Refactoring – Part 2

When I was at TigerDirect, buying the two 500GB drives, the guy behind me in line couldn’t believe that I’d need that much space.  However, I am vindicated: after copying all the old servers’ hard drives, I’ve just about filled one of the drives.  Granted, the second drive is nearly empty, but I’m going to need someplace to put new files.

I’m also going to have to make up for the lost sleep, I fear.

Now I have to sort through 500GB of files.  And it would be nice to get Fuppes back up and working so I can stream media to the XB360.  And I should get enough of my home directory restored on the new server that I can use it for voice chat.  Thank goodness that the mail, web and chat servers are offsite now.

(A quick note to those who may be considering installing Ubuntu on a Mac Mini:  It’s not quite as straightforward as installing Ubuntu on another computer.  I have it set up to automatically boot into Ubuntu, and it’s working great, but it took some work, some extra software, and plenty of failed boots before I got to this point.  And, of course, editing some configuration text files, which I understand can be a turn-off for some people.  I also can’t freely boot into Mac OS, lest I have to disable the ext3-formatted USB drives.  That’s okay by me, though – I don’t plan on booting into Mac OS. If you’re considering duplicating my project, we can discuss it in the comments!)
