Actually only 20GB ram, I have 2 2GB sticks and 2 8GB sticks of ddr3
because if I have the ram why not use it. :)

If we want to get more ram, we should get ddr4 ram instead since I
also have a Ryzen 2600 and a motherboard for it that I could swap into
jacob-build-server, however I don't have any spare ddr4 ram.

Sure, though it doesn't have a public IP address and will be nearly
impossible to access publicly. Also, I won't guarantee that
jacob-build-server will be up and running all the time or that I will
even respond quickly to issues (feel free to ssh in and power it off
if all else fails), so we shouldn't have it be a critical
time-sensitive dependency, such as hosting a website.

We should probably still use debian salsa for building and setup some
kind of log scraper since it is publicly visible, unlike
I was thinking we would just put gitlab on jacob-build-server if
debian salsa is no longer viable.
