Linode Three Year Anniversary and 25% additional RAM

Dear 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=]products[/url] page for more information.

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

Thank you again for your business. Regards,

    It just keeps getting better

    Thank you 8)

    THANKS Caker!!!
    That’s really good news!

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

    Thanks to all the Linode staff!

    This is excellent, again thanks very much!

    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. 🙂

  11. Author Photo

    really cool.

    Thank *you*.

    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

    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?
