Work (utiliflex.com) pays good money for hosting a nice server
with external firewall and an external drive at Networks Inc.
After another day of sporadic network outages at our office location,
it's been worth it. Networks has a basic colo area, which I'd enjoy
helping clean-up: but it's stable, has good bandwidth and nice neighbors
in the racks. Most importantly, Jim, Dave and Crew answers the phone/email
and wouldn't let anyone with just the magic password touch our server.
And yes, I use Linode as well, both have their place and features.
