Get on My Shirt and I’ll Expose Your Business

charnell4I’m launching a new feature on this blog to give your business some added exposure. It’s called “You’re on My Shirt”.

Every week I will post a picture of me wearing a client’s branded T-shirt along with a description of your business and a friendly link to your site or blog.

So what’s the catch, you ask? Nothing really. To be featured, all you have to do is be a current ServerBeach client and mail or courier me a T-shirt with your company name on the front and/or back… and that’s it! BTW, size MEDIUM please.

The ServerBeach Blog has a loyal following and is viewed daily by many online users. This new feature is a way for us to extend some love to our clients and get you some more free exposure.

To get on my shirt, fire off an e-mail to me and I’ll reply back right away with some details and questions about your business, as well as an address to send me your T-shirt.

Be the first one to get featured!

Hosting Providers, We Challenge You to a Race

uncle_sam_350w

PEER 1 President, Fabio Banducci

As many of you know, our parent company PEER 1 participated in the 24 Hours of Lemons endurance race in Kershaw, South Carolina last year. We will be participating in this event again this year at the No Problem Raceway in Belle Rose Louisiana, June 6th to 7th.

This year, PEER 1 is planning something a little different. This year, we are challenging all hosting providers in the state of Texas. Yes, you read correctly: WE WANT YOU!

Are you up to the challenge? Do you have what it takes to participate against PEER 1 in the 24 Hours of Lemons race? Join us June 5th  and 6th at the No Problem Raceway in Belle Rose, Louisiana and let’s find out! So what is 24 Hours of Lemons?

Nasty. Brutish. Not Short Enough.

The crowd. The spectacle. The pall of blue smoke and roasted clutch discs. In all motorsport, no event captures the universal human need to whale on old crapcans and hoover down greasy barbecue like the 24 Hours of LeMons.

Each LeMons race is for cars purchased, fixed up, and track-prepped for a total of 500 dollars or less. But before reaching the grid, you’ll have to survive trials like the Personal-Injury-Lawyer Anti-Slalom, the Marxist-Valet Parking Challenge, and the Wide Open Throttle Rodthrowapalooza. Twelve hours into the race, the car voted People’s Choice is called in and awarded a cash prize; simultaneously, the car voted People’s Curse is called in and summarily destroyed. At the end of 24 hours, a gala awards ceremony plies the survivors with trophies, plaques, and four-figure purses in canvas bags full of nickels. What’s not to like?” — 24 Hours of Lemons website

Windows – Everything You Need To Know

bsod

We’re all familiar with the BSD (Blue Screen of Death) when it comes to Windows. Perhaps you’ve experienced the ever so popular “missing dll errors”, spyware, or the time consuming defragging.

Some feel that Windows just offers a little too much, leaving your system feeling bloated and sluggish. We all want our computers to run as fast as possible and while there is hardware out there that is available to accomplish this, you won’t get it without a not-so-pretty price tag.

Lifehacker has posted a great article that provides information on how to get the most out of the above mentioned situations, as well as dual booting your computer, automatically backing up your hard drive, making the most out of dual monitors, and much more. You can read more over at the Lifehacker site here: http://lifehacker.com/5118066/everything-you-need-to-know-how-to-do-in-windows

Happy Holidays!

On behalf of PEER 1 and ServerBeach, we’d like to remind you to be good throughout the year or else…

(A big thanks to Travis, one of our developers for PEER1 and owner/operator of Dark Design Pictures. !)

Ubuntu and more at The Beach

ServerBeach is happy to announce a couple of new offerings recently made available to all current customers as well as new. We’ve listened, heard, and have taken action. A new Operating System is now available at ServerBeach – Ubuntu Server (v8.04). This new offering is available on all Category 3 and Category 5 servers.

The Ubuntu Server Edition – built on the solid foundation of Debian which is known for its robust server installations — has a strong heritage for reliable performance and predictable evolution.

The Ubuntu Server Edition can become the backbone of many of the services that a typical business needs to run to be successful.

What else is new? We’ve made our firewall offering available in all of our data centers!

Protect yourself against predators, worms and other malicious activity with the mGuard Smart by Inominate, a fully self-managed hardware firewall that you take control over via an easy-to-use web interface.

Definitely keep your eyes open, we’ve got some more great products to come!
