Welcome to our little corner of the Internet! This website is run on a Gentoo Linux system out of our home in Gilbert, Arizona. This same computer that provides this website also acts as our mail server and instant messaging server as well, it also acts as a firewall to protect our home network from the rest of the Internet.
