So does the whole of sysadmin. This was the email I was supposed to send
before I left on vacation (sorry):

"Sysadmin suggests that we commit to an offer in the next two weeks so
evolt.org as a whole can focus on fundraising and revenue-generating
efforts, which will require huge effort and coordination from all
groups. Syadmin advises evolt.org take Ron Dorman up on his offer, based
on CSI's available facilities, current growth, and offered support. Ron
Dorman is an invested member in the community and has a personal interest
in offering evolt.org everything it needs to run successfully and
smoothly. In addition, should we ever need physical access to the servers,
we could surely gain it on shorter notice than with a large hosting
company. He has about 8 hours of battery backup power *and* is wired to a
short-term electical generator. CSI's connection is redundant in every
location and is under ground for almost the entire 200 feet between CSI
and the local CO. Also, Ron has expressed his willingness to work with us
financially until we get sufficient funding in place. This is something we
will probably not get anywhere else. More info about CSI and Ron's offer
can be found
