I remember my first colocated server rather fondly. It was a 1U Supermicro that had
been decommissioned from my employer after a few years' service. Although it was too
old and slow for my company, the 800MHz CPU, 1GB RAM and 36GB SCSI storage was
perfect for my needs back in 2005. A friend was kind enough to allow me to colocate
the server at his facility for free.
