    Automatically provision dedicated servers... how?

    Centralized management is a must - machines should all be on their own VLAN, and you can forward DHCP off to your management server to choose the prefix from the database.

    Who was your first VPS provider?

    I had my first shell account in 2002, but my first VPS was old pre-BuyVM Frantech back in 2007.

    Remote recording of FM radio

    I'm surprised how clear that signal looks despite you having the hardware AGC enabled. Those spurs are present since the AGC is overdriving the crap out of the poor thing. Best luck I've had is between 9-17dB gain manually configured. Even then my non-TXCO sticks still show tons of spurious...

    List KVM Providers with IPv6 and a few extras

    List KVM Providers with IPv6 and a few extras
