Well, the ilab server now sports a mighty 128Mb RAM stick. Quite an upgrade from the mere 48Mb before. Thanks to my man nappbread for the donation! Hopefully this will help performance...but it's really too early to tell. Unfortunately, the replacement CDROM drives I tried all flaked out, so I'm still stuck with my crappy Creative drive which doesn't like to eject or mount nicely...although I think I've finally figured out the way to make it work.
I'm sure you didn't notice the downtime tonight during the upgrade.
