	It was the primary webserver for http://www.yi.org/ , a free
dyanamic DNS provider and domain registration service. It also hosted
several of my friend's websites, running phpbb and movable type. As of a few
weeks ago, the last few straggling websites have been ported over to the new
server (libertas.crackerjack.net) in montral, which incidentally also now
hosts a debian mirror, a CPAN mirror, and http://cpants.perl.org/ .

	I moved the server because wedohosting.com's bandwidth fees were
getting prohibitive (i'm with iweb.ca now).. otherwise I would have been
happy to have it continue running for another few thousand days. :-)
