    Ryme City - N4A Chat Thread - May 2019

    In case any of you don't read the site feedback thread... Looking to migrate and upgrade Ninfora soon, with the primary caveat being that custom name colours are currently broken, requiring some development to fix up and improve.

    https://beta.ninfora.com/forums/ I have a beta version of the site running from a server out of home. This uses an old snapshot of the site and should be looked at as ephemeral; anything done on that beta site will inevitably be wiped. Expect occasional sporadic downtime too. I've got the beta site running in Docker, behind Cloudflare, with several packages and the forum software updated. The main issue right now is that the plugin that supports custom name colours unfortunately no longer functions. I could do some dev here to get it sorted, but it's not currently one of my higher priorities. However, there are other updates that do need to go live. I do hope that the lack of username colours for an indeterminate amount of time wouldn't be an issue. I'd like to fix that, but I have many other tasks on my plate at the moment. Ultimately I would like to develop is a solution that would allow anyone to choose their own name colour in their profile without having to make a request to an admin. In the meantime, if you would like to play around on the beta site momentarily, have at it! Let me know if you find any issues, and tell me how it's performing since it's hosted from New Zealand. The latency will be worse than US-hosted for virtually all of you, though ideally I'll have been able to mostly mitigate that by throwing a silly amount of power at it.

    Software developer. Mainly a lot of web dev and infrastructure stuff. Quite a bit of Docker, and quickly moving into some Kubernetes. I've already got the site running in Docker and hosted from these servers. Plenty of upgrades in place, which I like. Having to figure out how to handle the custom name colours though. Those have unfortunately stopped working. Aside from that, things are looking very good!

    Koholint Island - N4A Chat Thread - April 2019

    So uh, I'm coming into possession of more servers. Many, many more servers. As in, I'll have eight R720s, three R420s, and an R410 or two. I could resell them for a significant profit, but I'm looking to instead resell excess at cost to mates that could use them. Crazy to think that the R720s combined have 128 cores, 256 threads, and 512 GB RAM. And I'll be keeping three or four of them for personal use. This is quickly turning into an expensive but oh-so-exciting hobby! And yes, in the very near future I'm still planning on having Ninfora migrated to this outlandishly overspecced hardware.

    Having a nice bus ride up to Hamilton for the Easter weekend. Felt like I was trapped in Windows XP for a while!

    I'm going to start setting up the server today. Going to do plenty of exciting things, like taking the software that Ninfora runs on and putting it in Docker! Many exciting projects planned on all of this, especially if I get to create a cluster in the future. I'll run a temporary, beta version of Ninfora in the future that will be on this hardware and will contain some additional updates. Again, more info to come in the future!

    Server. PowerEdge R720. 16 cores, 32 threads, 64 GB RAM. Possibility that I may be getting several more. If all pans out, I could be looking at 64 cores, 128 threads, and 256 GB RAM. Either way, planning to migrate Ninfora in the not-so-distant future! More news to come in the coming couple of weeks.

    Updated! Have some other updates that I'm quite desperately wanting to do as well, but still waiting on some stuff that's unfortunately out of my control.
  10. Fuck. My heart goes out to those impacted by the terrorist acts down in Christchurch.

    New Zealand is Best Zealand. 10 Gbps trialing is in the pipeline as well. I certainly do not miss dealing with Charter. It's appalling how such companies can have such ridiculous conflicts of interests between providing TV and internet service simultaneously. We almost had a vehemently anti-consumer Vodafone and Sky TV merger here, but thankfully it was shot down!

    Yes, actually. There's no traffic shaping or anything. Costs us about $65 USD per month for this connection.

    I'll soon enough be getting my hands on a Dell PowerEdge R720 that will come equipped with 16 cores, 32 threads, and 64 GB RAM. I would very much like to move Ninfora to this hardware and host in-home off of my gigabit fibre connection. Further details to come within the next month or two. I plan to set up a "beta" site first and foremost to ensure that performance remains solid with the latency to New Zealand. Ideally the absurdly overspecced hardware and CDN configuration will be enough to mitigate the additional latency.

    Your Latest Purchase Thread

    Maybe not technically a "purchase" per se, but I redeemed a little under half of my Fly Buys (points that I primarily get from credit card) and got some new wireless noise-canceling headphones on the recommendation of numerous friends. They blow my expectations straight out of the water!
