I routinely get requests from management like "I need a list of the urls and the sizes of databases for our <product_name> sites!" This, I can tell you, is NOT something I want to figure out by hand (not with 300 production databases and a slew of training, demo, test, etc... databases as well). No, there is a better, more relaxed way...a way that includes plenty of time for me to check my e-mail, go get a cup of coffee, and chat with my co-workers...

Karmic on BBC Technology News

Posted 10-28-2009 at 12:06 PM by bhupendra

This is the link.

To back up, my company has a ton of aged Win2k SQL Server 2k machines that are about to fall apart. Some time ago, we got permission from the execs to spend around $35k on a server that would replace them all. So we purchase a new machine: 4 sockets (each socket stuffed with a 6-core Xeon), 64 GB of RAM, and 30+ 15k SAS disks. It's on par with the top...

Two years since the last Free Empires source release we finally are able to show the world some of the things we have been working on. Lamp Refugee is a project we started last May to help speed up the development of the Gambas Genie engine, the one that is going to be used for Free Empires.

Thanks for the tip, and I'd love to try your advice, but I'm very new to linux and, honestly, I have no idea what you just said. Can you help walk me through the process you're describing a bit more?
