I think I’m the last one on the internet crazy enough to try this, but here goes…
So the VPS where I run my BBS came up, and they wanted more money. And honestly, running a BBS from 1994 in 2015 just doesn’t cut it when it comes to system resources, and I’ve been looking for an excuse to bring it ‘home’ so I moved it inside. The cool thing though is that I don’t have to use usermode nat anymore, so I can use FTP to shuffle files around, which is a nice thing to have. I may have to investigate if there is an rsync as well, as reading files directly from the VM would be a bonus. It’d be cool to read things like Tradewars scores, last user activity and whatnot.
While I was setting up HTTP, and repointing to a new address, I figured I’d go all in on OS/2, and load up Apache on OS/2 2.0, and let it host it’s own website.
I guess the next thing to do is setup a RAM disk, and virtual servers so I can move Team OS/2 onto OS/2. Someone named Kohtaro Shinya just snagged the original Team OS/2 page. At least it’s not some forex scam, but now it’s tourism for Osaka.
But yes, my crappy BBS still lives, I think it’s moved hosts at least 7 times since 2011.
