Default To kill a webserver....

Well my faithful linux box finally gave up the ghost today. Almost 3 years of pretty much 24/7 webserving/network routing/firewalling/spam filtering/virus scanning has taken its toll. I've decided to go with a third party web/mail server (www.1and1.com) which is offering a pretty sweet 3 year for free deal with no obligations or cost to sign up. For those looking for some webspace you might want to check it out. As for my dead web server it will take a bit to move all my backups and stuff to the new hosts so you may see a bunch of red X'* in my posts....Also my email is down as well (for those who have it) easist way to in touch with me is a pm here or MSN messenger.

Thanks all and shed not a tear for the dead Dell Poweredge it served me well.

Storage space is 500MB 5GB bandwith per month with each extra GB costing .99 cents. No cost for 3 years, has FTP, MAIL, PHP, MySQL, CGI, FLASH, web page creator, etc.. Domain registrations are 5.99/year including DNS. I definately say stop by and check it out.

I'm in the middle of the process. I've verified, but ran out of time before I came to work. I'll finish tonight. Thanks for the tip.
