Well, if you must know ...

Its actually a Dual P3/800 box with 1gb ram, and a 20gb hard disk (mostly unused right now).

As for uplink, currently its on a 768 SDSL line. We were looking for a while to see if we could get a free or REAL cheap co-location offer, but none were forthcoming. Besides which, we've had problems with people putting the GOTH.NET box beside their desks at work -- mainly with management not knowing, and all of a sudden 'finding out', and it getting yanked - and in some cases, the hardware being disassembled.

As PreZ mentioned, everytime we've had the box hosted somewhere, we've run into problems.

The first time was back in mid 2000 when it had the plug pulled by the co-lo company, the computer itself got mysteriously eaten up and integrated into the company's own systems and all that was left was the harddisk.

The second time we had it hosted somewhere it had it's plug pulled for several weeks (last Jan-Feb), then service reinstated until August 2001 when the person who organised the co-lo left the company and they decided to pull the plug only a day into the 3 week notice we'd been given to relocate it. We tried to find another suitable option, which wasn't forth coming and then decided to just go ahead and host it on our own connection because we were fed up having GOTH.NET's life in someone else's hands.

To add insult to the injury of having the plug pulled in August, it took another 3 months for the 2 human elements involved to get their act together enough to Overnight-Express FedEx the computer from Australia to here. Which only served to further our resolve to not have GOTH.NET be dependant on others. At least now when there's things going on, we can do something about it ourselves.
