in reply to [OT] Heads-up on broadband providers blocking port 25

Since we're clearly marked off topic, I'll put in a plug for Speakeasy DSL, which I've used for about 5 years now. Not only do they have great quality (uptime, service), they actually understand that users might want to run servers on an ADSL line and have Terms of Service that are compatible. Want to have reverse DNS mapping to your static IP? They even do that.

If you're inclined to give them a try (in a way that gets me a referral credit), please use this URL: Otherwise, use the one above.

    Seconding the Speakeasy recommendation. I dropped them for (*blech*) Comcast only because they weren't able to get me anything faster than IDSL and I needed more bandwidth than that. The support people at least have heard of OSen other than Wintendo and were pretty helpful and timely. If only they weren't dependent on the whims of the RBOC to provide ADSL through fiber to the SLC . . .
