Welcome to the New Haus Box!

Moments ago, The Haus has switched over to its new home. This box is a P3-550 running a heavily modified version of Red Hat Linux 7.3. We make full use of LAMP technologies (Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP). There's a few minor bugs that need to be ironed out. The next big step after that will be moving our articles over to a database from the current static page setup. Stay tuned!

Special thanks go to Crawl at EZ-Net for getting everything switched on their end of it. Thanks also go to Jeff and Dave at EZ-Net for letting our little corner of the Internet live on their server rack.

The Master comments: Now that this puppy is actually running live, I get to find all the stupid things I forgot to rebuild/reconfigure before having A.T. pick it up and haul it to EZ. Thankfully I think we're all set now.

NVIDIA 1.0-4496 Drivers Released

NVIDIA has released their 1.0-4496 binary drivers for Linux. I installed them via the slick nvidia-installer --update command that came with the previous drivers. I haven't had the chance to try them out with any games yet. The big fixes seem to be GeForce FX 5900 support and inital APM support.

NWN 1.31 Beta 2 Linux Patch

Bioware has released beta 2 of the Neverwinter Nights 1.31 patch for Linux. This is a beta, so use at your own risk. No support is provided. 1.30 is basically working fine for me, so I'm going to wait until 1.31 is no longer beta. Thanks Blue.

J.t.Qbe comments: After a rocky start with 1.30 yesterday, I finally have it working and had some fun with the Penultima modules last night. I'm definitely not touching any betas, though.

New Box

Well, The Haus will soon have a new home. No, we're not leaving the awesome folks at EZ-Net. That would be stupid. However, we are getting a new(er) box. The Master built it from an older system he had. I've got it at my place now, where I gave it some final TLC. I'm amazed that our current box has survived this long without blowing a hard drive. Hopefully within a day or two we will be on the new system. We'll see what kind of uptime we can get on that one.

The Master comments: Considering the HDs in the old box are something on the lines of 10 years old, I'm quite impressed with this thing's lifespan as well. I bet we won't ever see that kind of life expectancy out of an HD ever again. I think it might be a trick to beat the current system's uptime though. I don't think it's been down except for some data center migration outages since we installed it 3½ years ago.
