A New Hope...err...Host

My colo box is getting evicted any minute now and I have swallowed a bitter pill and let it go.

Having your own colo box is like having a shed for a non-geek. You get to mess about on it without worrying what anyone says and you can install whatever you like. I'm going to miss it.

The inimitable Andrew has graciously offered to host the few things I truly need. That unfortunately leaves my nethack server dead in the water for the time being. Fear not fellow adventurers, it will return.

I'm not ruling out getting another colo box. It's just that right now is not a good time to be setting one up. I'd ideally like to have a box in Australia and trying to set that up remotely would be a nightmare.

I'll be in Oz sometime in the first half of next year to do the US Visa dance again so I think I'll just wait till then.

icarus.chaosengine.net has flown high and served me well for 5 years. Not bad for a box I bought second-hand in an auction with a dead CPU and RAM. May the silicon gods welcome you into their arms.
