I have started looking for a compleat hosting solutin.  I want shell
(ssh), pop3/smtp, crontab, unlimited processes, bandwidth, size
constrants, webestate, etc.

I have book marks now for about 30 such comapnies and will start
paring them down to what exactly i need soon enough.

What you want in a remote shell is someting that is >= what you have
localy.  If its less than you will be very frustratedl.

Depends on what you're going to use it for but, Facilities; what
programs/services are available to use on the system, eg; mail?
telnet? ftp? nfs? samba client? ssh? (You can maybe install software
that is not there).... Operating System; Linux, BSD, NetBSD, FreeBSD
OSF, VMS, HP-UX, AIX, IRIX, MVS, Tru64, Ultrix, SunOS,....
Speed of connection, Reliability of access/connection, Can you run
'nohup' jobs when you log out, Processor time and power available,...

If it's free you probably don't have too many choices thou` and you
certainly won't get any sort of real security either. I would just
make a list and go through them.

POSIX compliance. But I'll settle for ksh88. Anything else is just a toy.

Please check what I have done so far. I took a lot of peoples
suggestions on everything from the operating system to pricing. Maybe
you can give me some more input

    Hire a proofreader/copy editor.

    Make the text on your site a readable size. A designer who uses
    anything smaller than the default size for the main blocks of
    text, whether with "<Font size=-X>" or (as in your case) fixed
    point sizes in a stylesheet, should be fired. Users set the
    default size in their browsers for what is comfortable to them;
    anything smaller is annoying, if not unreadable.

    Apart from that, and the page with frames, the site looks pretty
    good.

    The shell services you offer are no better than I can get for
    next-to-nothing elsewhere.

The same thing should happen to a designer that doesn't even insure
that his HTML and CSS validate (as these don't).

To be fair though, the page is legible when viewed from a non Windows
machine since they have specified a Windows specific character set
that isn't installed (and therefor not affected by the stylesheet) on
it.

1. [2.5] smp_init 'CPUS done' looks strange

Also, it would make sense in the future if smp_cpus_done actually gets a
value denoting how many cpus are online.
