Been a long week and I had to deal with some red tape internally (of my own creation!), but finally have some working shell service to sell to people who want it.
I had posted last week about the issue(s) of shell services and decided that I would do the work to put this kind of service together as I have both the experience and gumption to do so. Even includes my smiley, happy-go-lucky support attitude!
So it is available and sales is ready to take the orders. I don’t expect a lot of people signing up for this, but it takes care of a sect of customers that still want to do things in a manner that isn’t web based, that isn’t all mouse driven.
I can relate to that!
- Ubuntu Hardy
- FreeBSD 8
- emacs, vi, joe
- mutt (no elm, no pine – all Maildir oh well)
- procmail filtering
- IMAP, POP3, SMTP, with SSL and STARTTLS goodness
- reasonable and ample disk storage quota on our NetApp gear
Let the nerding begin!
