My Tribute to Nyan Cat and Pokemon

I came across the Nyan Cat internet meme program on khanacademy and decided to make my own version as a tribute.

//Code:

var nyany=200;



var nyanx=0;

        line(x - 10, y, x - 8, y);

        line(x + 10, y, x + 8, y);

        line(x, y - 10, x, y - 8);

        line(x, y + 10, x, y + 8);

        break;

    case 2:

        point(x - 15, y);

        point(x + 15, y);

        point(x, y - 15);

        point(x, y + 15);

        point(x - 10, y - 10);

        point(x + 10, y + 10);

        point(x - 10, y + 10);

        point(x, y + 20);

Total Cost

2 Logitech mice - $24
Linksys switch - $15
Cat 6 cables - $22
Padded steel chair (needed to upgrade from steel) - $12
Table from a thrift store - $30
Replacement power supply (the other one was fried) - $50
Speakers - $12
Surge Protector - $18
 I rounded it up to the dollar.

Total: $183


If using this as an example for your own home server, you will possibly need to add the cost of two desktops, and hopefully won't need a extra power supply.

UPDATE: Just a note for the Linux server flavors, I'd highly recommend CentOS it seems to be much more geared towards servers than trying to force Ubuntu or Fedora to act like one.

Server Area





Where the magic happens.
























<--- Gateway running Ubuntu Server.










<--- Compaq running Fedora, kind of difficult to see with power supply cables.

Server End Game Plan

I am getting close to being finished setting up everything with the server and I have attempted to document most of the more interesting things that happened. My plan is to edit and touch the existing posts up a bit (e.g. I have replaced the Dell with a newer "hand-me-down"), as well as add a final one.

UPDATE: Not being a writer, or playing one on tv, putting all this together is taking longer than I thought it would. Not to worry though, it shall be completed!
It has also dawned on me that this server is completely ran by Linux. Having not spent much time with any Windows servers besides a class on 2003, I am unsure if that is more that Linux is overall better (perhaps, or maybe more so for developers, but I have no interest in the "religious" part of operating systems) or if it is just that free is so much more appealing than the pricey Windows server OS's when being on a low budget.
