After a few trial and tribulations, is back up.

I ran into a couple problems. One was while in the process of tuning user limits, it broke apache (number of open files set too low). Of course, I didn't see this affect until apache got restarted, which was when...

...SpeakEasy moved me from the Seattle POP to the Atlanta POP. It wasn't until then I had to restart the machine after changing the addresses. It also took a day longer than it should have to propogate the DNS address change, due to some user-error at (and a *very* unituitive user interface when it comes to change the IP address of a nameserver.) As a result of SpeakEasy moving me, you should see sigificantly better usability when in the shell (30ms packet times instead of 140-160ms). is a service provided by jcwren for registered users of There is no charge for an account. For this incredibily low fee, you get shell access, file space, email, personal domain name (, Apache, PHP, mySQL, Perl (with modules added needed), and if you're crazy enough, Python. All this runs under FreeBSD on a AMD K6-III/450 with 96MB of memory and 13GB of disk hung out at the end of a 144Kpbs IDSL line.

If you're interested in an account, send me mail, we'll set you up.
