  • Letting 3rd parties update credit card details

    Some of our customers pay for their servers using a 3rd party’s credit card (their boss’, partner’s or a generous friend’s). Every now and then those details need to get updated (new CC expiry dates, or a replacement card).   You can now let 3rd parties set their credit card details on our site without […]

  • DebConf15 Report

    Camera Canon EOS 650D We love Debian.  A lot.  In fact we make it our recommended distro.  We do that since it makes it easy to deploy, and maintain most recent packages resulting in fewer sysadmin headaches for us and our customers.

  • Dallas network upgrade

    Dallas is our busiest location.  We have many, many cabinets there filled with wonderfully shiny servers (all black, as befits our Kiwi origins).  That setup has grown somewhat organically since 2005.  Our core networking wiring was starting to be a little scary.  And network capacity (ports and bandwidth was staring to be an issue). So […]

Behind the scenes we have setup honey trap servers.  Botnets with no good reason to connect to these servers attempt to connect to the […]
