Thank you!

Take a look at the prices at arpnetworks.com/vps.  I'm also able to
negotiate some discount over that in exchange for publicity.  And I'd
rather have a VPS than a hard machine... if one machine goes down, it's
up to me to migrate, and immediately.  If a VPS host goes down, the
hoster has an obligation to launch my VPS on another box.  Just one more
way to keep a good SLA.
