If you ever wondered what serversniff looks like:
Its located in the attic upstairs from the garage, where it's hot in the summer and cold in the winter. Its made of a cheaposystem with an Athlon 3Something with one Gig RAM and an old Perc2-sc-scsi-controller ripped from a Dell-server and a Proliant-HDD-array from ebay.
I suffered occasional blackouts when lightning stroke, doing damage to the database - so i ordered a brandnew UPS, the small thingy standing right, coming straight from china. We're prepared now.
