I might as well address another issue here.  I dislike our 10mb quota on
our university e-mail accounts.  I wanted to find a web hosting +
shell service that would allow me a great deal of flexibility, and perhaps
also offer quite a bit of space for a low cost.  I'd also like the ability to
compile programs, and arbitrarily run self-authored server code.  I dislike
having my server processes kill'd by disgruntled system administrators
(and they are always disgruntled.)

I'm a little worried about giving my credit card # to some
mom-and-pop-ISP-shell service which could be cracked in the leisure-time
of some 14-year old.  Any recommendations?  I would prefer a shell on a
system running something other than Linux or free version of BSD, also.
