Welcome, and all is well

Just adding filler, everything is working nicely.

Here is a few interesting notes that people may or may not be aware of:

*RationalWiki runs off of a cable modem connection, with about 1000 kbps upload speed. Our dedicated IP address costs me an extra $30 month which is our only real "per month" charge anymore.

*RationalWiki now has two computers dedicated to it. The first is the main server, an Intel Pentium Dual Core 2.2 GHz processor, 2 gigabytes of ram, and 300 gigabytes of space. The second is a Intel Pentium 4 2 GHz processor, 1 gigabytes ram, and 100 gigabytes of space. The second machine is dedicated to hosting bots that run on RW. At the moment it is running wpbot, stubbot, and capturebot. If anyone has a bot they would like run on our "bot" server just let me know and I can check it out.

*Thanks to recent fund raising efforts we do have power backup finally. Which is a great thing since for most of June the fuses to my room were frequently blown. Luckily, you guys were saved the majority of it thanks to our battery backup.

*Our on site backup system is protected from fire and theft by being locked in a small fire proof case drilled into my floor, connected via a USB cable drilled in a hole in the back of the case.

*External peripherals, such as monitor, keyboards, all salvaged from equipment being tossed out of my lab. This includes the second "bot" machine that was just recently setup.

And there we go, that should cover an obligatory "content" requirements for the opening of a blog. Bookmark this site and refer back to it during periods when the site is inaccessible. If I am I aware of the problem and working on it I will post here.
