FREE EMAIL ACCOUNT FREE DISK SPACE FREE UNIX ACCOUNT
Sounds unbelievable right? Well it's true. What's the catch?
There is no. Why free accounts? Well as a Computer Science
major planning on gaining some administrative experience, I
felt it would be the best way of attracting users. Any risks
involved? One, the system is going to
be run by me, <Hehehe> an amateur system administrator. I
have no professional experience with UNIX-based systems. But I
know what I am doing to an extent. I'm a 2nd year Computer
Science major at Ramapo College of New Jersey and I've worked on a
UNIX-based system for 2 years and now my new Linux system for a few
months. Obviously I don't know the
in's and out's of it and so that's the risk you have to deal with.
So how much harm could I do? Well I could unintentionally delete
your account with about 10 key strokes. So what do I plan to do
about that? Well daily/weekly backups will need to be performed.
Anything else I need to know? Well you need an internet connection
to reach my system.
Well I have much more to tell you, but let me head into one area
which I need to mention. A free account is great, but if it leads
to abuse there will be problems. I'll tell you know that I reserve
the right to remove your account at any time if I sense abuse. That
means all of Megabytes of your important e-mail will be lost. I'm telling
you this now because I'm sure there will be people on here that know
more about computers than I. But if I sense anything, I have have to
take action in order to prevent everyone else from being screwed. Well
that's about it. If you are still interested and want to know more give me
