[b]Retro-active to all Existing Customers NOW[/b]
Existing customers should notice the disk space already allocated to their account.
Use the following list to determine how much space was added to your account:
Linode 64 – An additional 1024 MB (1 GB)
Linode 128 – An additional 2048 MB (2 GB)
Linode 192 – An additional 3072 MB (3 GB)
To take advantage of the extra space, you have a choice of either:
[list][*] [b]Resizing your existing filesystem to occupy the new space[/b][list][*] Shutdown your Linode
[*] Members -> Disk Images -> Click on your root filesystem -> Enter in new size, and Save Changes
[*] Boot your Linode
[*] [b]Creating new empty disk images[/b]
[list][*]Members -> Disk Images, scroll down to “Create an Empty Disk Image”
[*] Enter a label (for example: “disk2”)
[*] Enter in the size (use the “Storage Summary” box in the upper-right corner)
[*] Choose “ext3” for filesystem type, and Create Disk
[*] Members -> Configurations -> Click on your config
[*] Add your new “disk2” to an open /dev/ubd? slot. Save
[*] Reboot your Linode
[*] Log into your Linode, and as root: “mount /dev/ubd[insert device letter here] /path/to/mountpoint” where path/to/mountpoint is an existing directory
[*] [b]Deploying more Linux Installations[/b][list][*]Why, just use the Distro Wizard! Experiment with a new distro or something 🙂 Speaking of which, a Gentoo distro will be available soon.[/list]
Thank you for your business! Enjoy!
That’ll come in very handy! Thanks 🙂
Very nice surprise.

I agree. I have been a customer for about a month now and bugged them about many things by now. Always professional, friendly and timely support. And an excellent product, too 🙂
Yes.. Linode > *
I run a free shells provider from my linode, and several people
have asked me how much it’s costing me! They are quite surprised
when I tell them…. A few of them have told me they’re considering
getting accounts here too, given linode.com’s prices 🙂

In other words you are begging to be abused, hacked and DoS’ed. I dearly hope this is in some violation of the TOS.
A long time ago, I ran macos on my home machine.
I diddn’t have access to any of the wonderful world of *nix by
virtue of my pretty restricted access to computers in general.
In those times I was reliant on the goodwill of a few kind people
who gave me free shell accounts in order to learn how to use linux,
to learn various programming languages, and most usefully,
Now that I’m in a position of having my own server (albeit a virtual
one) I think it just that I should pay back the net community for
what it gave me for free, by giving something back.
This doesn’t mean anyone can get an account on my system.
I vet accounts, and I’m known to call people, internationally if necessary,
to verify their identities before granting them accounts.
(yes I shamelessly ripped that idea from caker’s policy)
I could explain in a long flood of text why I’m not as vulnurable
as you think I am, but that’d take ages and I’m busy. 🙂
Suffice it to say I screen applications carefully, I monitor my users,
I configure the system pretty tightly, I run quite a bit of security
software (like portsentryd), I have multiple addresses (4) and can
change the DNS for any of them to map to localhost in case I get
DOSed, etc, etc….
I have a plan to beef up security in future by repartitioning, running
debian/gentoo, and reconfiguring my system again from scratch,
and generally building myself a fortress before I let users near it 🙂
You work on your linode, I’ll work on mine 🙂
