I actually have a 50% upgraded "Plan 128" that I pay $20 for (upgraded
when they moved to Xen 3.0).

But I run 3 squeak instances + apache, email, ftp, bittorrent
tracker/seeder and probably a bunch more stuff. And I guess I could do
that with a regular 128 minus a squeak or two.

And $20 is about half of 29 euro. But I agree, for the higher level
Hetzner sounds very good - do they use english these days? :)
