    thats because our host has no record in the DNS of a ww sub-domain :) all subdomains which arnt defined point to them

    eg. http://lookatthis.bit-tech.net

    Just a friendly reminder

    I'm sure bit-tech won't mind since Nox ordo, the business whose page being displayed, is the host for bit-tech.net

    My stupid advice nobody wants to hear: When you visit a page like bit-tech's often, you may want to make an effort to look for ads and click them, so you see who all supports bit-tech. Those are the businesses you might want to support yourself, because it will eventually get back to bit-tech one way or the other. (I'm assuming)

    Disclaimer: I am not affiliated with bit-tech in any way, shape, or form, other than the fact that I am a regular visitor and forum member. I'm not spamming people to click my link, or make me money.

    EDIT: I'm old and slow! I was thinking I would be the first to post! dang you faster bit-techers! now go visit my physics thread! :p

    OneSeventeen has a very good point. I more than most know what it's like to try and find and maintain a good deal on hosting, and then on top of that find a sponsor so you can actually afford to put stuff on the account.
    I think MO for eg will be thanking the day they got on board ;) but were probably apprehensive to start.

    And Digital Fodder. Did you not notice the huge 'hosted by Nox Ordo' bit emblazoned across the banner on the front page?

    Well, at least I know where this came from now. I was a little curious.

    Digital Fodder, I don't know what your real name is, and truthfully, I don't really care. I don't know how old you are, I don't really know anything about you except what I've seen from your interaction with me.

    I host this site out of my kindness, I happen to like the people running this site (Moose/KNA/RTT/everybody else). I met them, because BT was slashdotted and I helped out by hosting their images, maintaining nearly 100mbit/s in traffic. I now host BT for free, BT is paying me absolutely nothing for my services, beyond the little Nox Ordo they have in the BT images on the front page (go look, http://www.bit-tech.net). I suggest next time you are going to make a completely ass out of yourself, you get your facts straight. You sir, are a VERY insulting ignorant ass, and as far as I am concerned, you aren't worthy of even viewing the site, let alone posting to the forums. This isn't my site, I have no control over things here, so I won't be banning you or anything of the sort, nor will I ask the BT people to do so. I will, however, warn you, that in the future if you EVER insult me again like that, I will be permanently firewalling your IP(s) directly at the uplink and preventing any more contact from you. When people who run other sites on my servers are getting emails such as the one I posted, and emailing me asking why they got insulted and cursed, it _really_ bothers me.
