Thats no good idea I believe.
Better get some RAM for the server if you want to change something.
But to tell the truth:
DONT CHANGE ANYTHING IT WORKS PERFECT!!!!!

please?

PLEASE!

:D


ppl might please break down 190MB BOOK files to smaller pieces before uploading. Yes?
merci.

Heartily seconded!


If you want to run the server on different hardware, PLEASE build a separate machine, test it, and try migrating the server duties over to it. Don't mess with a working machine. Remember how many problems Eliteforum's had with "beefy" but unreliable new hardware?

FTP service over a 10 megabit line is one of the easiest tasks imaginable for a server. I am sure your existing hardware (with the possible exception of hard disks, which can never be too large) is already overqualified by a factor of 10 for this duty. Don't try to make it more powerful! This offers risks without benefits.

Can't downloads from the FTP site be resumed with an appropriate client? I would hope so. Splitting large files into multiple small files makes more clutter in file organization, and offers no benefits (that I can think of) beyond what you can already get by stopping and resuming downloads.

Most common freeware FTP clients support file resume if the server supports it.

You might want to checkout smartFTP.

Ofcourse I wasn't going to implement new server hardware using the plug-and-pray strategy... don't think I'll change anything at all right now since it seems to work OK as it is...

Downloads should be resumable, everywhere:
-----
AllowRetrieveRestart on
-----

nothing strange in the config.. does anyone else have problems with resuming downloads?

Oh! I actually wanted to express my gratitude by sending you this wonderful bottle which is perfect for ether-storage! Still filled with the original liquid though, which you may abuse or discard as you like to I thought?





Now I am told I have not to thank you! What to do? What a dilemma!

I've found the scans of two German books about crystal-growing on my hard disk, which were send to my some time ago. It's not a very popular hobby, but I think it would be a real shame, if I delete the scans without trying to share them to somebody who is interested in this stuff. Anyway, the quality is good enough, but I won't bother to make nice ebooks of them and remove all little failures like dots, shadows etc.. The books are "Die Welt der Kristalle" and "Kristallz├╝chtung als Hobby".

Also upped:
Kleemann And Engels - Pharmaceutical Substances (Syntheses, Patents, Applications, 4th Edition, 2000).pdf 60,3 MB
Jahn, Gerrit - Physikalische Chemie (Skript mit Lehrbuchniveau, 316 Seiten).pdf 2,5 MB
Bronstein - Taschenbuch der Mathematik.pdf 65,2 MB
Schweda, E. - Allgemeine und Anorganische Chemie (gutes Vorlesungsskript).pdf 9,9 MB
Wirsunn, Siegfried - Elektronik-Selbstbau Praktikum.pdf 3,6 MB

You seem like a real masochist, but upload as much as you want, I'm not complaining... :)

As of this writing, there is still 39.4 GiB free space available on that filesystem, and if it fills up I'll just put some of the stuff on my 2nd RAID5 and soft link to it, so space is plenty.

Casual inspection tells me you're uploading at less than 150 KiB/s, which is only slightly more than 1/3 of the link capacity, so no problem there. If you were 3 people uploading at the same time you might notice a small performance decrease... Not a likely scenario though, the largest number of concurrent users I see in everyday use is 3, but almost always only 1, and rarely 2.

I may have overestimated things when I limited the number of concurrent users to 30 -- it will NEVER happen.

I think my little 10Mbit line can eat whatever you serve without getting constipated :).

EDIT: And the server won't crash. Seriously. It has never crashed and never will :P. Uptime only limited by power outages. Current uptime is 149 days, 13:17 hours.

Could you kindly break down the MechDesk into pieces, at least into pieces which make it possible to burn them onto CD?

I do my downloads in I-cafes with faster connection than I have at home and they burn CDs, but they dont break me such big pieces down usually, not without a bribe at least.

MechDesk is what I always wanted

For files of that size, burning to a DVD, if you have a DVD burner, is necessary, if you want to store the complete MechDesk as a single file other than on a hard drive. This is unless the 939 Mb file can be compressed by ZIP or RAR to a size that will fit on a CD. Otherwise, you would have to use WinRAR to split it into two halves.

This is a stupid question, it makes my lack of computer skills evident.
What is the deal with those folders that I get an access denied? What is their purpose? What is in them?

axe, Do you use SCSI drives? If so I can send you a server. It's pretty old but would be perfect for FTP use.

It's a Dell PowerEdge 2200.

Only cost to you would be postage.
