So. I bought a server. Wait: is too much. Let me sum up.
Son got daughter and me playing Minecraft.
Son wanted a server of his own to play on.
Dad: “No problem.”
Server 1 was a virtual machine on my desktop.
Server 2 was an old Dell tower
Server 3 is a Dell Poweredge 2900 server class machine.
In the immediate future, look forward to a series on transitioning my sites and services from the Raspberry Pi to the Dell.
