How does the -- PORT
   (is there supposed to be a space between -- PORT ?)
affect the image if in a Workspace you have already done
WAKom startOn: 8888?

Do you still supply the port as above?
-- PORT 8888

Webfaction has several plans at various mb of RAM allowed.
Does passing -mmap 40mb constrain the image to 40mb?
Would it crash if it attempted to go higher?

I'm pretty sure they don't have or allow VNC. Everything would have to 
be done via web browser or command line (ssh).

Are there any problems running a development style image, squeak-dev 
with Seaside and running it headless? Other than extra memory and space 

Eventually I would love to have a kernel image with current Seaside/Pier 
loaded, and do OmniBrowser and Monticello via web browser.

Thanks. And thanks to Isaiah also for his reply.
