since I'm using OpenBSD (starting august 2003), I'ven been wondering if
the rack shown under  is owned by Theo and how it is hosted. Looks
like a whole farm of compile machines. I'd really like to know more
about them. Does anyone know details?
Then I came across the domain dispute under  and started wondering
again what kind of stuff Theo uses for cooking his OS. There Theo said:
"[...] my 128Kbit ISDN line [...]"
Which makes me believe he's hosting all these servers with a 128k ISDN line. The next thing which made me wonder what it's all about is this newspost  of theo
posted sometime back in 1996, where he seems to be running a Sun behind
his ISDN for all his services. A zone transfer of his domain theos.com
showed there's this box zeus.theos.com which does all the work. Is this
the ominous Sun?
When running a benchmark against the coremail html file the ping of
zeus dramatically increases. Either he's really using a ISDN line, or
the Sun he is using isn't standing the load well (stopped the test
after a min).
This at least proved, that he's either behind ISDN or using a Sun dated
But what is fact and what's just a false assumption? Please, anyone,
tell me, I'm interested in this since a couple of months.
Of course I've checked Google and the FAQ ;-)
