Extra network slot

Postby ez64 » Thu Feb 19, 2009 11:51 pm

Forgot to mention it when signing up for the lan and it looks like its going to be pretty full, any chance I can have a extra network slot on the switch for my file server.

It's got it own network cable thats pretty much permantly attached :D so sorting out a second cable at my seat shouldnt be needed.

Hi Ez64.
I dont see a problem with shoving ur servers with the rest, after all there are normally a few ports free down that end.

Ofc MikeTheGreek will be the one to final that.

there will be plenty of ports for your file server with the servers.

These are now next to the staff rather than on the stage.
Come see me when you get there.

To add to that I didnt pay in time for the advanced payment and I wont have the cash on hand to pay on the day,

can I send the full ticket price to a westlan paypal/bank account? (I'll cover the fees)

Sorry to be a pain :wink:

I used to have a Lian li v1000 and v2000 but they were too small, I bought a second hand mountain mods giant cube and did some el teriiiblaa shopwork on it and fitted 2 pc's and a shed load of HDD's.

But since im a Uni student and on my 2nd year disposable funds just flew away so Ive got a ton of fairly low sized HDD's but its got the ground work for just replacing them with 1.5tb disks.

currently on,

1tb Sata Barracuda
750gb Sata Barracuda
750gb Sata Barracuda
320gb Sata Maxtor
160gb Sata Barracuda
160gb IDE Barracuda
120gb Sata Barracuda
80gb Old maxtor on IDE but brilliant as its just an O/S drive.

and two 150gb raptor's in raid 0 for the other gaming machine.

I dont pay the power bills though :D

Looking back on it now, yes it was fun building it all but it would have been far easier just to have a gaming shuttle and a file server.

The build log is on the first page of this thread,
