Wow, I get 600 kbps downloading the test file here.  Grin An awesome amount when you compare it against less than 50bps (BITS per second!) that I get when downloading MomentoVPS' test file. Go VPS Squared!

Glad you like it, I got a report of 450KB/s from Sydney too. 


Here is a picture of the VPS host, some of you may be interested  Cheesy


That white envelope guides air away from the intake, a lot actually goes out the back like that.  It lowered the temps quite a bit for just having it there, looking into more solutions...That would be free...

That is a PSU brand I have not seen before, but I guess I won't worry as long as it works...

Yea i watched the voltages over time, and they seemed to be 100% stable, so that stopped my worries, not sure what would happen if i stuck a dedicated card on that board... (I wont but i thought about it before the VPS idea). 

That case and PSU i found near a dumpster at my old apartments, with working parts in it, but not those.. Not sure what happened, who would toss it oO, oh well, helped me  Grin

Being that the VPS Host's CPU is at its limit I'm not going to allow any more VPS's to be created.  I'll still offer current VPS's more RAM and HDD because those still have extra capacity by a long shot.  

Future plans include a new server and possibly a CPU upgrade for the current one.

Plan for New Server
a Dual Socket motherboard with an(one to start) 8 Core 2.6Ghz CPU.  
16GB of RAM (Ar first, more will be added as needed)
Also, the same drive as the current server, a 2TB HDD.
A new SSD for an alternative disk. (You can choose an HDD or a SSD as your drive for the VPS)

Plans will have CPU counts included.
1-4 CPU cores as the default plans.

Upgrades
Upgrades for RAM will be cheaper than current rates, The new server will have a higher capacity so I won't have to try and restrict it as much.
Upgrades for SSD and HDD will be different rates, for a plan, the SSD will be smaller than the HDD counterpart.
Upgrades for SSD to a HDD plan can be added on as a second 'drive'.
You'll be able to add more Cores to your VPS plan. (Up to 5 Total for now)

I'll be really flexible, but I am going to have to add one restriction that the current server doesn't have.

No LTC Mining or scripts/programs that take an excessive amount of CPU for a long period of time.  The mining is killing the people on the old server. Long period meaning a continuous of 5 or more hours.  I will notify you by PM or E-mail before the VPS is suspended. 3 violations will get the VPS canceled with no notice.
Sorry for any inconvenience this will cause, but it needs to be done to keep a fair share to everyone involved.

Please keep in mind that this server is at LEAST a few months out and is just a plan, prices, plans, upgrades, and pretty much anything can change before launch.  I need to feel comfortable in my personal finances to justify another, pretty expensive, server.

Donations?
The Cost of the server right now is roughly 220BTC (~900 USD)
To fund this, I will be using mostly my personal finance, but I am also looking for Long Term - 0 interest loans or flat out donations to get this server up, Loans will be paid back as soon as possible. (Okay, I know 0% loans will be unlikely, but I have to ask)  The more money gets loaned out or donated, the sooner the server will be up =)

To help speed along donations, any donors will get 10% off every month for life.
For Loans, I'll be also using 100% of mining earnings to them to pay them off as fast as possible.

Donations Closed, 10% locked for life for those who have donated


As some of you know, I am not doing this for much profit, so any out of pocket expense will take a long time for me to recover from it.

Please contact me here, PM, or IRC for Loan or donation questions.  I appreciate any help.
Donation Address: 1HZj7zoYYK7rExB1z4JBq8DjUk5XYR93YC

Here is the current PLAN (only a plan, no quotes)

Awesome, thank you loads Shocked

Take your time, this current server needs to be freed up a bit and/or the new one needs to get here before you could rent anyway

I'll note your 10% off.

Thank you again.  Smiley

Fixed now. It's possible it was an issue on my end, but I didn't change anything, and I can connect now...

Oh well, no matter.

EDIT: And the isup.me was useless in either case; no HTTPD is running. My bad. I couldn't ping it earlier, but it's fixed now.

Not sure what the issue would of been, i haven't needed to touch the computers, and my internet hasn't been down once.  Glad its fixed though  Grin

Just an update on the Server Plan.  I've found deals that have lowered the cost down to $784.72 vs $859.97 before cooling.  +$40 for a cooler, which i need to get, so 814.62 With the cooler.  I think this will be the best deal so far, Still need to find a PSU, estimating $50-$80.

About $75 has been gathered from Donations, Rentals, and Mining.  Our finances are looking up this month too, so everything going well.
 
Thought I'd let everyone know Cheesy.  The deals will likely change by the time the server is ordered, but they are out there.

Our Goal will be $900.  Enough to cover any possible non-deals there may be.

Goal: $900
Earned: $75
Current Out of Pocket Expense needed: $825
(this will be added to the front page)
