Was this a G3, or G3 server, as Apple just announced them two weeks ago. It is not the same beast, if you want to know. That's all I can say. you can't make a server out of a mcahine without Ultra Wide drives, etc, which is not optimized for the job.
Apple's servers are faster than any Dell or Compaq equivalent(one COU) server, so I believ the people who ran this thing botched it for all of the above reasons. Perjaps you should let them know.
Zanny: We have our entire High School using the Web, a Math Lab, & an English lab as well as all of the personnel on a network server. We have had the Server crash with all the grades, and many assignmnents & reports have been lost other than crashes. We have invested A LOT in upgrading to support the server, but apparently it can not support the volume or provide the speed.
Less than 2% marketshare, indeed! What a bozo! Start with a premise and then "prove" it to anyone with the patience to wade through your windstorm. Don't let the facts get in the way of your "proof", either. And then top it off with an imperial byline like "I, Cringely". What a recipe! Has this guy used a Mac, or even seen one? Sheesh squared!
