Liveblogging the geeky project

God, I love Crucial and Royal Mail sometimes. Ordered the 4GB of Ram needed for my server yesterday; the postman delivered it this morning.

I know it’s not rocket science to whack a bit of Ram on a motherboard, but it’s always slightly scary to take the side off a computer and expose its guts. The old adage “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” springs to mind. However, the project, to get a server with Exchange up and running at home in order to do my own email hosting, couldn’t proceed without the Ram.

So right now I’m doing the geek equivalent of watching paint dry: installing an operating system. More later.
