you are such a geek

But on the other hand this weekend I'll spend a lot of my weekend installing Windows 2008 R2 server on a box and then putting VMware's Vsphere 4.0 on it then installing a bunch of linux OS flavors in the VM's. My Linux skills suck and I need to improve that part of my skill set.

Thanks guys.

I haven't had/build me a top of the line machine since 1998 when Pentium II MMX were the bad ass thing

My desktop had been a Pentium 4 2ghz with 1gb ram and onboard video that is now retiring to be my ampache / torrentflux server
so needless to say i was over due for an upgrade esp. since I am a huge nerd.


I added 3 more case fans with blue LEDs just for shits and giggles and i'm not sure what to do next.

@BRC

let me know if you have any linux questions id do my best to help ya out if you needed it.

Decided to go with a SUSE and Ubuntu builds to start with. Join a domain, set up a webserver, patching, mount some "stuff" etc on each.
