    Nice. Was just talking in another net about how it might be time for me to upgrade this old box.

    CO: What hardware are you running today?

    Acer Veriton M275. 4 GB Ram. Intel, 2 cores. Plenty of hard drive space. It's definitely not a bad PC but pretty old and one I re-purposed from an office a few years back. I tend to recycle and reuse as much as possible rather than buying new.

    Nice hardware man! I choose a laptop because of the WIFi and that its pretty small and doesnt make alot of sound. Even that i have alot of space in my
    house i really need everything nice and tidy and i hade when my house is
    messy.

    I have a FTP running on the BBS, not the Mystic BBS because i want more
    control over ratio, leeching etc. If anyone want an account on the FTP please let me know.

    For the most part, recycled hardware is completely adequate for the purpose of running a BBS.

    I agree! The laptop i found was not doing anything, just collecting dust. The main reason why i did the change was to get rid of the noise... this laptop
    is not taking the same space, i can remotely administrate it via RDP (on the LAN) and also its much more quiet.

    Nice! Distortion is also on synchronous gigabit as of earlier this week. For the first time since I've had broadband at home my upload seems are actually higher than my downloads most of the time. :)

    Who's offering synchronous gigabit and how much? And what's their policy on running servers? :D

    I can actually get it from, I believe, 4 different providers in my neighborhood, though the one I'm using is the cheapest - Webpass, owned by Google Fiber. $45 bucks a month if you prepay for a year. So far so good.

    Things have changed quite a bit over the last decade in regards to internet speeds. I remember having to pay extra for 50m down/5m up, and now the standard
    speed here is 225/10 or something like that, but around here we're still limited compared to what you have anyway.

    I don't think Google is getting their hands dirty around here for awhile, as long as there's still rusty cables in the ground. haha

    It's still mostly the same around here, but better broadband availability is one of the perks I have living so close to downtown so I decided to take advantage of it. Towns outside of the city, or even other parts of the city, aren't so lucky. I *was* paying $60 for 400mb down (that got bumped up to
    500) ~15 up from Comcast until then, and even that was more than what a lot
    of people could get.

    Most of the fiber providers in my immediate area are actually only running circuits to a few specific (tall) buildings, then using line of sight
    wireless (usually microwave, I think) to other tall buildings in the area. As you can imagine the availability is pretty limited. :/
