I suspect there's something nice about looking downstairs and knowing that Uncensored is there.

There's a kind of feeling one gets from looking at the equipment running a BBS that one cannot describe.

It's the blinky lights at home syndrome.. Even though when IG looks out his office door he's got more blinky lights than he knows what to do with.

You're right, it's kind of weird, especially when you're not the one running it. You spend all this time logged into a particular host system, and you feel like you've gotten to know it somehow. For some reason that makes it an unusually significant experience if you happen to have the chance to see the actual hardware.

mmmm ... blinkylights

I get worried when IG starts talking about significant experiences and knowing it somehow and then hardware.

Are you insinuating that I'm some sort of geek?

No insinuation here.

Yeah, that was out and out assertion: he called you a geek.

Personally, if I had access to such a facility, and the access cards to get in and out whenever I wanted, I wouldn't hesitate to move for a moment.

So based on the past few messages, one can infer:

IG = geek
IO = uber geek

Hmm. I have access to a Full T1, while not quite as nice as multiple T3s or a few OC3s, but it works. So I did move Haven over to it. Made my life easier not having to worry about running a server/servers on a residential connection.

I finally moved my website over to in preparation for training TDY (I didn't want to leave the server running unattended and have my wife have to move it while I'm gone). As nice as it is to have it on a system that is stable, fast, and accessible with a real domain name, it's not the same as having it on my own box in my own closet. The house is always emptier when the server is off. Well, quieter, anyway.

Only a 97. I saw a few places I could improve my score a bit, although I don't know how many points it takes to move up a percentile in the top range...

Hmm, my acedsl is down.. but it's not my new router. My line is fine, I can traceroute not just to their router but to the next hop from there (still in their network). Yet uncensored is still fine... Wierd. They broke something...

Maybe, maybe not. Aahz was having trouble reaching Uncensored earlier this afternoon, so there may be some routing problems going on.
