Many of you have asked what hardware we are looking at for the new server. Here is a list of the hardware that I am currently considering. If you have any suggestions on other hardware let me know.

Just a suggestion Jen, double the RAM, at the prices they are today you cant go wrong. And those drives may want to consider either 34's or 36gb's for expandability. At the prices the extra 512 mb of ram and twice the disk you'd only be looking at 2-3k more at one time. This also covers you in case another chip shortage comes up like it did last year.

UPDATE: For those waiting for fnfal.com or hk91.com email addresses, be patient, my main system went down again today and I can't access the email request list. I should have it up tonight or tomorrow and will get the email accounts set up asap.

Thank You,

Jen

Sent my $20 via Paypal. Sent in e-amil request. Good luck with fund raising. I may be new, but I know a good investment when I see one.
