xdal.org was created in 1999 after I realized that I wanted a permanent
place online for all my needs and I could create that environment
easier and cheaper that I would find it (if I could find it). I had
some initial hardware that I had installed in my house as a simple
linux router to allow me to have my cable modem installed in the
basement so I could easily move my desktop computer wherever I wanted.
xdal.org is run out of my basement as a service for myself, my friends
and family. It is wholly supported by donations of hardware and
technical services from them. Some hardware needs to be purchased
separately and comes out of my pocket.
If you are involved with xdal.org and would like to make a donation to
the hardware fund, that would be greatly appreciated. You can do so
here with PayPal.
xdal.org has come a long way. It started as a Pentium 120 with 64mb or
ram, a 3Gb disk, two ethernet cards, an 8 port hub and a cable modem.
Today, xdal.org is much more powerful. James donated a PII motherboard
and case early on which were only replaced in the summer of 2003.
That's when I went to an auction for a computer company that went
under. I acquired a great deal of hardware to put together a new
desktop machine and xdal.org is now a PIII 450 with 386Mb of ram and a
total of 88.6Gb of disk space. All of this is protected with an APC UPS.
xdal.org has come even further than that. It has been upgraded several
times since 2003. Here are the current specs:
Here is a list of the things I'm looking to acquire, and what I need them
