Homies, I'm home! - September 9, '98 by JoseQ
Hello again from JoseQ! I'm back to work on the page finally. I'm sorry I had to go for so long but I had no choice. The people at Communitech (feel free to flame him or him) decided that emulation is illegal for some reasons. First reason is that sites with high traffic take too much bandwidth. I don't understand how that makes emulation illegal, or how it makes keeping my money for two unused months of service legal, but oh well, they have control over the server. Which of course made me decide on the simplest answer. I should get my own server, and oh yes, you are reading this from nowhere else than my own Computer Room at home. This server is what eventually will be Speedhost.Com, my new enterprise business aimed at Web Hosting. Competing against Communitech? You betcha! So what's new?
So far, the site hasn't gone through any changes. I just spent a few days configuring the web server to my liking as well as the Operating System on the server machine. If you're interested on the specs, it is a PII-266 running on 288MBs of RAM, two 4.3GB Fast Wide SCSI-2 Hard Drives, a 7GB Ultra DMA drive although this may change to three 4.3 SCSI and a 4.3 UDMA. So if you have interest in Web Hosting, send me some mail and I'll fix you up with some great space at incredible prices.
So whats going to happen? I'll revamp the site's under the hood processing first. I will go from CGI to plain HTML. What will this affect? Everything will be faster and the load on the server will be lower. The ROMs area will not come back until I put the server on its own uplink to a T3 connection, right now it's on my cable modem, so be patient, should be a couple of days.
After all that happens and all the smoke clears, I will be adding a right hand sidebar. This will include the Top Ten Downloads, as well as some other interesting stuff. There still space available so if you can think of a good thing to have there, let me know.
Other than that, in October the site should be completely back to normal, but faster and better than ever. I will have a couple of surprises in the next few days so keep coming back for more. Thanks for the support!
