Eclair rootfs Build Service Moved (to subdomain)

Just a quick update: the XDANDROID Eclair rootfs Build Service has moved to a subdomain on the same server. It’s a better solution than sticking it in a userdir. Previous links will be redirected to the new location, so you don’t need to do anything.

Also, for the record: I cannot guarantee that the oldest builds in that list will remain for any specific amount of time. As the server continues to build from the git repository, those images will pile up and I’ll probably have to clean some out eventually.

As one final aside, I’d like to plug the VPS provider I use to run this build service (and all the other services the machine hosts): Linode. It’s a very popular and extremely high-quality host. The prices are reasonable, the staff are friendly and almost always available, and they have near-perfect reliability. If you need a host and one of their datacenters (Fremont, Dallas, Atlanta, New Jersey, or London) is a good location for you, check them out.
