The existing rothwell.us hosting situation is getting to be slower and slower:
$ ping www.rothwell.usI just signed up for a new dedicated server at ServerPronto, which is also the new home of zappe.us. In fact, it was Zappe who referred me there.

... performance is a little better at ServerPronto, it seems. They indicate that each server is connected via 100MBit ethernet to their redundant peered internet connections. That's certainly a step up from a 10mbit hub and two pigeons.
