Over the past few weeks I’ve taken our venerable first server zim and given him a bit of an overhaul. A new motherboard, with 2GBs of RAM and a RAID SATA controller have given Zim a new lease on life as our test server. Now that the test server is no longer at my house, I can stop paying for the expensive net connection with the static IPs. Yay!
The staging server is currently called zim2.musicbrainz.org, but this should be fixed some time tomorrow.
I would like to give a big-fat thanks to Cliff Skolnick, Apache contributor and the leading force behing RightRound. Cliff is hosting our new staging server in his personal hosting setup as a favor to MusicBrainz. Thanks Cliff and the team at RightRound — we appreciate your support!
