pkl.net his hosted by the machine 'spoon.pkl.net', which is
temporarily being hosted on a stand-in machine. It's currently a Dual Athlon
XP 2000 with 1G RAM and 60G HDD, hosted in MI, US.
When the real server comes back online, it's a Celeron 600
with 640M RAM and 180G HDD space (120G+40G+20G), probably running linux.
Currently housed in a 2U rackmount case.
It started out with 128M RAM and 40G HDD, which soon became
256M/40G, then 256M/80G, then 640M/80G and most recentmy 640M/180G.
Originally, it was co-located with e-promotions.co.uk
But following a re-shuffle with their offices, hosting there was no-longer
available for spoon, so services were transfered to a temporary box in MI,
US, which is currently handling everything spoon handled. The eventual plan
is to get the real spoon over there.
Spoon is admined by Matt and rik. Spoon provides web, e-mail and dns
services for a number of domains as well as providing users with shell
accounts, e-mail services, webmail, etc. It also hosts IRC servers for
UnixNet and LetsBounce.Net
On behalf of
both ourselves and the users of spoon, we'd like to thank Dan
and Jonpaul Sargant at E-Promotions for all their help and hard
work in the past, and Andy for providing (and hosting) the new
Spoon runs various servers, and hosts several personal
websites. A small selection of the personal websites
hosted can be found on the pages
As for the name, 'spoon' came about as a compromise in
naming schemes (it's both 5 letters long and a kitchen thing) between the
two original admins, Matt and Chris. Matt calls all his machines after items
you may find in your kitchen, someday a list might appear.
