High five fellow Pine mail client user (alpine here!) I have my own server
co-located at a Tier-1 internet facility. Just done it for years. Lots of
friends have shell accounts on it and it usually hits 5 9's of uptime.
Extra capacity if VCF needed something.
I call an external program to look at HTML links that is a just a script
with a pause, so I can copy and paste the URLs that wrap around the
terminal window 17 times.
Used to run NetBSD on it even, but once we went virtualized at the time
BSD didn't behave well so moved off of it. Kind of miss it though.
