It’s 2024 and it’s time for an upgrade! I recently got a new 16 in MacBook Pro. All thanks to (jessicamoy.com). It helps me run multiple VM’s. However, VM’s are still limited even with 12 Core Silicon CPU. Especially with the fact that much of my Linux stuff requires an Intel Chip and wont even run on Silicon Mac. Solution? Servers! Few of them!
To make this cost effective, I decided to go on Amazon and purchase a few Mini PC’s and all linked via KVM Switch so I can switch easily between them without messing with the peripherals. For the most part, I will be using SSH or RDC to remotely connect, but will need to be able to physically connect to the boxes just in case, hence the KVM Switch.
Server #1 (Lenny):
My Lenny server is my main CentOS / Asterisk based server that will host my Lenny and various other bots as well as my other Telecom (Phone) hackery. Example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CjZYkuvFj2s&t=7s
Server #2 (Windows Server):
The windows server will be used to host various bots for my Discord Server and API Supported services. Specifically for REST API’s and node.js.
Server #3 – Linux Sandbox Server
This will be my Linux server for development and testing. To keep it simple with less headaches, I will most likely use Ubuntu.
I may just install node.js on any of the linux machines and keep #2 open for a different platform. Maybe even scambaiting machine to mess with scammers, if I can figure out the easiest way to restore the machine without needing re-install everything manually. We shall see!
