD 386, 6MB RAM, 4.3GB Seagate HDD (well its slow and I don't need it), 1MB Graphics, 10MBs network card and RedHat 5.2
Now we need to look for a name so make your suggestions here.
The site fell behind, but I have the basic layout done now and the pictures taken. I will be moving the 386 out to the room inwhich therack is in shortly.
Ya think that the 386 will handle block flush/fetch as needed?
How many computers will the server be hosting? And how fast are they?
Well its handling it fine for my 2 computers at the moment - and it quickly server the blocks out.
As of now, there are no motherboards set up in the rack. , but there should be soon - after I get the site up.
Why don't ya post a shopping list, and we can try and help get it together.
Is this like a Warpsnore type of thing your setting up?
You're really skimping on the block proxy server. I've got a 486 100 and a P90 siting here collecting dust. But it would cost too much to send one out to ya. As soon as I get a hub, i'll be using them.
To my understanding, it is.
BTW, I have a few parts I could donate.
Hey, thats nice. Will add a donations section to the page before I upload it. Just trimming down the pictures now (took them at max resolution by accident) and thinking what would make a nice page background.
Well my server won't be doing too much - just serving blocks, while the warp(s)core server has the clients booting off it.
I did a bit of research and came across a site on which you can put Linux on a floppy, with space for the RC5 client!
I had bought a 486 motherboard with a 66MHz IBM processor for $8, but in the suitcase something jammed agains't the processor heatsink, and when I opened the suitcase there was the heatsink after comming off, with the processor attached and I don't have a small enough solder iron to fix it.
I'll Post a link to the page when I upload it.
