Considering the quite weak frequentation of ethernia.net i guess that nobody really noticed the change, i just finished the migration to a new web host, ME, in fact rather than renting a shared webhost for a revolting amount, i am now renting a physical server in a collocation, it has a pretty good hardware and open the way to new interesting possibilities and challenges.
I finally received my new power supply which i am pretty satisfied with, but a few pictures talk better than a long discussion.
first it look nice in shiny black, also its built on an enormous fan that suck the air from the cpu and blow it outside, and it has a jillion of cables with a plugging system on the PSU and molex extractors so you don’r ruin your hard disk plugs with a stuck molex connector.
it has also a massive 750W power and massive 12V rails for future dual SLI configuration ^_^

What my clock do is give the hour according to the sun position, so when the sun is at the zenit, it mark noon, and when the moon is high it mark midnight. So it makes it more like a relative clock as the hours move twice as fast during the night, and of course if it is placed in a private sim with sun frozen, the clock will stay frozen at the sun hour.
