Worlds First Server Hosted on a PSP

ScuttleMonkey posted more than 8 years ago | from the handheld-webservers dept.

Handhelds 19

paper Cut writes to tell us that the guys over at pspproject have a working web server hosted on a PSP. You can view the hosted page but keep in mind that there are still a few little bugs to be worked out. Some users have reported various errors because the HTTP headers are hard coded. The project site has the latest news and updates.

From the site: Status: We have been under a slashdot like effect all day. After being featured on http://www.engadget.com/ [engadget.com] http://www.hackaday.com/ [hackaday.com] http://digg.com/ [digg.com] http://qj.net/ [qj.net] and a bunch of other sites or PSP crashes every couple of minutes.

Well now you get the Real Thing!

It's still running. Things might be different if this article made it on the standard front page.

None of the above

First website hosted on a handheld (1)

First lawsuit against slashdot for burns in a sensitive region near trouser pockets .
I am not sure how sensible it is to promote a web-site running on a PSP on slashdot , but infertility as a result can save you thousands on a vasectomy

sinclair44 (728189) | more than 8 years ago | (#13777365)

Yes... this may be the first server to litterally explode from a slashdotting.

Flame-bait on a whole new level

I can save you thousands on a vasectomy with a wide array of heavy objects.

PM me, and we'll work out the details of payment as suits you.

One PSP to rule them all, one slashdot to find them. One user to browse it all and in the core dump, fry them

Note that the site isn't /.'d right now but then again I'm not sure the little PSP is doing the serving at the moment.

No way. (3, Funny)

Seumas (6865) | more than 8 years ago | (#13777640)

I'm pretty sure the world's first server was not hosted on a PSP, since they didn't exist back then.

I would believe, however, that we're talking about the world's first PSP-hosted server.

DigitalReverend (901909) | more than 8 years ago | (#13778319)

I agree, the grammar in the title is very confusing.

Prove it? (2, Interesting)

DigitalReverend (901909) | more than 8 years ago | (#13778331)

Is there a way to prove that the web page you are looking at is actually being served by a PsP? It could be a hoax, how can one truly tell? To me it's a web page. I could stick it on an Apache server and claim it's running on a gameboy.

Their hit counter shows a little over 31,000 just now; how many hits does it take to slashdot a server?

Prompts a joke(?): How many Microsoft employees does it take to screw in a lightbulb? An infinite number: they won't do it because it's a process that can't be patented:]....

Datacenter Pants (1)

In other news Sony offers pants that hold 25 PSP servers for running a mobile datacenter.

In other news Sony offers asscrack disaster recovery service for the PSP.

Match box sized web server (1)

dow (7718) | more than 8 years ago | (#13780168)

I remember a few years ago that we slashdotted a webserver that was the size of a matchbox. It had a 486 processor, and the site had lots of images of the server. It only had something like a 64k net connection, and it was slow, but that was to be expected as it only had 16mb ram iirc. I cannot find the link after searching slashdot for it, but theres a follow up article from 1999. The old link for that does not work anymore either though.
