I have an old PowerEdge 2200 server and wanted to add more RAM as it currently only has 64MB. But it uses 168 pin buffered ECC EDO DIMMS, which are more expensive than SDRAM. Crucial has at times wanted as much as $90 for 128MB, which I wasn't prepared to pay.
Enter Pricewatch. For those who don't know, pricewatch is your friend.
Once it's in, perhaps I can run multiple instances of mod_perl, along w/ Mysql, & PostgreSQL without swapping. It kind of sucks when you run into swap even when the bare minimum httpd processes (1 parent, 1 start, & 1 spare) are running. I tried having 0 spares, but apache complained & said it was setting it to 1 because surely that's what I meant. No it wasn't...
One last thing. I setup Bricolage as mentioned on the front page and it's pretty cool. From my cursory glance it's quite comprehensive. And when I wanted to run it on a high port and/or virtual host, the developers saw the utility of my request & the feature is now in CVS. Isn't open source great!
