NTFS is changing!

Waddy has decided that it is no longer worth him paying for hosting NTFS at rackshack, but don't despair as the rest of the team are currently making plans to change ntfs.org into a new site.

So far we have decided on the following new system from https://www.servermatrix.com and I will be taking on the site costs, which I am hoping will be covered by whatever advertising I can take on:

Server: Super Celeron 2.4 GHz
Primary HDD: 80GB Hard Drive
RAM: 512 MB RAM
Number of ips: 5 IP Addresses
Bandwidth: 1000 GB Bandwidth
Uplink Port Speed: 100 Mbps Uplink
Web Analytics: Urchin 100 profiles
Operating System: Free BSD 4.9

The new hosts do not allow IRC servers, so we will be moving the IRC channel back to efnet for the time being. The entire site and database will be moved to the new site, so I can assure you there will be minimal data lost!

The one thing we don't have is a new name. We need something interesting but relevent to the news and discussion we have here, preferably a .com.

And now I open it to the floor...

Can't you keep NTFS as the Name?

Minimal data loss?? Sure hope it's less than that. :p

well some server configuration will be lost. no part of the site itself.
we can't keep the name but ntfs.org will redirect to the new site for a while when the new server is ready.

rackshack was $99 a month.
Was thinking if you did a premium membership here, which would entitle you to so hidden features, at say £5 per year, you would I am sure get the money to cover $99 per month.

You could offer e-mail addies upto 5 per payer. To satrt off with an idea, with pop forwarding allowed, say 15 meg in box and a bit more if we pay more.

nice, i presume you perster for freebsd? :p

Pester? Where did you get that assumption, i pointed [e]-punk towards servermatrix as the host i currently work for has two servers there, and they are rock solid, second, i prefer BSD, as without a control panel, it is probably the most secure, and i know my way around it.

If it is... you might as well name the new site WinFS. :p

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
