list hardware status

Wednesday I put the new 160mb drive in the classiccmp server. I left the 4gb
OS drive in there, and put the 160gb in place of the 20gb data drive. I
brought the 20gb drive home and put it in a temporary system, then put that
temporary system down at our datacenter today. I will install all the newest
versions of OS and all the software we use on this drive in the 20gb temp
machine remotely. Once it's pretty much ready to go, I will take the 20gb
drive out of the temp machine and put it back in the classiccmp machine as
the new OS drive (to replace the 4gb drive). I'm guessing I'll be ready to
do that in a few weeks or so.

In addition, because SO many people were very generous with donations (and
one person was very VERY generous), I was able to upgrade the RAM in the
system to 1gb - as WELL as upgrade the cpu from 667mhz to 1.2ghz. Those two
hardware upgrades were put in place late this afternoon. I chipped in about
$25 bucks myself to cover the balance.

I will let the list know when I get ready to move the new OS drive into
place. There will definitely be a short downtime, followed by (likely) a few
days or so of things going squirrely as I find the things I missed :)
