Congratulations, you are now a member of Blinkenshell! Your account is activated, and you can start using it right away!

If you are new to shell services, you might want to take a look at the Howtos. There are some articles there about usage of common programs. Also, it might be a good idea to look at the FAQ.

If you have a question about how to use any of the programs or something like that, feel free to ask in the chat (IRC). As a member, you are expected to hang around in the chat from time to time. If there is another user in need of help, or someone trying to sign up, you are very welcome to try and help them. Since you already have an account you probably know how the signup process works and what you can do with the account etc.

If you log in to the signup program you will now have some new options. You can enable auto-voice for IRC and vouch for new members.

Subscribe to Independence's blog with news and updates about the Blinkenshell service: RSS Feed, or just visit the blog and read up on the news once in a while (Highly recommended!)

Accounts will Not be deleted after a period of inactivity. The accounts will stay on the server as long as the server is still running.
