[REBOL] Re: Rebol and New Hybrid Software Model

From: btiffin:rogers at: 16-Sep-2007 14:18

Chris; Not to sound glib; it is not my intention. Start up your own hosting service. Spread REBOL by spreading REBOL. :) Home PC's are more than powerful enough with (completely free) GNU/Linux server packages... And this is the not trying to sound glib part...if you are stuck with lowspeed modem connections that is not really a viable option, but I'd bet that renting some space in a town that has high speed...all you need in about 6 cubic feet and a drop. Offer up the service to a few people and the line lease and space could ending up costing you near zero. And (more expensive) two-way satellite is available pretty much anywhere, but uplinks may always be slower than downlink but projects like UNIC may change that landscape soon. The biggest time sink holes are backups, security and working out 'proof of life' anti-spam measures. I know that everyone on the ML is tech savvy enough to be the next Go Daddy or BlueHost. Cheyenne is a great Web Server. (Go Doc Go!) The level of REBOL software is growing everyday, and I hope soon they will play well together (Vanilla, QM ... (haven't give Annabelle a test drive yet) ... many larger systems get into namespace problems but as things progress this complaint should start to disappear). Being your own webmaster is just ... umm ... cool. Advertising REBOL makes it sweet. Cheers, Brian On Saturday 15 September 2007 10:58, Chris Dwyer wrote:
