|| Welcome to Your Data Center!
My name is Al Thiel, the owner. I am best described as an Internet Pioneer.
When something new comes out chances are I have already used it, helped
design it or have debugged it in some way. Some things seem too risky and
I just will not trust them. That's just me!
Over the years many companies in New York City and throughout Long Island
have to come to trust me for their networking and security needs. My name
is well known and respected by the engineers and technical staff of companies
like Verizon, AT&T, Qwest, Sprint, Cablevision, Covad, Keyspan,
TELX, XO, Focal/Broadwing, IBM, Cisco, Checkpoint, Netopia,
and many more.
I have worked closely with all of them at one time or another.
Here are some interesting facts about the INTERNET
The INTERNET kicked-off about twenty years ago when the
government wanted to unload an old network it no longer had use for. That
network was called DARPA. After this transition it was known as Arpa-Net.
Only Universities were allowed to access it at first. Much later
came the new access providers (called ISPs). Something was happening,
but no one was quite sure exactly what that was as of yet. All eyes were
on this new and still unexplored technology.
Suddenly, and seemingly out of nowhere the early INTERNET was born!
It was amazing! In the beginning the entire downstate New York region was served
by just a few pioneers who had a vision of what would become the greatest thing
that has ever existed to date. A world where everyone was connected
together! Those early networks were SPEC.NET, LI.NET and PANIX.
I believe only the first of those, SPEC.NET still exists. That,
by the way, is where I started!
Among SPEC.NET's first customers were SPRINT (the phone
company), GANNETT (the media company behind USA Today) and more.
They even connected Cold Spring Harbor Labs.
SPEC.NET is now a part of ACCESS HIGHWAY who I still support and help out from
time-to-time. When things get tough I always come in to rescue them. We are friends for
all time, and I recommend them highly for Dialup in all of Downstate New
York and Nationwide DSL and T1 circuits.
The INTERNET began on 56k and T1(1.5mb) lines and the end-users
like you were connected by dialups on modems at 2400 baud (slow-motion at
best even with text). When 9600 and 56kbps modems came about it was
considerably faster, but still nowhere near the speeds of today, and the
Then it happened all over again! A rebirth! A graphical interface to it
all. PRODIGY introduced a graphical browser using an old Ham Radio
imaging protocol called NAPLPS. Boom! Internet Explorer
and Netscape were born next. From that moment on the
INTERNET was no longer a text-based world!
What unfortunately and unavoidibly came next was SPAM! Where there is
money to be made there will always be those who will go after it, no
matter what laws they violate. I was among the first to begin to block
the various types of SPAM, creating two new rulesets for Sendmail to
stop mail relaying.
Now pretty much all of the email you get is either SPAM or loaded with
viruses, with some fifty percent of the computers on the Internet currently
infected and part of botnets. Those people with better ISPs that care
about their customers fare much better and beat these odds significantly
Here at YOUR DATA CENTER
™ we successfully remove at least 99
of the SPAM/UCE and 99.99 percent of the viruses BEFORE you even
have a chance to get them and become infected with viral garbage!
We take SPAM even more seriously now than in the early days, and
for good reason too. Everything from your bank account to nuclear
power plants is connected to the Internet. We have to protect
this entire infrastructure and preserve what we have before it is
too late and all is gone. It CAN happen! (No, I didn't say Global
