Looking for people to share server with

Filed under
Just talk

The last few months I have been using a server for security research, kernel testing, mod security rules testing, firewalls, dos protection, you name it. As well as to host my ircd and site. We basically have the server for development and testing although it is ran just like any other hosting server. In order to do the research we do we must keep a server. One is directadmin and the other is cpanel which we bought recently to learn the ins and outs of it and perhaps write some useful tutorials and walkthroughs for admins. Plus we figured we could sell hosting on it to balance out our budget.

This has not really worked which I don't guess we marketed hosting that hard and I would really like not to even deal with basic hosting and clients, all that stuff.

What we are looking for is some people to come in on the server with us like a 1/4, 1/3, or 1/2 share. This would be ideal for developers as we will install any module or software you need as long as it doesn't interfere with anything else on the server. Also ideal for bigger sites with irc or whatever. There is teamspeak installed on both boxes and IRC and adult content is allowed.

This is NOT hosting, this is a server co-operative and there is no support tickets and all that. Just me on msn if you ever need anything installed or something is broke, that is far as support goes so if you don't know your way around a linux server then this probably isn't for you. Also no small hosting accounts, just fractional shares of the server.

People with shares on the server can reseller hosting if they like but you are responsible for the people you host.

This is a totally non profit, and all shares will be at cost. Proof of billing can be shown. I would prefer to have only developers and large sites with binary processes then reseller hosting but we are flexible.

So if anyone would be interested in something like this you can message me on msn Serious inquiries only and again, this is not a server hosting service, it is a non-profit server co-operative.

The specs of the directadmin server is pentium 4 3.2 ghz with ht, 1 gig ram, and 160 gb hd sata. 100mbit connection, 1tb of bandwidth monthly, directadmin control panel, and centos 4.4 OS with grsecurity and all other security software. Contact me on msn for pricing and what is available.

The cpanel server is pentium4 3.2ghz with HT, 1 gb ram, 120gb hd, Cpanel/WHM, CentOS with grsecurity and other security software, it is on a 10mbit dedicated pipe with unmetered bandwidth so around 3300 gb transfer monthl;y. Contact me for availabilty.

People who do want half share will be granted root access as long as you dont do any oddball stuff or mess anything up otherwise I am the one who manages the servers.

Why Everyone should know vim

Vim is an improved version of Vi, a known text editor available by default in UNIX distributions. Another alternative for modal editors is Emacs but they’re so different that I kind of feel they serve different purposes. Both are great, regardless. I don’t feel vim is necessarily a geeky kind of taste or not. Vim introduced modal editing to me and that has changed my life, really. If you have ever tried vim, you may have noticed you have to press “I” or “A” (lower case) to start writing (note: I’m aware there are more ways to start editing but the purpose is not to cover Vim’s functionalities.). The fun part starts once you realize you can associate Insert and Append commands to something. And then editing text is like thinking of what you want the computer to show on the computer instead of struggling where you at before writing. The same goes for other commands which are easily converted to mnemonics and this is what helped getting comfortable with Vim. Note that Emacs does not have this kind of keybindings but they do have a Vim-like mode - Evil (Extensive Vi Layer). More often than not, I just need to think of what I want to accomplish and type the first letters. Like Replace, Visual, Delete, and so on. It is a modal editor after all, meaning it has modes for everything. This is also what increases my productivity when writing files. I just think of my intentions and Vim does the things for me.

Exploring Contributors Centrality Over Time

At the end of my previous post we concluded with yet another question. Indeed, on the 2017 KDEPIM contributor network we found out that Christian Mollekopf while being a very consistent committer didn't appear as centrality as we would expect. Yet from the topology he seemed to act as a bridge between the core contributors and contributors with a very low centrality. This time we'll try to look into this and figure out what might be going on. My first attempt at this was to try to look into the contributor network on a different time period and see how it goes. If we take two snapshots of the network for the two semesters of 2017, how would it look? Well, easy to do with my current scripts so let's see! Read more
