So I've gone ahead and payed for atleast another year on Dreamhost, so INTL will certainly continue on into 2008. However, donations are always nice big grin (paypal - hgnavi@gmail.com)

Also, since Dreamhost just turned 10 years old, they've gone ahead and decided to upgrade components on their server (it may be better than it was before), as well as to double what is available on this account now. To put this in perspective, INTL and a few other sites on this account only uses up about 3.1% (soon to be 1.5%) of server space and 0.0% of bandwidth.

Since this is the case, I've gotten a few ideas:

1) First, you will now notice that everyone's upload quota has been raised to 50 MB and the allowable avatars has been raised from 10 to 30. big grin

2) Secondly, how would you guys feel about having @interestingnonetheless.net email accounts?

3) Thirdly, and most importantly, I have this weird "omg why the fuck would you do this" idea. Something which I'm still not absolutely sure about, and will take my time doing: providing webspace (of a still undetermined size) to you guys.

The webspace (which would only be used for LEGAL purposes - so no child porn, no copyrighted works, no spam, no hate works, no bandwidth hogs (ie. huge files, DC, porn sites), nothing illegal) would not only include FTP capabilities, but also (if requested) mysql, domain docking (if you have your own domain), all the state-of-the-art features Dreamhost already offers, and some nifty pre-installed programs (a wordpress blog anyone?), and potentially more (enough to facilitate most needs) if you want. It all depends how successful this would be. For a place to have your own site, host a few files, have a blog, and so on, it isn't a bad idea at all.

For the most part, I'm going to take it slow with this one (and greatly appreciate suggestions). Therefore, I'm going to provide this to those who ask for it whom are reasonably active, premium members and/or have over 1000 posts. Unless you have your own domain (in which case you would need to change nameservers to point to Dreamhost) then the default username will be _______.interestingnonetheless.net. If you're interested, please do PM me.

If this is something people would like, please tell me and comment.

I've said already, I'm excited about the prospect. I personally wouldn't know how to take full advantage about most of the high-tech stuff (MySQL sounds like MySpace to me) but the e-mail and some personal webspace would be awesome for a simple site.

I'm up for some free webspace and wouldn't even mind chipping in a little if needed. Let me know what I can get for what.

The legal restrictions exist because I have to follow Dreamhost's terms of service (which are fairly lax compared to others), for which I have no control over. You may argue the reasoning for doing so as much as you would like in another thread, but I'd rather not lose INTL or my account merely because a user disagrees with the reasoning behind the ToS, and so would break it anyway. I just wished to clarify that. There's a lot you can do which isn't inclusive of illegal activity, but since I'm going to take this giant leap with the use of this webspace, that's just something I wanted you guys to be aware of.

The only thing that's not included in Dreamhost's ToS, that I have taken into account here (atleast initially) are bandwidth hogs. I don't object to bandwidth usage (with all that is on this account there's only 0.0% used - the bandwidth is substantial to do just about anything), but porn sites, DC, and huge files promote a giant burden on the server.

Do PM me if you would like this service. I will respond asking for a username, password, clarifying a subdomain name, and provide the steps necessary to use FTP (and Mysql or domain docking if requested) if that assistance is needed.

I also do appreciate donations, but they're not necessary. As premium users and users having spent a substantial portion of your life/time/whatever here, I consider it more of a gift or a thank you from INTL to you.

I also apologize for the slowness/downtime that may have occurred throughout today. Dreamhost is upgrading a core router and has a few major networking issues to work out.

I don't really see myself using webspace for a site - I mean, the 50MB limit is absolutely awesome. I don't see webspace being used for anything other than a blog or something, which may appeal to some users, but not myself.

Could someone like Ztolk who has the space please tell us about how it is useful to them? It might springboard some ideas and enthusiasm.

Well basically I use it to store images, flash movies, documents, zip files, small videos, sound clips, etc. It doesn't have some annoying website I have to log into, just an FTP (I use FileZilla) and then I can access my files with an easy to remember url. I once uploaded a 280 MB video and sent it to several of my friends. This was before youtube and photobucket. Now getting somewhere to store your pictures is easy, but it used to be hard to find good webspace.

I'd like to say that

1. I think the idea of INTL Domains is great.
2. I'm looking forward to E-Mail.
3. I will donate in several weeks when my loan comes through and I know I can dip into my savings.

The only good news I see from it is that atleast the server issues didn't effect the general trend much. It could've been worse, but it wasn't.

just because you provoke people into fights hopefully doesnt mean you'll ever be allowed any sort of actual official place here beyond ''forummer''.
