So after all this work building a server, getting two identical hard drives, cutting a chunk out of a heatsink so that it wouldn't electocute my processor (again), blah blah blah, the powersupply I have for the server chassis isn't beefy enough to run both hard drives at once.
*cries*

So I have one of two options.

1: buy a beefier power supply for $75, and recoup most of that cost by selling my current one on e-bay. (they're going for like $50 right now, so I could probably get at least that much.)

2: run a web server with no file backups, or just file backups on the same drive as the files, thus losing everything in case of a drive failure.
bad idea.

So for $25 (net cost) I can finish off this damn computer which has been a pain in the arse, and have backups on a separate drive.
but damnit, I hate having to try to sell shit on e-bay. it's just irritating.

Were you touching a computer again, girl?

O:-)

That's got to be the tiniest damn power supply ever, though.

You could try selling it on craigslist or pricewatch classifieds. Pricewatch classifieds are FREE and so's Craig's.

except I'm going to colocate this machine, so it'd be backing up over the internet and eating up my bandwidth bills.
