This is a guide, and is not a legal document, but it explains the terms of the covenant between user and admin for this service.)
Cenote is a virtual server hosted - using KVM - on a machine containing a couple dozen virtual servers in London, England by Linode.
It runs Debian, Stable branch (Currently codenamed Jessie).
The sysadmin for the system is Nicholas Avenell, with the login Aquarion. Charles Cooke - login ccooke - also has root access in an emergency. They can both be reached via their login name @gkhs.net. Email for that host is not handled by cenote.
Aquarion can be reached on zero seven nine oh nine, 547 990. or - preferably - at firstname.lastname@example.org (This goes though gmail, so can be used to contact me in the case of server being down, though I probably know)
Because Cenote is on a virtual server, the data held on it is not completely private. Users with root access - aquarion & ccooke - can view any data on the server (but, unless requested to, will not do so for anything inside anyone else’s home directory). People with root access to the Xen server that cenote is running on also have access to any data on cenote. I do not believe they will access this information.
There isn’t one, really.
Accounts on cenote are given only to people I know, and for free. I do not take direct payment for cenote services at this point, because I am not prepared to be responsible for your data or connection. I am not reliable. I will help you as best I can, but I have a full time job and part time insanity to cope with, and cenote is primarily a place where I can put things and secondarily a way I can help out people I like.
If I thought I could make a living out of running cenote-like services, I’d do that. This is a free service, and is worth what you pay for it.
If this bothers you, if you feel that you need a higher level of technical support and amount of time than I am able to supply, then I would suggest you go for a system that you pay for. I do not have the mental energy to be that person, sorry.
