Hi chris

now it is time for a meta remark.
While we are really happy to see this kind of business happening in  
our community,
I think that (for a lot of reasons) your marketing approach does not  
really work well.
So good luck, but pay attention a blog is not a documentation and pay  
attention because
seasidehosting is run by some seaside gurus. So better get friends  
with them ...
