    So our amazing game server host has redone their server packages! Trust me good deal for us! The server cost will go down $2.50 each month but also gain a lot of performance. With the increase its possible to add 1 or 2 more servers if we wish.

    Here are the stats of what more we will receive. Primary for @101gamer101 as we know he will geek out :D
    • Changed hard drive size from 400 to 600 GB RAID-protected storage
    • Changed monthly bandwidth transfer amount from 16000 to 36000 GB
    • Changed number of HT CPU cores from 4 to 6 (Intel Sandy Bridge or better)
    • Changed memory amount from 4096 to 6144 MB
    Note this will be happening today / shortly. Downtime will range from 20mins to ~1hr. I'll report back when its complete.

    Upgrade Complete

    ffs We're not even running an SSD or two. Call them up and see who's knob I need to slob like corn on the cob to upgrade us to NVME in raid 10.

    In other news, this is great! Still not sure what kinda processor we're running on but I'm sure those two extra cores will run at a similar speed. Few extra megahertz wouldn't hurt either haha (can tgey overclock for us if we pay for an AIO?). And 2 extra gigs of RAM is HUGE!!! Not in a literal sense but it'll help run the server w/o lag a helluva lot better. Fairly sure the monthly limit won't matter as afaik we haven't hit that threshold yet but it's a good start for expansion...

    You know what? Once I get back from this little unscheduled 'sabbatical' I'm taking right now, I'll toss out a cool suggestion me and the other 'badmins' whoops i mean half gods have talked about for a few days now...
