I recently ordered a new server to replace this one. It is a pumped up machine that includes 1g. of RAM and dual 80GB HDs using RAID 1 all in a 1U form factor. With the arrival of the box, I plan on moving my hosting to a new situation where I should get better overall throughput. The net result is that my dinky DSL line will no longer be used for web hosting and will be freed up for other activities. Interestingly, my IIS box still lives on DSL connection and I have not decided what to do with it. With my growing love of LINUX, my poor win2k Advanced Server box has been relegated to nothing but a development server for ASP and Dot Net. I may actually just take it down and let it die. I would never imagined that after having configured the Win2k and then having LINUX as an after thought that LINUX box would end up dominating my activities. It really does. I am a complete convert and vastly prefer Linux. It is just so reliable. The downside is that it is complicated as hell to configure, but once you get it running, it is rock solid. I digress, anyway keep your eye out for the new server. I will post when it is operational and hopefully you will see a great improvement in throughput.
