We meet on the second and fourth Sundays of each month in Berkeley near the Downtown Berkeley BART station. We hope you join us at Bobby GÔÇÖs Pizzeria.

Web Hosting

As some of you may have noticed our site’s web hosting has had some troubles this month. Many thanks to Jack for working with of Scottsdale, AZ to bring it back online and to Michael for his support and investigation.

While it is by far the largest domain registrar it has had some bad press about it’s SOPA stance, detractors and scrutiny. Wikipedia’s Article gives some background.

I would like to start a discussion about web hosting options people have used. As open source advocates I hope we can find a solid hosting provider that contributes code back to the open source projects they and their customers rely on every day. I know our members have quite a bit of hard won wisdom based on their experiences. Sharing and comparing the services and quality levels of different providers can help us all now and casual readers alike.

We hope you join us for our meetings in Berkeley at Bobby GÔÇÖs Pizzeria. We meet on the second and fourth Sundays of each month.
