FIXME: title: Some More Humour

Warning! This code is a highly experimental adaptation of the instructions beamed to us by the friendly aliens of Tau Ceti. The API can and will be changing, evolving, and unpredictably morphing into little furry Ewoks, fluorescent killer bunny rabbits, and the knights who say 'Nee'. Use the code at your own risk, as it may cause flooding, polydactism, frogs falling from the sky, and the return of the Inca empire. And it will definitely warp space-time continuum in your local area.

I'm currently trying to work on:

  • A logo for my business: Cosmic Adventurers, Ltd
  • A logo for Hedu.net
  • and eventually the site layout for each of those sites..(which aren't linked because they don't exist yet)
  • Ad copy for Cosmic, and for the NICEBox

Gotta put in a cd..Mmmmm, Björk

Got LCA book 4 in the snail from Fatbrain yesterday. I've only just looked at the first few chapters, but there were two mild surprises already:

  • Linus Trovalds (sic) name is mispelled in the Acknowledgments for the fourth book straight
  • They specifically say in the first part that a hacker is a talented programmer and a cracker is a theif or vandal, and haven't screwed it up yet (Yay!)

Whee!

Cosmic Adventurers presents:

NICEBox

She needs a logo/mascot.
  • share network connection with unlimited number of machines
  • supports cable, DSL, and 56k modem connections
  • no arbitrary limits on IPs, connections
  • stateful packet filtering = "nothing gets in that didn't come from here first"
  • VPN tunnel endpoint
  • caching DNS server
  • access to 50+ alternate TLDs (.oss .geek .pacific ...) from the OpenDNS system
  • (basic IDS with email paging capability) (still in dev)

$450.00 US

installed on your site anywhere in Greater Metro Atlanta

Price is hovering, but 450 is believable. Geography is hazy. I almost want to say SE USA, but I think it's restricted to anywhere I can drive in less than 12 hours..Needs more thought

Online orders confirmed by phone within 24 hours

Shipping and travel can be easily arranged for out of state and international orders.

They pay, I travel, no?

Service, Support and Emergency Response Contracts available monthly, quarterly, annually for as little as $25 / month. (just service) These include scheduled maintainance and reduce the rates for support emergency calls.. Wording improved..Need rates ;)

Annual contracts include dedicated numeric pager for your site admin and your NICEbox

Contract numbers are nearly fake, probably way too low. Looking for help with that, for sure ;)

Custom configurations are welcome. Possibilities include:

  • web proxy for speed or safety (+50)
  • Intranet web server (+50..)
  • SQL Database Server (+50..)
  • Internal Email server (+100)
  • Internal File, Printer shares (+50 and up)
  • Network Authentication (PDC or K5) (+50)
  • Certificate Authority for PKI
  • Network Backup
  • Network Logging
  • can interface to faster links with additional hardware CSU/DSU

Beacon Service:

Hypothetical as yet, but very doable. Need to guess out an annual rate for this.
  • secure server colocated on multiple fast links securely polls your NICEBox at a set interval and alerts me and you if it goes down or cries for help
  • alerts include numeric page, email, IM, and alpha page
  • And could include all sort of wackiness like minor web edits, RSS, and local print jobs
  • Once i know, after an interval (5 minutes), I call you / log in.. and get it fixed
