# apt-get install ipxe

# update-grub

Because affordable offers are so rare in Belgum and with reports that people in the Netherlands actually see as low as 8ms latency I thought this may be of interest, after inviting Novos to join the forum they did and got right to work with this great offer, here is what they wrote:

Looking for a VPS in the beautiful city of Antwerp? Then look no further. We are one of the most affordable VPS providers in Belgium and that says a lot because there are not many players here compared to other E...

I find installing Debian via VNC a time consuming process. Luckily there is an option to install Debian "unattended". You can do so using a preseed file to feed the selections and able to include advanced script customizations. If you come from CentOs World, then think of it as a kickstart file.

This is not new information, I just wanted the wonderful LES community to be aware of this great time saver.

The official source is at https://wiki.debian.org/DebianInstaller/Preseed and a long fi...

@Jarland from MXroute posted an offer for the lowEndSpirit folks a few days ago in a comment on the forum that was not really an offer post.

It seemed too good of an offer to miss so I am making this post in the hope that more people get to see it.

In the words of MXroute

Who are we?

MXroute is an email provider that seeks to challenge the standards of the industry in pricing strategy and outbound delivery consistency. Inbound is far from ignored, but I always say that anyone can run...
