It was fun to meet a few more local bsd'ers.

At the meeting, I also mentioned the chat server called 'lily'.  If
anyone wants an account on lily, they can have one by checking out:


I don't think I mentioned at the meeting, but this server is also
running on a FreeBSD system (not that there is any way for you to
tell).  It used to run on a NeXTstation, and then I switched it to
FreeBSD.  This is just a fun side-project of mine.  One of the goals
was to see how long I could keep a system up-and-running with a
production service on it.

The three longest runs for the lily server are:

  373 days 10 hours, ended at 12:40pm on Jul 24, 2000  (long power outage)
  599 days 14 hours, ended at 18:52pm on Sep  6, 2002  (UPS failure)
  497 days 18 hours, ended at 18:36pm on Apr 28, 2004  (disk failure)
