Actually we have svcs.org and .net.
They are now pointing to the svlug server

The svlug server was rebuilt twice in the last two years.
Right now, http://www.svcs.org/~svcs/ works, but I don't know anything about
custom CGIs.
Maybe Heather does.

If your CGI is gone or doesn't work anymore, you could get an ssh account

webmaster at svlug.org

No :-)

If your site takes less than 100MB, it shouldn't be an issue.

We don't have uploads enabled, web pages  are edited in place with vi/rcs or
uploaded with scp.

Heather may be able to provide more help.
