This server serves servantly nice web pages / email / mailing lists / DNS without overly charging your credit card. Tit-for-Tat principle . Support / donations help lo-res.org to pay for electricity. Dont complain if something does not work as expected. This is not a company and should not be one.
during the last weeks of april 1998 lo-res.org was started on the initiative of x and rost. the following days were characterized by bashing together working machines out of leftover computer parts. some time in may 1998 lo-res.org went online providing all services for itself. since then we have survived the loss of a complete system due to more than one HD crash because of overheating; a power supply because of the rather creative approach of our Kunstwerk neighbours to electricity and the loss of a mainboard to unknown forces. yet we have managed to keep our downtime to a minimum for no other reason than the fun of it all. since then we have managed to even serve some content here and to - slowly - expand our system. If we can survive the Y2K bug count on us to be there in the future.Hihih... the Y2K bug! I am not so sure if so much changed ... HDs still crashed but well, what the heck we are ok... :)
