Okay, so, after two weeks of moving this thing around the house, measuring, sampling power usage, and trying to sleep through the noise, I’ve determined that it’s just not feasible at the moment to keep this thing running as a server. Perhaps in the future I can find somewhere to put it where the noise won’t bother me and I’ll feel more confident about not burning down the house due to the shitty old wiring:
Even the “newer” parts of the electrical are pretty old:
But nobody can afford the $15,000 needed to rewire the house. So I’m just gonna hang onto my awesome new 65lb paperweight until I figure out a way to resolve the issues.
