Welcome to Blinkenshell!

This is a free shell account service. I provide shell access to my server for free if you can prove yourself as a worthy user of the service.

The service is intended to create a community with users who are curious and likes to learn new stuff about computers in general. This is a great place to be if you are looking for somewhere to learn about ["UNIX"], learn about programming/scripting or if you just want to use ["IRC"].

The server is located in my basement and is not intended for any commercial use. It doesn't cost anything to use and does not provide any guaranteed uptime, availability, quality of service or any warranty.

This website is based on MoinMoin wiki. You can edit the contents of the pages by clicking on "Log in" on the top of the page and then signing up for an account. By creating an account on this webpage you are Not automatically registered for the shell service. Read ["Info/Signup"] for signup instructions for the shell service.

We are now affilated with Shellsnet! http://www.shellsnet.org/

Server problems!

I'm experiencing some problems with the server. It started out with some minor glitch with version incompatabilities between different versions of glibc, and has now escalated and made the whole system unable to start any programs at all, you can not even log in to the system.

Since the system is so badly broken, I decided to replace the whole vserver guest system (like a big chroot) with a new one. All users files are however safe and will be waiting for their users on the new guest system.

I don't have any ETA for when everything will be up and running as usual, but I'm working on fixing the system right now. I'm also taking this opportunity to make some upgrades of lowlevel software and file system changes that I've been waiting to make.

I've been working hard all night and I'm happy to say that everything seems to be working again. However, all passwords are reset. Come to our IRC-channel or send an email and I'll send you your new password!

Current events

  • There is currently some problems with the shell box, no one will be able to log in. Stay tuned for more info...
  • Blinkenshell is about to move to a new IRC-network because shellsnet is closing down. There is a new channel called #blinkenshell that's available on the IRC-servers irc.systemshell.net and irc.overloadx.net The new doesn't got a website or a name yet, but work is going on.
  • Everything is working fine, we are accepting new registrations.
