Resurrecting GLaDOS After a little over five years, the small form factor desktop computer I built back in late 2012 refused to boot properly. For a couple of months, I resisted–I have a work-issue Macbook and iPad Pro, and I don’t play nearly as many computer games as I used to. It didn’t feel all that necessary for me to have a desktop on top of all of that. But, it turns out, it’s really quite nice to have a computer setup of your own.
For the past couple of years, I’ve kept a box in DelimiterVPS’s Atlanta data center named angercore.aeturnalus.com. For just $20 a month, I had a (very old) HP BL260C blade server with plenty of disk space and RAM to run many of my random experimental projects on. Unfortunately, angercore.aeturnalus.com has been offline for over three weeks, and it’s not looking like it will come back anytime soon.
