Linode Three Year Anniversary and 25% additional RAM

Dear Linode.com Members,

This past Friday (2006-06-16) marked Linode’s three year anniversary, and I just wanted to say, on behalf of Mike and myself, a big old THANKS to all of you for your business and continued support.

As such, I feel the time is right to upgrade the plans to include an additional 25% RAM, retro-active to all existing customers.

Linode 80 becomes [b]Linode 100[/b]
Linode 120 becomes [b]Linode 150[/b]
Linode 160 becomes [b]Linode 200[/b]
Linode 240 becomes [b]Linode 300[/b]
Linode 320 becomes [b]Linode 400[/b]

Check the [url=http://www.linode.com/products/linodes.cfm]products[/url] page for more information.

To take advantage of the new RAM, please reboot your Linode.

Thank you again for your business. Regards,
-Chris

    That’s really good news!

    Superb news! Well worth getting rid of three months uptime 🙂

    Thanks to all the Linode staff!

    Would you mind not upgrading the service so often?

    Some of us are trying [u]not[/u] to reboot unless absolutely necessary.

    😉

    But seriously, thanks man. 8)

    Hmm… I need to check in more often.

    Thanks again, caker!

    Well, there goes my 270 day uptime. 🙂

    really cool.

    Thank *you*.

    Thanks!!

    I hate to look a gift horse in the mouth… 🙂

    But, from ‘free’ output:

    [code]$ free
    total used free shared buffers cached
    Mem: 195300 166840 28460 0 28140 75220
    -/+ buffers/cache: 63480 131820
    Swap: 263160 0 263160
    [/code]

    This used to be a Linode 128, which then became a Linode 160, and is now a Linode 200.

    Wouldn’t 200 MB be 200 * 1024 = 204,800 KB, though?

    (Memory DIMM capacity is measured in units of 1024. 1000 is a HD/media thing.)

    I really need to check these forums more often.
    Just seen this.

    Thanks once again caker!!!

    Linode just keeps getting better and better.

    It is. Your Linode is assigned 200M (200 *1024k). It’s just that the kernel itself takes some of that ram, just like a kernel on physical hardware.

    Ahh! I see. Makes sense; thanks again!!

    OK, im a late comer.

    Happy birthday! And i *really* appreciate the service. A good price, and great uptime.

    Speaking of uptime:

    $ uptime
    01:11:24 up 260 days, 16:11, 1 user, load average: 0.20, 0.61, 0.88

    So, i don’t want to reboot. 😛

    it’s actually a bad thing to have such a long uptime.

    Are you *sure* your box will come back up if a reboot is required?
