I now have CPanel bent to my will. Well, I have it configured the way I want it, anyway.

You all have control over your mu.nu domains. Well, you will once I send you your CPanel logins, anyway. You can also, if you happen to have a .com or .net or some such domain lying about, associate that with your mu.nu account.

You can create subdomains under your main domain too. So, for example, Susie could create everlastingslurpee.practicalpenumbra.mu.nu if she had a mind to.

You can receive email at your domain, and send email from it. I will also be creating a mu.nu email address for everybody. susie at mu dot nu and so on. We don't have any name collisions yet, do we?

Hmm. What else?

Oh yes. Your accounts give you each 500 megabytes of disk space and 5 gigabytes a month of bandwidth. Those limits are really just there in case something goes wrong. Given all the toys you have to play with, you might unintentionally chew up a lot of disk space. Or something. If you really do need more space or bandwidth, that's not a problem, there's plenty to spare. At the moment, no-one is using more than about 50 meg of disk space or 2 gig a month of bandwidth. (Susie is top of the bandwidth users, by the way, followed by Jim, then me, then Helen.)

We have 60 gig of (mirrored!) disk dedicated to the web sites and 500 gig a month of bandwidth, so we can easily accomodate a hundred blogs.*

Speaking of which...

* Unless one of you turns out to be the next Instapundit. I calculated a while back that Glenn must go through about 200 gig of bandwidth a month... Turns out I was within 10% of the actual figure.

Update: Oh, your disk usage won't show up until I've fully integrated your blog with CPanel. I'm doing this one blog at a time, so each blog will be down at some point for about fifteen seconds.

Uh, yeah, JenLab. :) Where did I put that flamethrower?

When you email the passwords, could you put a post on here. I have a strict spam filter and want to make sure it doesn't get sent to the big spam box in the sky.

Fantastico! So, I'm a bandwidth bandit, eh? hehehe

I am 4th in using up bandwidth? Really?

Um....why? I never screw around with my page design, I don't post so many pics, my site design is basic.
