I'm fine (now) but have been ill as have members of my family. I've been busy visiting sick relatives (all who live out of town/state) and have been overwhelmed with my work load other than that. Now I'm trying to sell my home and buy another. Busy, busy, busy.

Anyway, here are the specs on the Dedicated Servers my company sells (leases), as it stands right now:

I am constantly looking for new ways to make these servers more beneficial and cost effective, so things are subject to change. For example, I am looking into having CPU Upgrades (faster speeds) available as well as the possibility of having true Intel (Athlon and Pentium III) CPUs at various speeds. Of course, they would be higher priced because, frankly, they just cost more to begin with. I am striving to keep the costs as low as possible though.

Okay, enough horn tooting about my Dedicated Servers. If anyone is interested, they can visit the web site at http://[b]www.orphanage.com/[/b]. Or, send me private mail here or at hostmaster@orphanage.com if you have more questions.
