...for as long as it takes to upgrade and test:

  • Memory
  • GPU
  • Network card(s)
  • BIOS

I'm taking time off work to head in to the datacentre and sort a few things out.

Thanks for the warning, I already see myself going for the rare TAM experience. ???

Appreciate your effort there, thanks for keeping things running. (And making sure you can cure your thaw addiction) :))

New memory, GPU, NIC and BIOS installed.

It took a lot longer than expected to get everything configured and working.

Thanks to Holyspam supporting this. Great teamwork.

The DC is **NOISY** and cold.

A half day of annual leave taken.

Holyspam did all the brainwork. I just got the hardware in to the DC, did the BIOS updates and then stood around and pugged in the settings he wanted.

I didn't enjoy the moment Holyspam started converting the M.2 drive from legacy to UIFI and then sent me a message "well shit" and didn't reply to my "What?" for 2 minutes....
