Even if we had to pay some, I'm sure it'd be cheaper than what Linode costs.
Hmmm... not a bad idea. I might look into this, but this would mean a hostname other than "" which kinda sucks. So far, the Linode setup has actually been working surprisingly well. We have five simultaneous users on earlier and it didn't hiccup once. I'm tempted to bump it to 7 or 9 allowed users to see where we hit a limit.
