  • My New Server

    My new dedicated server should be up in 24-72 hours, im kind of happy.

    Stats are

    350 gigs data transfer
    8 IP's (justified)
    Standard system installed with RedHat Linux 9.0 or Choice of OS
    Celeron 1.7 GHZ
    512 MB RAM
    40 GB Hard Drive
    24X7X365 Network Monitoring
    Rack and power included
    99.9% Uptime Guarantee
    MRTG Graphs

    For 99.00 a month 0setup, and I added 20.00 for Cpanel, and I added 60 gb seagate drive.
    so it's 129 a month. is that a good deal ? (un-managed, plan to read up on managing a server on the net and post on forums and hopefully be a self-taught learner like I was with the piano.)

      Script kiddies, I used to hang out with some of them.

      I thought about becoming a hacker once, but a good one.

        What do hackers have to do with script kiddies?

            A "good" one?
            Yet another term that's misused quite often..

            So many people mix and match the terms Hackers & Crackers...There is a big difference between the two.

            Anyway, nice server specs

              Actually, how did I mis-use the term ?
              I could say I believe in the 'evil' god and one would probably correct me and say the devil or satan when I mean the christian god who has no name really o.O?

              But anyway thanks

                Nothing major, but as far as I know, (correct me if I'm wrong) "hackers" are usually the "good" ones in most cases, and they do what they do just for the fun of it, and mean no actual harm. "Crackers" are the ones that try to do bad things intentionally, try to cause damage, steal information, etc.

                  Not really Vile.

                  Hackers are meerely coders. They edit programs to better fit their purposes. This term is old, and never meant people who break into systems. Hackers are not "good crackers", despite the term white hat and black hat.

                  The media just used the terms hackers and crackers in the same way, and thats how it is misused today. This is what I meant by my first post, when I said that script kiddie shave nothing to do with hackers.

                    The media is just filled with people who are completly clueless, so yeah, no doubt they are mostly the ones who use the terms interchangeably.

                              Hmm, expensive. Have you got a big website planned? We might be getting something like that for our forums - give a few a months.
