Gandi.net US​ newsletter: [GANDI] IRC, PVLAN, and other delightfully nerdy acronyms
---------------------------------------------------------------
SUMMARY: AT A GLANCE
---------------------------------------------------------------
1. /join #gandi on IRC
2. Private networks on our Cloud Infrastructure
3. February new gTLD release calendar
4. Promo roundup
---------------------------------------------------------------
It's the dead of winter in the Northern Hemisphere, and many of you are
suffering through cold and snows, looking for something to brighten your
days. Actually, to be honest, we wouldn't know anything about that,
since we're penning these lines in the heart of 73-degree San Francisco,
where the constant jackhammering outside our office has driven us to the
brink of giving it all up for a cabin in the woods.

Fortunately for you, we're afraid of bears, and so we shall press on to
tell you about the latest happenings at Gandi, including the grand
opening of our IRC channel, our new private VLAN tools, and no less than
19 promotions on domain names.

We've also lowered prices on .IO domains, rolled out privacy protection
on .XYZ, released dozens of new TLDs, and are simply jackhammeringly
feverish with excitement about next month!

------------------------------------------------
1. /join #gandi on IRC
------------------------------------------------
Our IRC channel, which has existed for years but has been private until
now, is now open to the public.

Most of the activity in this channel is some combination of helpful
advice and witty banter, and only a little bit of it is about our ties
to the Lizard People.
You can find us in #gandi on Freenode:

------------------------------------------------
2. Private networks on our Cloud Infrastructure
------------------------------------------------
Our Private VLAN system has just received a major upgrade.
Specifically, we simplified usability by adding the option to
automatically configure your servers, either via the admin panel
in your Gandi account or with the blossoming Gandi CLI. For
details, check out our post on the upgrade below (tutorials included!):

That's all for February. We'll see you again next month for another
edition of this collaboratively-composed Mad Libs-style monstrosity of a
composition we call a newsletter in another 28 days, unless, of course,
we get stuck in a Groundhog-Day-esque time loop and have to re-live this
one over and over and over...

In the meantime, send us your quips, quids, and best bourbon cocktail

Roses are red,
violets are blue,
February is fine,
but in March things are going to get so crazy that we can't even.
