The web link in my sig IS this machine, it is not some web hosting service 
running on what could be unknown hardware.  That port number is the only 
port number that is forwarded.  Some of the stuff on that page is getting 
quite long in the tooth, heck there is even a few pix of me there that 
were taken by the woof in 2008 while I was building that garage almost 
single-handedly, but it should give the viewer some idea of what keeps me 
out of the bars.
