Oh yeah! I almost forgot. Account "request" works now. If you want an account on lgm, all you need to do is telnet or ssh to littlegreenmen as account "request".

For those in Windows, that means grabbing PuTTY, selecting ssh, and going to host littlegreenmen.armory.com (or l.armory.com, for the lazy).

For those in Mac worlds, that means grabbing niftyTelnet, and ssh-ing to host littlegreenmen.armory.com (or l.armory.com, for those who hate their keyboard and want to pretend that they can go everywhere with their WEAK CRIPPLED ONE BUTTON MICE

*ahem* Tangent...

For those on any *nix box, ssh request@l.armory.com

If/When it prompts you for a password, hit enter.

A short questionnaire follows.

At some point, I add you.

So WHY do you want a littlegreenmen account?

Littlegreenmen offers web space (PHP enabled, at that), ftp space, a mail account, a shell account, compilers/interpreters for all sorts of languages, a community of techies of one sort or another, SQL access, an opportunity to learn *nix, and the ready and willing aid of a sysadmin that you know and love ; )

What's the catch?

While I'm tempted to say "There is no catch", there is actually one mild catch. I have a short questionnaire that I ask people to fill out. I believe it's 9 questions (and 4 of which are "Do you want this information listed on your account?").

The information isn't given out to anyone and is put in a secure location. I only ask it so that I have some recourse to follow if there is a problem with the account (e.g. someone's using too much bandwidth/CPU time/hard drive space/etc, someone cracks the account, etc).

So I suppose you have to trust that I'm a competent sysadmin and that my word is any good at all.

On DSL then? What kind of bandwith do you have?

Yup. 1 Mbps.

We have a few more lines into the house too, but that's the most significant one.
