Free Unix and Linux CDs/DVDs take a look at this...

Postby argcargv » Wed Jul 20, 2005 5:22 pm

Hey guy's I was browsing around the net the other night.. looking for a cheap place to buy some unix/linux cds and came across this particular site... http://labs.hacker.la/ under the "Services" section. I put an order with him for FreeBSD 5.4 and OpenBSD 3.7 and they delivered 2 days later they only charge you for P&P (postage and packaging which was around £1.50 - £2 a cd in a case profesionally done) I just thought some people around here might find a use for this.. if they don't have access to a good connection like me :( anyways..

Regards

Hmm...looks as though your pipex dsl connection is rejecting http requests.
I must admit I am running from my dsl until my own new hosting server comes online in the next few days. Although zero outages so far.

Seems to work fine now, p&p is a bit steep though, works out more expensive than me for more than 1 CD though. Which reminds me, LinuxISO.co.uk is making its first open source donation around September (estimated sum of £30, depending on orders between now and then). Suggestions for placement of this donation are welcome.

I think that was actually a typo, each cd is £1 not £2 problem fixed :)
Anyways.. thanks for the input.

That first post does look rather dishonest. You stumble across your own site and then post some CDs to yourself?

And the pipex DSL line its hosted on appears down again. It isn't on a variable ip is it? I so I think you should drasticaly change the TTL on the DNS record

Ey ey, calm down! There's nothing wrong with mentioning a service that could help people get distros, as yours does, but don't plug it pretending to be 'just some user'. If your service works out well, it'll stand on its own feet. Now let's all have a big bowl of strawberry ice-cream and relax!

Hmm, that's an interesting marketing technique. Most businesses prefer to flatter their potential customers.

Incidentally, this is the Help forum, insults is down the corridor.
