My server’s restoration note

This post is very old, though its information is not useless at all. Please see here.

   As my server machine had finally broken on October 5th, I was using a notebook as a temporally server for a while. To manage to repair the former server machine I struggled for one month, but when breaking again just after it came to work, I gave up at last. So I bought a secondhand machine for a server.
Thus, this is its restoration note. (01/Nov/2009)
