I recently found the "pho" list and I'm very excited about it. It has been a challenge finding the forums where online-music issues are intelligently discussed and reported. Basically what I do now is check slashdot, kuro5hin, advogato, and I get WebNoize updates, read pho, and once in a while look over at fairtunes (they've been making noise lately). If anyone knows of other forums I should be keeping track of, suggest away...

Looks like my certs have picked up. That's cool because the only person I've asked was Seth. Still can't post responses yet but that's okay, I'm fine hanging out with the diaries for now. I've been planning out how to spruce up museworld.com - there isn't much there yet aside from my blog. I still have that fun tip gauge idea but it is dependent on fairtunes making their (already public) artist contribution history available through XML. I'm working on them right now. It'll be a good excuse for me to set up my own servlet/xml environment.

Finally, I am getting tired of having a linux server in my apartment with all the noise and heat. In addition to that I also pay around $50/month for two other domains hosted remotely. I am considering consolidating all my servers into a managed-hosting setup where I have root access. Right now the only option I know of is rackspace.com where bare minimum setup is $260/month or so, which might be manageable, but cheaper would sure be nicer. Looking for recommendations of where else to look.
