I use Netsol as the nameserver for Floodgap, though I used to run it locally. I imagine the business DSL/business Ethernet deals are similar.

That said, if I didn't have a need for home monitoring, I'd probably buy a slice and run it off of that.


Yep, sounds almost exactly like my setup. It used to be Speakeasy when I first got it, but Megapath bought them.

Dammit, I want to be purple too! :D

Glad you got what you needed, Pete. I guess I'll just have to pay closer attention in future...

I'll open it up again in a few months - a grand total of $900.00 came in over two days, and I was worried PayPal would freeze the account due to the rapid payments. I'd like to see if I could put up some kind of meter in the future that would cut it off once a certain goal/threshold has been reached.

It's good to know there's still people willing to keep it all going. I can't contribute myself at this point, but I just might in the future.

Wow, that's some impressive generosity overall there once you add it all up, and in such a short space of time too!

I am also somewhat gutted I missed the boat on the donating.. kept thinking.. I'll do it when I get home!! I think next time you open up the donations you may have a situation akin to the January Sales here in the UK..

In that case I demand to be added to the mailing list for the advance notice "door buster" specials that US pre- during- and post-holiday sales are now littered with!

Out of curiosity, do you have any figures on what level of bandwidth the forum takes?

Hu,

seems i missed out on supporting the site :( I'm not here every day, hope i don't miss it next time. I'm really glad for all the effort and work put into nekochan, without it most of my machines won't be running :)

Nekonoko has closed the Paypal Donation action for now, since he gathered sufficient funds to maintain the site. If needed in the future he will accept donations again. Stay tuned.

I saw the donations opened up last night and reached the goal quickly. I'm really pleased that nekochan.net forums and wiki haven't fallen into the silicon dustbin like some other SGI oriented web resources.

I hope the community continues to support the site and it's able to stay vibrant and free of ads. I wouldn't mention the ads except I was searching a forum for another community and (at least without logging in) the search feature had a video advertisement (Progressive Insurance) captcha that you had to watch to get the code to enter (and it had sound).

Thank you Peter for putting up with this unruly gang of enthusiasts. I hope we're more enjoyable than annoying.
