After my former server burst into flames, I bought a new machine. I   installed VMware ESXi and placed some virtual servers on it. First thing   to get it up, was to replace the onboard LAN by an Intel LAN card. But,   after a few days, I got a purple screen of death. The more virtual   machines I installed the more PSOD I got. Ok, some weeks later and some   electronic parts exchanged, my server seems to run stable finally.

I switched from OpenSuse to ubuntu server. If you change your Linux   system, you’ll learn one important thing: Linux is not equal to Linux!   😉

Thus, I still have to perform some configuration tasks. But just now, I istalled wordpress to publish my first blog.

Lot of admin stuff for a software architect and developer 😀
