who offers cheap (personal) 1U colo?
every time i tell somebody that they shouldn't bother trying to send e-mail from their dsl or cablemodem ip address due to the unlikelihood of a well staffed and well trained and empowered abuse desk defending the reputation of that address space, i also say "buy a 1U and put it someplace with a real abuse desk, and use your dsl or cablemodem to tunnel to that place." and then a few questions come in -- "where can i put a 1U for the $50/month you claim is possible?" so as a public service i've decided to gather some answers to that question and put them on the web someplace so i can refer folks to it when i'm asked. if you know of a place that offers 1U/month for $50/month with some kind of bandwidth limitations (moderate peak, low average), and a strong abuse desk (including repossessing the 1U server upon proof of abuse or neglect), please send me e-mail with a url and some details. i'll summarize it all online and report the aggregation URL back to this mailing list.
