    Thanks for sharing. I've been eyeing them for a couple weeks now, quite interested seeing how they continue to perform and grow over the next couple months. Got some plans in the works that they may be a perfect fit for if they can impress me with uptime for a little while.

  • I'm purchasing their 256MB plans, which is quarterly. Maybe another review from me after 3 months :)
