Welcome Back!

The new Applefritter server is up. Thanks to everybody for being so patient. The new Server is a 2.4GHz Pentium IV with 2 GB RAM and a 180 GB hard disk, running Slackware Linux 9.1

Compared to the old server, that's about 5x the processing speed, 8x the RAM, and 4x the disk space. And we ditched Red Hat for Slackware. Smile
