Wow, just in time. Less than a month after I got muricated.net up and running, gothic.net goes down. I'd held that shell account for years. I won it in a little contest. The administrator (if anybody knows how to get in touch with Weaselboy Darren, lemme know, I've got files up there I'd like back) said he'd give a shell account with full user rights to the person who could mailbomb the guy who crashed his girlfriend's birthday party the most. I found a multithreaded app that had a pretty comprehensive list of open relays, and took his box to hell. I got the account, and promptly uploaded the shitty HTML2.0 page I had previously hosted on my grand rapids freenet account. Since, the mailbox has been inundated with spam to the point of futility, the website has fallen in to disrepair, and I had resorted to using it as a pic host for LJ. So maybe it's for the best, since gothic.net came and went a long time ago, and the account was just a favor. Still, it's like losing your baby teeth, shedding your past in a coming of age. When I first logged in to that account, I was in high school. I was dialing in from my Cyrix 6x86 150 with a 6.5 gig hard drive and using Netscape Navigator Gold 3.2 to do HTML layout. Yeah, things are faster and brighter now, but it doesn't mean seeing your past fade away feels any better.

I know the feeling. I just dumped Len-Net as my ISP in favor of TC3net's DSL service (which rocks, btw), but it was like saying goodbye to an old friend. But now, I look at the updates I've done to the Humachine web page since version 1 (I think I am on version 4.3 - frames baby!) and I realize I am better off now. Faster connection, my own private e-mail address instead of an all inclusive family address, and the knowledge that comes with experience. I've learned from my mistakes along the way.

BTW, any advice on setting up an FTP? I'd like to put up some Humachine MP3s on our web page without resorting to MP3.com.

Yup. One, get dynamic DNS. Two, get an FTP server app. Three, set up directories, logins, pass-thru on port 21 from your gateway.
