From my perspective as the web coordinator, Chris Hedemark's idea has several
attractions. More control is the foremost. But who's going to administrate this
machine? I hardly have enough time to keep up with the website, so I won't even
Our set up at Interspeed is perfectly satisfactory. Up-time is excellent. They
provide CGI-capability so I can do some fun stuff. We have unlimited disk
space. It costs $10/month. If we want to have our own domain name, it costs
$20/month plus the InterNIC fee of $35/yr.
OTOH, it would be nifty to have our own mailing lists. It would be great to
have a database server at our disposal. But I really worry about reliability of
a server run by volunteers. What if our administrator goes on vacation. Our
site and mailing lists could easily be down for a whole week. Yikes!
I also wonder if a $500 box is going to satisfy the computing requirements of
all the advantages Chris listed.
It's a neat idea and I am interested to see how far Chris can get.
Hope you have a very nice day, :-)
