Yes..... Those kinds of comments from Ralph always worry me!
The problem being is that FPI still has the money, it doesn't, however, have the know-how any longer.
Ralph, dare I say it, is pretty damn good at running servers and knows the FPI structure like no other server admin knows their servers. Should he decide to do a go slow or not get involved in this newest incarnation then I worry that it won't go far at all.
Now, I have managed to get a modified version of the FSD server from a friend, however, it is based around the "Gentoo" Linux distro which has to go through "portage" and then be "emerged"...... excellent!
Currently trying to load Gentoo onto my server, however I don't have a dedicated IP here anymore. I have just filled in the "request" form from my ISP and it takes about 20 days for one to be allocated. Anyone got a server that we could have a play with in that time?
Hopefully when FPI(v.2) comes out of the woodwork we will be able to offer my server to them to use as a voice and traffic mirror in the UK. Get the software on it and then do as we wish with it.
Anyway, whatever happens, I'm sure we can get some sort of little community out of it. As long as there are enough of us willing!
