It was November, I think, November 2001, when me and my friend decided to start this "adventure", to keep a linux box always switched on, our little big server!
It became immediately the home for our experiments, it is giving us many satisfactions, even if it has only a 128/256kbit ADSL line.
The computer is located in Naples (Italy), at my friend home, and acts both as a server and as a firewall for his LAN.
We have a domain too, point your browser at and admire its configuration! :-)

The server is online all the time and works pretty well now, but how many problems we had in the past!
We have switched between 4 distros, first Mandrake 7.1, then 8.1, Debian, Slackware 8 and now back to Debian!
There are actually 4 users who make use of the server, but we are always looking for other people who want to join.

The services it offers currently are the obiquitous Apache server, an FTP server, ssh, a shoutcast server, sometimes a bunch of IPv6 bot and, on request, a freeciv server, a kaillera server, a Cube server, and maybe a Quake3 server. :-)
You can take a look to some statistics.

Some news:

  • 13th November 2003
    Converted to a Windows 2000 based server. No comment. :-(
  • Summer 2003 has closed and its domain hasn't be renewed, farewell "ServerONE"! :-(
  • March 2nd, 2003
    Yeah! After a month we're back with quite all the old functionalities.
    All this delay was caused by many things, like nvhs playing with Solaris, nvhs lack of time, and so on... :-)
    But at last here we are to rock again!

    nvhs did a complete backup in order to install Debian, so the server is down for manteinence.
