I’ve had a Slice for quite some time now and I’ve *finally* moved this site to it. The last several times I’ve traveled, we’ve had a power outage, and the server hasn’t come back up when the power restored. It’s not a terribly old server, but it seems to be nearing the end of its life, and I’m ready to not be in the ISP business any more. So, farewell, buglet, hello malbec. The days of my running servers in my home are nearing an end.
I finally got a Slice, and am migrating my websites to it so that I can retire the ancient PIII 450 that I’ve been hosting my sites on for the last 6 or 7 years. So far I’ve messed up critical system files 3 times (you know, stuff like /etc/passwd, /etc/shadow, /etc/group), and had to rebuild from scratch. Hopefully I’ll be more careful now. And make backups.
I’m really impressed with how easy it is to set up a new machine. And with their prices.
