A couple of days ago, Jeremy wrote that three of his computers gave up on him. I only lost one server this week, which I have maintained for the last couple of years. It died right Google and Sun joined forces! The server was a Cobalt RAQ3, which was Sun’s version of a Linux Web server. It had a nice administration interface to set up the DNS, websites, users, email, but at the same time it was open enough to install more applications like mySql, web mail and offered the full shell experiance. But why run your own server? It’s nice, but for a couple bucks a month, I get a really reliable solution at Dreamhost.com that offers all that I currently need. Almost everything… I still have an Intel server sitting in my bedroom.

My Comcast Internet connection is really unreliable the last couple of days. Today I was working from home and for the last couple of hours the service is on and off. The same thing happened over the last couple of days when I logged in the evening. Booooooo!!
