Uhhh oh... I was reading the info on the site and I started to gather
that. I'm downloading ChiliSoft right now. Hope that's not the same deal.

So does this mean that asp is ore of a concept than a language. I guess I
should talk to some of the developpers at work about this one. There has
to be a way.

Buying time.

I'd much rather be creating sites than configuring machines.

What is the average out there for say machines hosting < 500k hits with
very little streaming data. I was looking at some refurbished SUN machines
and they're in the $1k + range w/o any memory.  Wonder how many of the
great sites out there are being hosted on 333Mz machines.
