Going back through things... I've seen some first hand experience with


It seems they do very well about "over selling", depending on memory and
slice sizing a single real machine has between 7 and 24 Virtual Private
servers. A friend of mine has his stuff there and he has 2 VPS, one $70
1024slice and a $20 256slice. He is really happy, versus being on
Keenspot and killing his shared machine there, or being killed there.

And the FAQ answers a lot of questions many have:


Sorry Don, maybe you should use them... instead of that Dallas thingy.
At least maybe mailman would dump on you silently...
