New Home for this Site!

This system is now running off my home machine. It wasn’t too big a job to get it going, but I’m certain that there are still some bugs to work out before it’s 100%.

Please bear with me!

This site is running off one of my home machines, a hardened Linux-Mandrake 8.0 PowerPack installation on a Pentium II/350 machine with 128 megs of memory and 6+ gigs of hard drive space.

It connects to the internet through Cincinnati Bell ZoomTown’s ADSL lines using ZoomService to automatically log on each time the machine is booted.

ZoomService also logs the IP address to YI.ORG, a re-director which is necessary since my ISP uses dynamic addressing. Each time the machine logs onto the Internet, a different IP address is given. Logging on to YI.ORG provides a consistent, easy-to-use way to make sure that DrewVogel.COM is always where you expect it to be.

Future enhancements may include migrating the actual DrewVogel.COM site to this hardware, provided that it can be done with a domain name and dynamic IP addresses…
