UPGRADE to the system!
My buddy Doug Daulton pointed me toward a sweet deal on a motherboard/processor combo, so I took the opportunity to upgrade the server to a 2.0Ghz Athlon processor, which more than tripled the speed (BogoMIPS, for what they’re worth, went from 1064.96 under the old processor to 3329.22 under the new) of the server. BogoMIPS are defined as "the number of million times per second a processor can do absolutely nothing".
Please let me know if you find anything strange on the site.
Enjoy the speed!
