    As opposed to what?

    A <I>real</I> server maybe?
    <!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->

    Looks like a real server to me. As long as it's not a VPS or a P4 or a Celeron, it'll host Retro fine. SSRG has been running relatively okay on a Celeron for a year or two, I don't think retro'll have issues on a dual core. If anything that matters more on a server than the CPU is the RAM and the hard drives, as long as they're standard 7200 RPM hard drives preferrably on SATA, which is cheaper to get now anyway, and as long as it can decently multithread (which any Core 2 Duo is fine at) you won't have any problems. Just give Apache a a few processes, enough RAM and it'll be stable for months on end.

    Wonderful news! It brings a tear to my eye over how much we've grown and matured as a community. Even when times are tough, there is always support!
