Recovery In Progress

I had been hosting my own domain for awhile not much out there really, more of a sand box for me to work in than anything else.  Somewhere around January 5th the computer I was using as server died.  It wouldn't boot or even POST.  I'm still not sure exactly what happened to it.  I attempted to replace the mother board and CPU but do to a serious lack of inclination and knowledge I never got it working and took all the pieces back to where I purchased them. 

I was feeling all bummed about it, worried I had lost a lot of info (source code, database info, etc.). 

And Just the other day I went out to Nebraska Furniture Mart and found a really good deal on a new Desktop PC.  I went ahead and picked it up and have been going through all the recovery issues that I can.  I'm going to try and document the recovery process and setup of this new server in case it happens again....
