Yes it's in the Valley and I do consider locating it there. But I would
like to do the whole "support your local business" thing. And the idea
of being able to get to the server within 10 minutes is appealing.

True, it's one of the reasons I was nitpicking about it. No 24/7 access
eliminates one big advantage.

answer. Thanks for your pointer wrt layer42, I will certainly look into it.
