Hey! I'm a "dialup" user and I run sendmail. I run it so that the mailing
lists I administer are always available. I get wireless service from
ricochet.net and it's "always on", which means that occasionally I get bupkus
(e.g. while they're tuning for deployment of 128K) but mostly it's there.
See http://madison.dynip.com/ if you like. The web page tells what else I run
on this box. 0verkill isn't running but I think everything else is. I hope I
don't get slashdotted because of this.
