Amex Good, Hostgator Bad

I love my American Express card. I have the platinum one thanks to Todd, which has a lot of cool benefits like being able to go into airport lounges and such.

However, they always seem to freeze my account when I travel. Last year, when I went to Tokyo, Todd and I ate at a baller Kobe beef restaurant in Kobe. We went to pay and both of our Amexes got declined. Ouch.

We called from a payphone across from the restaurant and they finally fixed it.

Linode VPS Hosting, the Best Hosting in the World

On Zach Browne

I just wanted to write a quick review about Linode VPS Hosting. I have never been so pleased in my life with a web host. I've been hosting websites for over fifteen years so I feel like I know what I'm saying. I don't need support or any other frills, all I need is consistency and good documentation, and with Linode not only do they have incredible, step-by-step instructions built on a custom platform, but even on their lowest plan my website has never ran faster and been more reliable. They are nothing short of perfection.

I've tried a number of hosting providers, GoDaddy, 1and1, MediaTemple being the latest and none come close to Linode's high end VPS hosting. In my opinion Linode is the next best thing (in many cases better) than having your own hardware in a collocation center. If you're looking for security, one-click installs for OS's, fast, FAST servers, and the ability to be the root user, then head over and sign up now. Before you do know that this is for technical, Linux beginner to advanced users. They provide the environment with very easy tools to create your VPS, install your OS, & apps, but it is your responsibly to build out the servers. This gives you full flexibility and power.

I boot-strapped a complete Ubuntu 10.10 system and every time I get to use it I'm like a kid in a candy store. The best part was choosing my data center, which happened to be in Dallas where I live. Love it!

They have great support, very reliable and a very stable environment. They have a library of documentation that someone very savvy put together that if directions are followed, works every time. Their support forums are also excellent and a great source of information.

I can't recommend them enough!
