Trevor at work

The first job Trevor had this summer was to make the server you see here in my basement available over the internet so that people could work on it from afar.  I had gotten a permanent ip address from Qwest for this purpose.  Their tech people and web help pages were un-helpful and even discouraging--they said that I couldn't use the IP address for a web/ssh server. They were proven wrong by Trevor who did some port forwarding and now the server, which is on my home LAN, can be accessed via the internet.  Trevor's giving a break to his back in this picture--ergonomics not quite what they ought to be :-)
