Can anyone suggest a good dial-up ISP in the Denver/Boulder area?

By good I mean:

-Shell account
-Easy going about connect time
-Easy going about weird services running on client systems (meaning that
  1. they don't gripe and 2. they don't have firewall between dial-up
  clients and everything on the internet not running on port 80)
-Procmail based mail delivery
-Of course, Linux based ;-)

Also little things like:

-DNS is up most of the time
-Some reasonable level of upstream redundancy
-Reliable backup power

Can anyone comment on CSD (http://www.csd.net/)?

I hope I'm not calling anyone's baby ugly here, but I have not been 
thrilled with Peak to Peak.

In case anyone ever needs dial-up (or ISDN or DSL) in Austin, go with 
Black Hat Networking (http://blackhat.net).  Don't let the name fool 
you, they are great guys.
