New Server / Sorry for the downtime!

Over the holiday I decided to upgrade my home server which runs all my websites and development. I spent way too much money, but it was a much needed upgrade. I am hoping this helps with the basemap generation speed, but I still need to purchase more memory before I can really get into that project.

My upgrade included
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2950X
128GB ECC DDR4 Memory
AsRock Rack X399D8A-2T Motherboard
4x 16TB Seagate Harddrives

This is about $2600 worth of parts, which is also on top of the NVMe disks I bought recently... So if anyone wonders where the advertising money and donations go... this is a few years worth at least :lol:

Attached some pics if anyone wants to drool with me. also feel free to donate toward the 128GB memory increase :smilegrin: (its going to cost me another $600, uhg)

We sure are putting this new server to the test today. I am working a open map tiles export from postgres with 16 cores, plus on another vm it looks like jon has been importing a buch of VS1 files too.

Seems to be handling it all great so far, I'm really happy with it. I still need some more memory, but it doesn't even look possible to get it right now (backordered everywhere). I had to keep my old server running so I could have room for my main projects on this new server.

I'm finally putting this threadripper to good use. I am maxing it out with with OpenMapTIles generation now that I have optimized it a bit better
