Forwarded from: Brooks Isoldi <bisoldiat_private> The Intelligence Network site (www.intellnet.org) is finally back up and running. We hope to have updated news posted to the site tomorrow (Wednesday) and to resume our regular operations. We are currently in the process of developing a ton of new features for the site including a face lift and an overhaul of our backend infrastructure as well as a lot of ideas to make the dissemination of the information each person wants much easier. We are trying to harness the archive power that the site has (currently we have 14,372 news articles archived on the server) and allow users to access the materials they want as quickly and easily as possible. As many of you know, we had a problem with hosting a little while ago. To my utter surprise, we were flooded with offers of help, ideas, suggestions and general inquiries. I guess it took a downturn for me to realize there are loyal fans out there :-). Anyway, the creators of Aimster, the popular filesharing client now known as Madster www.madster.com (the beautiful Aimee and her father), came through with an offer to host my server for free of charge, so we went through the long process of getting our server out of its old colo and into its new one. Words cannot express out gratitude towards them. During this process of finding a new host and moving the server to their facility, we did not get much in the way of donations, however there were a good many people who expressed the willingness to donate. I have never looked for handouts, but it would greatly benefit my site (and the intelligence community indirectly) if we were able to recieve some money. Every bit helps. I will be putting up a link to paypal for the donation with a breakdown of exactly what we want to purchase as well as a link to buy IntellNet t-shirts that I have. If there is anyone who cannot wait to donate, feel free to email me bisoldiat_private <grin>. All in all, having to manage the acquisition of a new colo facility and managing the move of our server was a worthwhile experience. It was definitely not something that your average college student goes through on a daily basis, but I am glad to be of service to the intell community and I am glad to be of help and of use to everyone out there who makes use of the site. Thank you.
