2018-10-04: Search server active for recent posts, rebuilding for older posts. RebeccaBlackTech restored after host's storage had a 2nd SAN hiccup on 9/24. No damage, but we need to import posts from the a contingency scraper. Many thanks to our new tetrarchy of sysadmins who worked to fix this complex service after the loss of the original admin. More info later. Donations would still help in case of image storage failure and we still need a new scraper.
The server is stable, but the scraper is at its final limits due to crippling resource use and cloudflare limits, so /gif/ and /wsg/ images are paused. Let's solve this: help build a new scraper. More details here.

Upgrading my PC?

No.68598978 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
I was considering upgrading my PC. The first PC I ever built. I did a few minor upgrades to it but I was thinking about doing a major one soon. Motherboard and processor. I think my current processor is holding me back tremendously. What do you guys think?

Any idea what motherboard I should even get? Hell, maybe I don't even need a new mother board? I don't know. What processor should I even aim for? I am not familiar with the most effective hardware I should try and get. Here is a screen of what I have right now.

Am I even in that rough of a shape?

ALso, why does captcha shit down my neck and say it thinks suspicious traffic is coming off my network and won't let me fill them out? Then other times I can post fine? God dammit.
