    No, I too was insane enough to run 4 40GB (I think they were 40's) deathstars in RAID0. I survived.

    not everything needs links and associated spyware from 1000 'social' ad networks on the page to be useful. Indeed, if I had my way, none of that crap would be on the internet at all (and I browse with default deny-all for scripts).

    The intranet I operate and developed is based around these simplistic principles.

    I remember the good old tucow days. I'd sort of forgotten about it as new services pop up, but it was great back in the day so I'm sad to see it retired.

    I'm liking this post purely on your avatar and username. Starcontrol is ALSO a blast from the past.

    Finally my plan comes to fruition !
    (Step 1) Sign up to OCAU selecting an alias based on a video gaming reference of the time.
    (Step 2) Wait (albeit only a mere 18+ years!) for the likes to just start rolling in :lol:

    Damn, I haven't been to TUCOWS since at least 1999! So many good memories.

    TUCOWS - The Ultimate Collection Of Windows Software. Very sorry to see it depart. It was my go-to place back in the days of Dialup internet. Back in the time when the best game hints site was happypuppy - and ogrish was a thing.

    A simpler time.. Back when I had my own IPV4 subnet at home. When 10Mbit was awesome-fast, and people actually used email addresses from their ISP.

    Times have changed - and not always for the better.
