As it happens, a rev B iMac and a six and a half year old laptop tend to bog down a bit when they’re bombarded with thousands of server requests from the internet. The problem has not been the traffic, but staying useful as a family room computer. Rest assured, you have not missed out on a quantum leap in popularity of this site. A large majority of the hits (say 998 of the 1000 or so a day) were fishing expeditions for vulnerabilities.
Anyway, the great home server initiative has come to an end… for now. I’m still ironing out the apparent kinks in my URL redirection strategy, but the old URLs should work for the foreseeable future.
I know it’s a load off your mind.
