Hi Jean-Francois,

Before we publish an initial decision, we are reaching out to ask you to please add the following information in the comments section of your published forum post:

  1. If your server is located in your personal home, please specify the name of your Internet Service Provider (ISP).

  2. If your server is located in a Datacenter, please specify the name of the company hosting it.



Hello @Tej081,

This email was sent to all applicants so that we can take this additional information into consideration before publishing an initial and final decision.

You can also inform us whether you would be able to get hardware that meets the minimum published requirements.

Have you read the min. Requirements for HW? You require a GPU. Would be nice to have a fellow Canuck but you must meet the requirements for both bandwidth & HW>
