There is some pretty interesting stuff in this world. Run of the mill doodads from the past and items that were once upon a time top of the line technology. The trick is finding them. You would be surprised at what you can find at Estate Sale Auctions.
While most of the items are pretty ordinary, tools, paintings, future and stuff like that, Estate Sale Auctions are one of the best places to find interesting, one of kind and rare items. We thought you might like to see some of the more interesting items that some of our Xpert Auction Software clients have recently sold on their online auctions. Today we are going to show you five antique items found in Sacramento online auctions.
1. El Chico Cuban Rum
These two hard to find bottles of 90 proof Cuban Rum were found near Knights Landing.
This rare Cuban Rum produced by Ramon del Collado of Havana was made sometime after the prohibition, but before the embargo placed on Cuba in the early 60’s.
The bottles of El Chico were found with some age and wear, as well as partial corks, but still intact. That’s right this 90 proof hard to find Cuban Rum is complete and ready to drink
2. Antique Keystone 8mm Movie Projector
Break out the old movies!
Next, we have an Antique Keystone 8mm Movie Projector model r-8. It was also found near Knights landing. This generation of old time movie project saw its hay day in the early 40’s.
It was found functional, but with repairs to be made. A little work and it is ready to be used to see some good old black and whites.
So part of my job as the engineer is monitoring how much CPU usage a website is creating. Depending on how much load is on the server or how many users are using the website I can scale on the website server to allow for more processing power.
We start off with 2 CPU cores to allow for several hundred simultaneous users. Depending on how many people come to the website we will add more CPU cores 2 at a time. We can go up to 20 CPU cores total at this time.
The client does not have to worry about anything and this scaling of the server is taken care of automatically by myself or by the software itself.
This benefits the clients because they are allowed to have as many visitors as they would like. The client does not need to know how to scale the server or worry about upgrading the software.
When I change the scaling of the server there is no visible change on the website. However I am able to monitor the CPU usage and make sure that it has gone down because it is distributing the load across all of the CPU cores. There is no need for the client to do anything at all.
Part of the job is also a monitoring error reports. Whenever an error occurs on the website I am notified and I can diagnose the problem. In most cases I can fix the problem without the client for the users realizing that anything is wrong. This will help relieve stress from worrying about the software working correctly. As time goes on there's always going to be updates and changes in the technology in the code. We are going to keep up with the technology and keep moving forward to make sure everything runs smoothly so that you can run your business.
We backup the database every day. We back up every single action image daily. If there is a problem and we need to restore the database this will be handled by us. If a client has accidentally deleted an auction we can restore it for an hourly labor fee which will appear on your monthly invoice.
