Tech Windows Server 2008:

Take Away:

Well, here it is almost 3 months later and I have not been booted, banned, or eighty six-ed from my Windows 2008 Server, because honestly, I did not think I would last 2 weeks.

Well, here it is almost 3 months later and I have not been booted, banned, or eighty six-ed from my Windows 2008 Server, because honestly, I did not think I would last 2 weeks.

Why? you may be asking, well let me clue you in. I was one of a certain amount of Microsoft Partners chosen to receive it free for 1 full year. The only requirements:

REQUIREMENTS:

In order to retain your free VPS provided by Microsoft, you must adhere to the following requirements:

1. Deploy a site on the VPS within 30 days
2. Maintain the site throughout the duration of the 12 months.

No problem!!  But wait - what's a VPS?  and if I ask, will I still get it?

Needless to say, I did not ask. And the company that supplied it did not tell! anything, nor did they ask anything, they must assume that I have knowledge in this area. Why, i do not know, because I was never asked about my experience and I never said that I was.

Will be back soon to continue - need to get the kiddo's off to school.

I am enjoying having and running my own server (even if it is Virtual)that I am really going to hate the day I have to give it up, and I am hoping that the company will give a discount to keep my business, or I find a couple people to share it with, yeah I think sharing it would be best as $99 per month is kinda steep.

I have also been considering building one, I have used my old home systems to run a home server and that ran smoothly.

Well, 'till next time {#geek}
