some fun historical facts:

Ten Forward is still on the same Linode VPS it was provisioned on 3 years ago. The IP remains the same as well. It's system resources were upgraded to the 4GB Linode plan at some point.

We also went through a distro version upgrade from Ubuntu 16.04 LTS to Ubuntu 18.04 LTS while maintaining the same server.
