Ok so I got my hands on an iPhone. But there are a few problems I am having. Mostly the fact that the phones firmware and and modem firmware wont allow me to unlock it. I am working on it still and as soon as i get it unlocked and on t-mobile the fun hacking will begin. Looks like its gonna be a long night for me.

Oh ya and I wrote this post from the phone 😉

Win a xbox 360!

Monday, May 11th, 2009

Ok guys so heres the deal. I am getting an xbox that will be modded and given away. The mods that will be done to it will include a custom paint job. Some different led mods and a few other tricks possibly ;).

However as we are all aware an Xbox costs money. Thus leaving it to the sponsor site to pay for it. That means that the terms and conditions are all on MagniRack and in order to win you have to be a customer. However it does not matter if you spend $5 or $500 you are still entered in the contest!

So if you are looking for a gameserver or even a teamspeak server and want a chance to win a tricked out xbox 360 I suggest checking it out.

Oh ya almost forgot…There will also be a second and 3rd prize in the form of cash in your account that can be used for services with magnirack so the chances are good that you will get something.

xbox360arcadeAn XboX 360 for free? I know your gonna say yes. But what if I was to mod it myself? Adding some custom paint along with LED’s and a few other fun things possibly. Still yes?

Comment below and let me know if you would be interested in winning something like this and it might just happen that I mod a 360 and give it away to someone 😉

Or…If you would rather have a modded Nintendo Wii post that as a response below and it might happen instead or as well 😉

Don’t buy .tv domain names says godaddy.

Friday, May 1st, 2009

hkcvyx51mmxabh0oij8gsddgo1_500Apparently Tuvalu the country that owns all the .tv domains [so to speak] is sinking and thus it may be a good idea not to buy any domains ending in .tv because of an ICANN rule which states that domain names from any defunct country must be phased out.

However we can never tell what will happen.

Who thinks we should get a .tms domain?

New Dev Servers!

Monday, April 27th, 2009

Ok so a friend of mine posted a thread on FWS about selling some of his old servers that he had colocated in the US [he is from the UK]. The servers although not that powerful were super cheap and I could not resist getting them. Now you may be asking yourself one of 2 things.

  1. What is the use of 2 more computers that you have
  2. Why the fuck do I care.

To answer #1 these new servers can be used to demonistrate many different tips tricks and mods that can be done. Such as home VPN servers (if you don’t know what is a VPN by now, Google it bro), Media servers, Home Web Servers, Proxy Servers, Clustered computing,…ect..ect..ect..ect.

To answer #2 it will allow me to get mods done on a topic that everyone can do. I mean come on we all have that old closet pc that does nothing right?

The new servers specs are as follows.

  • Dual AMD 2800+
    2GB of Ram
    250GB HDD
  • Buzz – 301
    Dual AMD 2000
    3GB of Ram
    2x 80GB HDD

*Both are rackmount servers not normal mid tower pc’s*

Not the best but about average for your home closet pc. Now I am going to be able to show different things on a whole range of different hardware. Because on top of those 2 I also have some other hardware that I will be able to use.

  • P4 2.4 Ghz
    1gb ram
    120gb harddrive
    *Tower*
  • P4 3.2Ghz HT
    NEEDS RAM
    250gb HardDrive
    *Tower*
  • P3 650Mhz
    512MB Ram
    20gb HardDrive
    *RackMount*
  • Dual P3 800Mhz
    1GB Ram
    2x 9.8GB SCSI Drive
    *RackMount*

So I have hardware in a range of ram and processor configurations not to mention the ability to run anything in a VM on this wonderful Phenom I have :).

As of right now the servers are still in a holding position. They should get shipped out sometime today from the datacenter and if they do get shipped today on time then they will arrive to me on the 29th. Then I get the fun task of getting all of the computers on the same network playing nice and not sounding like a jet is sitting in my office area. Pictures soon!
