with the amount of outages of this forum in the last few months i have been thinking about getting a server hosted so we can have a place to communicate and do stuff such as a wiki that we can't do here. i have never administered a server before, so i would need someone to step up and help with that part of it.
i was looking at what godaddy.com has to offer and thier package.

Deluxe Plan:
• 100 GB Space • 1,000 GB Transfer
• 1,000 Email Accounts • FREE! Software
• 25 MySQL Databases • Unlimited Email Forwards
• Forums, Blogging, Photo Galleries • No ads
• EXCLUSIVE! Metropolis Hosting Community
• FREE! $25 Google® AdWords® Credit

looks like a good deal. i checked and pocket-penguin.com is not taken (please be nice and don't register it to annoy us) i can probably initially chuck out a year's worth of hosting and a few years on domain registeration. the second benifit is i will most likely have enough enough room that i can host other stuff if someone needs some space.

anyone have any comments on this?

it's a nice thought, but someone else already beat you to setting up a new forum...

i have been looking into this for the last few days and i was mainly focused on pda development. and honestly if you wanted to get some help or assistance alot of campanies and peop;e would want more then just some people chatting on a public forum to convince them.

on another note i found a dev kit that was not to bad in price at
http://www.logicpd.com/eps/som/freescale/i.MX31/
the MIMX31CSOM module i looked on arrownac.com and it showed a price of about 256 for a single unit.

i also email a guy about buying a M9328MX21ADSE (mx21 dev kit) and he wanted 250 USD for it. i am not sure if the mx21 would be worth it since it is an arm9 core and the mx31 is an arm11 core with alot more features, so building a distro based around the mx21 would still need work done on it while porting it to a mx31 system.

dev kit looks nice

actually i am supprised no one noticed it but pocketnix.org was recenttly registered, its in most of the examples for the dns ssh stuff and i am supprised no one has mentioned it yet, i wonder who registerd it smile.gif

i signed up with gpl host for a virtual private server, so i have root on the server and can install anything i want (cvs, email, dns, vpn, file sharing. you name it) i have it for 6 months already and the domain for 5

its not badley speced, 192MB 15GB of storage and 50GB transfer per month on a P4 with 10 other people. load seems quite low most of the time and the support is great.

when i get some more time i will finish off the mail system and get the site back up and running as well as some other things

I've been using godaddy for over a year now. Let me know if you have questions.
