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/ Shellsnet is closing down, Blinkenshel will not close down however, we'll just change IRC-networks.

Current events

  • Merry christmas and a happy new year!
  • 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 network hasn't got a website or a name yet)
  • We are accepting new registrations.

Server problems 18-19 December

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, ask Independence for your new password.

Since I had to reinstall some of the system, I decided to also move the shell to another partition and increase the quota for all users from 10 MB to 50 MB (25 MB for homedir and 25 MB for websites).

Not all programs are installed yet, if you miss something just ask Independence to install it again. There might also be some problems with the websites since I have not had the time to fully test them yet.
