added a new bandwidth speed test to our Tests/Tools
section. It's called testmy.net
This test performs upstream and downstream testing. Take a look.
We also have new entry in
our Member Sites.
is a new Step-by-Step article (the first
in a long time). It shows a few tricks on how to more effectively
use the "Lock Computer" function in Windows NT or 2000. Check it
out here: "Lock Computer" Tricks
Thanksgiving everyone! Enjoy some time with your loved ones and be
safe during this long weekend. Yummy... turkey!
few changes around here. I renamed the "NIC Testing" section to "Articles"
because we're going to have few new articles around here. Shuttle
computers sent me a SV24 case/motherboard for us to review. Also,
VIA sent us a VIA C3 933 Mhz CPU to look at. Both will go into our new
server. The article should be coming out soon. The cool thing
about the C3 933 is that it requires a passive heatsink, no fan.
Wow, at 933 Mhz!
added a new dynamic DNS service to our DNS section.
It's GetMyIP.com and
I've heard good things about their service. Take a look at what they
have to offer.
have been asking about this so I added a new dynamic DNS update utilities
It's a shareware dynamic DNS update utility that works with many Dynamic
DNS services. Many people recommend this utility so check it out
and see if it fits your needs.
also have added a new site to our Member Sites
have a few new additions to our Member Sites
section so go check it out and see what people have done with their own
webservers. Some of the websites look a bit dead. If you have
a dead website, I will soon be removing them from the list. On the
same note, if you have a site that I removed because it was previously
dead but is now online, drop me an email
and I'll get you on the list again.
Since our site is growing
quite nicely, I decided to look into upgrade the DSL line speed.
We currently have 128 upstream which is technically about twice as fast
as a dialup 56 modem. However, it has been running very stable over
the past year. The DSL company told me that for some reason my house
isn't able to get anything greater than 128 upstream. This is strange
because I know my line can handle up to 1.5 each way. I guess Verizon
is being screwy again. Oh well, I guess we'll live.
In order to support the cost
of running this site, banner advertising space is now for sale. Since
this is pretty much a one man operation, I am completely flexible with
the details. Rates are very flexible (and very low!) and we can work
out details like impressions, duration, etc. Send me an email
and we'll talk. Even if you have a tiny website, you can still advertise
