Hosting Status, and the technical side of things.

I just looked up PebbleVersion.com with Alexa. According to it, Pebble Version is in the top 5% of the internet based on loading speed. What is this site actually hosted on, and where is the actual server? Josiah's basement, with some kind of data-vortex connection? Oh, and the site is in the top 2 million websites (#2,036,854) and in Australia it is #23,489, if you were wondering. The server's good performance has been bugging me for a while .
My signature site. Because ripping off Silver's ideas is fun.
Oh, okay. I was kind of hoping it was the data-vortex connection in your basement . I actually have a web server set up right next to my router. It's a Raspberry Pi. It can just barely run MediaWiki, but only cost US $35. Oh, and I just clicked on your link, and no longer feel any guilt about maybe using your bandwidth to crawl the archives . On that note, if you need a certain page, I will probably have it and all its images and stuff. (But my system only crawls new and updated pages, so I've only downloaded the whole site once, don't worry.) Figured I might as well tell you that!
I mostly keep the offline copy in case that internet shutdown in Egypt happens again in the US. Or the Internet Apocalypse happens. Or a nuke takes out most communication lines. I also keep my computer in a grounded metal box, in case an EMP takes out all electronics. It's one of those things some people think Iran is considering doing, by detonating a nuke in the upper atmosphere and blanketing North America with electromagnetic radiation, causing everything to overload and burn out. Although now I'm getting seriously .
