First, I definitely don't mind as it's exactly the kind of response I was 
hoping for. :)

Now, if you don't mind, I'm going to compare you to Thuntek for a moment... 
how much web space do you offer? And what OS runs the shell accounts? What 
are the limits on it? (For reference, I normally just want the ability to 
download large files quickly and then pull them down through my modem. But I 
sometimes like to access newsgroups or run a perl script on a machine with a 
fast connection or build the very occasional C/C++ program, no 'make install' 
needed.) How much space on the shell account?

Thanks in advance. :)
