2nd post! (from the LJ office) [Aug. 4th, 2003|08:56 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
Been at the new office all day. whitaker made the first post, but I've got the second!

The Danga office now has:
  • A phone line
  • A 26400 bps modem connection to my house, doing NAT for all the network ports within the office
  • Desks for everyone.
  • trash cans
  • power strips
  • refridgerator, dr. pepper
  • coffee maker, coffee
  • the futon from my house
  • ...
Many notable things are missing, like DSL (getting on the 13th), and chairs. But we're making progress!

Props to evan for his invaluable patience setting up PPP crap.

Anybody read my journal who works at Verizon and wants to rush our DSL order? :-)

Sit on your towers and save space/money/time.

Shut the hell up, Brad.

I've got a lap top for you to work on.

1) "refrigerator" has no "d" in it.

2) Your fridge (that's where you got the "d" from) should have Mountain Dew as well.

Oh, and get Evan some of those Lifesavers Winto-Green candies. He'll work for 24 hours straight if he has them.

:) Congratulations!

By the way, what does Danga mean? Is it an anagram or someone's name, or what? (Just curious.)

I think you should have run a T1 from office to cage; it'd be cheap, easier to debug/do backups, roll out staging servers, and more reliable for office use. Even interstate T1s are cheap these days.

I considered it, but didn't know inter-state T1 was an option. The cheapest T1 I could find was like $600/month. I could've ran a T1 to my home, but then I'd be paying $600/month for the speed and reliability (which is admittedly excellent) of my home DSL, albeit at 5x the cost of fast DSL.

I wonder how much a 200 mile T1 would be. Of course, then I'd have to pay monthly for it to be brought into our cage, too.

Probably not worth it.
