11/21	Lifehacker's recommending Dreamhost as a personal web hosting service.
	Apart from csua, who do you guys use? --erikred
	\_ What do you want to use it for? Do you need CGI or PHP?  My
	   brother worked for Dreamhost and said they are unethical. In
	   fact, he sued them. This refers to their treatment of customers
	   and employees both. I don't know who  or what "Lifehacker" is,
	   but I'd feel uncomfortable using Dreamhost.

        with his current ISP/web-design firm handling his .com domain far

8/1	Dreamhost has a really generous quota but the service is horrible.
	In addition you can't run any script longer than 30 seconds.
	Otherwise, they will kill ALL of your processes. They were unwilling
	to negociate this. They subscribe hundreds of power hungry users
	on each machine and the load is always consistently above 100,
	and slow. You can't even run sa-learn and grep because their monitor
	script will kill all of your processes. Also they do a reboot
	every other day because they don't know how to keep their system

	they're very restrictive as to the things you can do there. For
	example, they don't allow a script to run for over 30 seconds
	(they have an auto kill script and are unwilling to be flexible,
	so my sa-learn always gets killed). They don't allow X11 forwarding.
	They don't allow many things. What are other hosting alternatives
