I stand corrected. Maybe it was their way of telling me they didn't
want my business. How long have y'all had the contract?

I'm hosted on their hardware. They provided it to me. It's not
terribly high end, but it's worked quite well. Plus, when a piece of
hardware dies, they replace it for free. Of course, a colo does have
added niceties such as UPS, generators, redundant links, etc. Comparing
it simply on a cost basis to RR isn't fair. But even if you do, it's
not -way- different.

My last post on this one too. I just wanted to offer up my experience,
which was I could get residential RR plus a colo for cheaper than what I
could get a static IP through RR.
