I sent and email to JohnCompanies.com, the hosting provider that has that great FreeBSD offer:
I've been meaning to switch my hosting provider to you for some time now, but the thing that's been holding me back is my lack of experience with FreeBSD. I just noticed your Linux server "coming soon" and think that's perfect for me. Could you please notify me when you've got that service up and running? I'd even be willing to be a "beta test" if you need it.
And John responded:
They will probably be ready by the 20th - please email us again on sept 20 and we can get the ball rolling.
Very nice. I may be able to switch everything over at the end of this month. It would be nice to have a working Linux Laptop before hand as a testbed, though... We'll have to see about that ADSL Router. There's an offer I just found here in Spain at TiendaPC.com... it's a bit expensive, but it might be worth it to get rid of these network headaches.
