I heard that the servers are located actually in somewhere in Europe. But where? Does someone know?

Thanks.

They were based at the University of Luleå in Sweden, although I believe they have now been moved to a different location in Sweden.

And here's a photo of the servers when they were still in Luleå. (Taken from RE: A.net Headquarters: Let Us See What Its Like! (by RootsAir May 29 2005 in Site Related))

You're right, it's the same island where we crew members can spend a 4 week vacation every year.  Wink

OK...I never knew that. Slackware is very very good Linux OS. I was actually running it at one time and the good thing about it is that its not bloated. You basically can build your own OS with it without adding the extra junk...

I wanted to do a search in the forum before posting, but wouldn't even now where to begin, so I'd like to invite Johan (or anybody else) to kindly repost those pics of Airliners' "state of the art" facilities and "equipment" which he shared when somebody suggested an on-site visit.

Right, I did. That's not quite it....there were a series of pics that Johan put up that were funny as hell. It was a couple of years ago when a guy asked if he could come visit A.net headquarters...

I think the photos are out of date, due to the servers being in a differant location after them being moved.

Regarding the secret lair for the a.net staff. Is that the same one they used during filming of "The Spy Who Shagged Me?"
