Very interesting read! I read it about 6 months ago and loved it.

comment Best smartphone for sysadmins?
exactly. I love my touch, and being able to control my home PC with it is even better. I find that I'm rarely somewhere without Wifi, and if I am...I'm probably not going to be able to actually do anything anyways (ie, I'm driving).

Perhaps consider using an SMS gateway. I'm uncer the impression the iPhone will alert you to an incoming text message. You should be able to email your alerts to phonenumber@att.sms.com or something along those lines. Perhaps send two emails, one to the SMS saying "Hey, bad server issues, see email for more details" and a more detailed description going to the email box the user can then check. Not a perfect solution, but it might help.

Chance - Well then...if you don't want to provide your own hardware thats sort of what that $25 a month for ram is for. Try going to a car shop and saying "hey, I need a new alternator put in, can I go buy my own at autozone and have you guys install it?". 99% of the time they'll laugh you out of the shop because they making money raping you own parts costs.

Tom, not sure about their EULA, but that may be against it. I wouldn't suggest publishing that INI just in case.

Very good point on suggesting a Co-location. If you want a badass server, you'll save money as long as your not squeemish about taking care of your own hardware.
