Amongst the sites we host are official mirrors for some well known open source projects such as Samba, Linux
Documentation Project, and Netfilter to name a few, we also host some small projects and Community Groups
Websites and Emails.
Our servers run Slackware, one of the very original and oldest surviving Linux distributions. Slackware was the
distro that was later used as a base for newer distros, like Red Hat, and Debian, we use it not just because
it's free, but because of its rock solid stability, reliability and performance, also not splitting packages into
several mini packages and staying true to form with upstream (the original software package developers) has
shown very few issues arise, this has proved Slackware highly stable and rock solid for over two decades, with
releases supported for over five years in most cases.
Our key services are in-house in Brisbane, so we are not bogged down in red tape restrictions or delayed access
to shared data centres, or even third party tech support should problems arise. We also have diverse geographically
located tertiary DNS and MX relays - just in case.
The key people running the show have experience dating back to the early 90s in Unix/Linux Systems and Network
Administration for corporate enterprises, Web Hosts and ISP's, but, as you can tell from the shitty
design of our website, none of us are webmasters
Ausics.* services are purely free and non commercial offerings, run and funded by Brisbanite Noel Butler as
a hobbyist service, it remains separate from any commercial services, hosting or otherwise, and is maintained by only
a small group of people who may or may not have a life, so just in case, please be patient if you need to contact
