Surfski.info Server Upgrade - Done & Dusted

Tuesday, 08 April 2008 16:36 |

After some late nights and many emails to our service provider we are glad to report that Surfski.Info is up and running on our very own managed server. We were basically given final notice last week by our service provider to vacate the shared server or be shut down. We had outgrown the neighbourhood and were taking up more resources than was permissible.

With the new server we have plenty room to grow, in fact we are only taking up a third of the space that we are paying for. So if you would like to make use of that space to host your website (and help out with the cost of hosting surfski.info) then please let us know by emailing us on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. If you don't have a website yet then this is the ideal opportunity for us to help you build one.

Well, it seems there's plenty of "soul" down under - here's news of another timber-ski project, this time by Stephen Kelly of Brisbane, Australia.
