So, you want to see whats behind the scenes at BetaArchive? Well here is a little for you for now...

This is what My Computer looks like at the time of this post.
Image

Here is a properties view of the image uploader folder. Its getting huge!
Image

Here is a properties view of the screenshots folder, its not quite as big as the image uploader but its got a lot of very informative images in it.
Image

Here is a view of the desktop, incase anybody was interested.
Image


ADD
Bandwidth usage over the last 11 months.

Anybody want to know something else about behind the scenes? Just ask! I'm open to any and all questions and I'd be happy to provide screenshots too.

Nope, everything longhorn related is already on the server. The lack of space is currently because mrpijey is uploading the repacked builds for the new layout. The space should go up and down over the next few weeks/months as we sort out and delete/upload old and new copies of the files.

uTorrent was used for seeding the Win7 releases briefly.

I don't see why there's too many quick launch icons, It's better then having them spread
all over the desktop...

All the icons on my desktop go into my quick launch folder...

& you thought that was too many...

Andy, have you thought about upgrading to Windows Server 2008? Just curious :D

One reason for the BA server not running Server 2008 would be that OVH doesn't offer Server 2008 with their dedi's, whereas they do offer Server 2003 if I recall correctly.

Why upgrade when what we have runs just fine? What benefit would it give? None, I'm guessing.

1 folder?

========

What are the tray icons between network and antivirus?
Also, the quicklaunch icon between Services and Scheduled Tasks (I guessed by the icons)?

The 1 folder is an archive folder of the old scripts.

A proxy program for when my internet plays up. Its offline unless I'm using it.

Tray Icons:
Network
Hamachi
Shoutcast
Netmeter
Shoutcast
CPU Usage
Avast
FileZilla
RDC

1. It's shoutcast twice? Albeit BA streaming is offline.
2. This is a strange icon for a CPU meter. I would keep task manager on and minimized.

For who don't know: I doubt this RDC is NetSupport.
Also I noticed a few game servers on the desktop...

Here's a list of these things:
Tray
Network
Hamachi
Shoutcast
Netmeter
Shoutcast
CPU usage
Antivirus
FileZilla
NetSupport

Quicklaunch
Desktop
Firefox
IE
My Computer
uTorrent
PRTG Traffic Grapher
Network (properties/status/enable)
Scheduled Tasks
Proxy
Services

The CPU program is for displaying on the site. It stores the info to a text file.

Shoutcast is running twice yes, one for me, which is not on, and another for "Zorro" a member of the forum.

All questions answered. Thanks.
This is why I see BA's IP on the "Status" page at Master DJ FM.

Wowza, even BA's bandwidth in April is about enough to cover my entire year of browsing. 8)
