Down with Telus!

After some technical hurdles all at this site is back up and running. First off Telus thought it would be cute to start blocking incoming port 80 and a colorful assortment of other ports. At first I rebelled and setup all sorts of workarounds, but in short time I thought it would be even cuter to flip Telus the bird they deserve and switch to Shaw Cable. Shaw is not blocking any ports and with their new extreme package has speeds far exceeding Telus.

Slightly before the whole “down with Telus” fiasco I upgraded the server to PHP5 which broke the web mail interface. After some additional upgrades web mail is now functioning. Time to catch a movie!
