If you got here expecting to arrive at the origami site or one of the other sites, they are temporarily offline while DofT does some maintainance on his servers. And by maintanance, we mean.. well... He got it in his head to go reengineer all the backend services. It's mostly complete, but a side effect of the change is that the cloud server is all new and that's where those sites were being hosted from. We promise they'll be back soon! Thank you for your patience.
Welcome! Thank's for visiting! If you're not interested in all the boring introduction stuff, perhaps skip down a bit and and visit one of the links below.
DofTNet Enterprises is technically a company, which is to say that there is official business registration paperwork on file in various government offices somewhere.
DofT first started DofTNet Enterprises back in 2004. Originally it was intended to be so he could sell things on his websites, and doing things like that as a company made some things a little more convenient. At the time, he was also involved in an IT consulting company that he and a few friends had started. All of the DofTNet websites were hosted on the other companies servers and the short version of the story is that when that company folded, DofT just kept maintaining the servers.
More recently, back in August of 2015, after many moves and upgrades and slowlu consolidating multiple servers into one single server hosting several virtualized versions of the original servers, and after DofT had already ordered a shiny new server to replace it, one of the hard drives in Mr. Overlord (as the server was called at that time) killed itself. Unfortunately, the replacement hadn't arrived yet and there was very little hope of any sort of recovery.
Once the new server arrived, DofT set about trying to rebuild. Of course, times have changed, and now that all of DofTNet was a smouldering heap of twisted metal and silicon, it seemed like a good time to try new things. All the old stuff is gone and now DofT is slowly building up new stuff.
DofTNet Enterprises, as it exists now, is mostly a collection of personal projects disguised as a business. This confuses a lot of businesses that try to offer business services to DofT, but right now the goal isn't to be the next Facebook or anything. DofT doesn't really have customers, but he's not opposed to doing an origami project for you or consult on some computer related thing. If you're interested in such a thing, Facebook is the best place to contact him.
These are some of the things:
As noted above, the hosted sites are not available while DofT is doing is mucking about in the server room... They'll be back soon.
The hosted sites are sites created by users on the Cloud server - mostly by DofT at the moemnt. It's very much a work in progress so don't expect to be impressed to much just yet.
There are a lot of links still out there to the old DofTNet websites, and to the extent possible, the server has been set up to point those links to possibly appropriate content on the new site so people don't have to hunt around for the content they're expecting to find.
If you want a cloud account, an email account which includes cloud access, already have an account but need help, or otherwise just want to get in touch with me, right now the best place is Facebook.
