As a gamer, what hardware options are available to me in The Cloud?

I've recently become intrigued by the thought of applying the same cloud services that run the likes of twitter and facebook to my measly gaming needs. Think Amazon Web Services, but with GPUs. A company buys and maintains an array of high quality GPUs, then rents them out to anyone looking for some sweet graphical computing power. [more inside]

Hosted Minecraft PE solutions

A friend of mine is looking to use Minecraft PE with a group of 20 kids who will be playing on iPads. They're looking for an opinion on what the best way to host a server will be. They want a persistent server that will be available around the clock, they will not be playing with mods, and they'd like it to be as maintenance free as possible. What are good, reliable, and scam free hosting solutions for mobile Minecraft? [more inside]

Is it possible to prove I received an email at my old email address?

A while ago I had a different email address and I received a couple of emails from someone saying that they owed me money (which they did). But I deleted the email account a while back. (I know- stupid.) I eventually reinstated the account, but obviously all the old emails are gone and now this person is claiming I never lent them money. I thought ok- I'll just use the emails as evidence, but oops.... I forgot I no longer have those emails. :( [more inside]

How to chose an server for a small mac digital media lab?

I'm trying to figure out my options for setting up a small digital media lab for a new non-profit, but I have no idea how to set a minimum level of server specs! How much CPU and RAM do I really need? What determines this? The server will be used to administer local user accounts, and store files (including large media files). We may also end up using it to host our website and mail, if it makes sense (unlikely). All the main client computers will be macs, so I assume I should make life easier and just get an XServe. But I'm open to other suggestions. See below for some prices and models for various XServe's I'm trying to choose between. How low can I go? How much CPU/RAM do I need? Let me know if you need more information... [more inside]

Free Moore's law upgrade?

We've had 4 high-end dedicated servers with a hosting company for almost 2 years. Since then, technology has marched on and the servers they are offering new customers are much higher spec than ours - for the same price. Is it reasonable to expect them to upgrade our servers for free to bring them into line with their current offerings?

Large Site Network Infrastructure (Hardware) Examples?

Network admin / geek question: I'm in the process of building a small cluster of servers for my quickly growing wallpaper website, but I've never charted those waters before. I found a nice article on TorrentFreak about Mininova's server setup, and found it quite intriguing. My question is, are there any other big-ish sites like Mininova that are open about their hardware infrastructure? Googling around yielded few results. I'd be interested to see the setup for a site like Digg, MeFi, or Flickr. Thanks in advance. [more inside]
