Guys, we are getting closer!

It is good not to rush this.
New info keeps turning up.

I was looking around at hosts that accept PayPal, stumbled upon this one...
too good to be true?

http://www.servage.net

What greatly interested me, apart from the 330G/month and 7.5G storage,
is they use a distributed server system, meaning that they claim virtually
100% uptime -- and consistently fast performance, no server bottlenecks.

I actually pay less than the advertized price since after the first two months, I pre-paid for a year. After the frst DVD iso was hosted the access speed increased with the usr_more. I have been watching the band width increase by use nice.

Since the main server farm is in Arizona, Flash would get wickly fast download.

Ted, when I click on the URL of the iso, the Mozilla download manager starts up showing an impossibly high rate (2 or 3 MB/sec if I remember) but the rate drops rapidly and it takes a minute or more to finish downloading, so the sustained rate is much less than that. I'm not complaining; that's still pretty fast. More important than that, when I first clicked on the 20oct05 URL the link was dead for a while. I didn't investigate further, only waited a few hours then it worked.

Now regarding the negative feedback it seems to be related to overloading the new webhost. So, we shouldn't put all our hosting needs in one basket for other reasons, too. We currently have Barry's web pages & wiki pages, John's forum here, the temporary forum now starting to be used by developers, Puppian's new forum, the IRC channels, and the Foundation Committees blog. Not to mention the six download sites/mirrors, the P2P (Peer-to-Peer) methods (mostly torrents), the various DotPup hosts, the puplet hosts, and other individually-owned Puppy-related pages. Also, the SimpleForumPro forum archive is not currently available. Which, for those that remember, is a good example that shows that we may have good storage space and upload/download speeds, but high-CPU and disk usage on the server could cause problems. Also the Wiki server uses reverse DNS lookups constantly so the DNSs will have to be robust also. So, I would recommend heavily using subdomains that redirect to existing locations (i.e. forums.puppylinux.org). Also, we should be ensuring important things are mirrored and backed up.

So, in summary just as long as we manage the new host well, then servage.net looks good to me.

Flash: that's been a quirk of the Mozilla Download Manager that I've seen many times. It starts out unrealistically fast and then evens out.

Sorry the dog ate my password. My website is like Christmas Lights: If you don't take them down, late next year they are up early for Christmas. I really need to get a new digital camera.

When I put up the usr_wine.sfs that is when I noticed the increase. The DVDiso was the first change since Christmas time last year Cool

That's the data since 30 Sep 2005. Uptime record since April:
http://uptime.netcraft.com/up/graph?site=www.servage.net

The two charts are very different, but uptime is not the same as availability?
