Hi everybody,

Over the past few months, the PowerDNS Wiki and Subversion servers had a
hard time and were no longer able to keep up with the growing amounts of
traffic.  Since these servers also routed my personal email, I had little
choice but move the flood of spam to gmail.  But no more!

We acquired a lovely Dell PowerEdge R200, and found pioneering PowerDNS user
XS4ALL willing to host it!  This explains the xs4all logos on
wiki.powerdns.com and svn.powerdns.com ;-)

XS4ALL is what I'd like to call an 'old school internet service provider' -
which is quite literally true since they were (almost) the first here in The
Netherlands.  Racking up xs.powerdns.com went without a hitch.  For some
reason, whenever I have to rack up a server, it turns out the wrong rails
have been agreed upon, or the power is wrong or too much, or the IP
addresses have not been arranged.

But this time round, we were done in 5 minutes. When I discovered a few days
later that no IPv6 was provisioned, this was fixed within an hour.  On

XS4ALL also was the 'launching customer' of the PowerDNS Recursor, funding
the development process and field testing it.

So many thanks to them for hosting xs.powerdns.com!
