If all is working right, you can type in digitalquirk.ca and actually see a web site being hosted on an old computer I pieced together. My blog is still at tripod, of course.
I used a case and power supply that's nearly 10 years old, a K62-450 processor, socket 7 motherboard, 192 MB of RAM, a 4 gig hard drive, the disk drive and CD-ROM from an old IBM PS1, an old video card and an old ethernet card. I threw it all together and it worked. I installed Red Hat Linux 9 that I downloaded and burned a year ago when I tested it out. Though it's not that great for a personal desktop OS, it makes for an awesome server. My new server cost me absolutely nothing, and it's much faster than Tripod.
Once I migrate everything over to the new server and set up some sort of new blogger, I'm going to build another Linux-based backup PC for backup. It'll probably run a text-only version of Red Hat 9.
I had to do it...I'd been talking about setting up my own web server for a while. I used to run a BBS, so it must be in my blood. Others have offered hosting for free for me, which I'm thankful for...but this is something this old-skool computer geek just had to do.
