Awesome news :D But I hope that computer is "Energy efficient" and 
doesn't use to much power.. well OK maybe not. (I also kinda don't care)

I'm guessing that box pulls some power :-D Imagine your power bill after 
running that constantly for a month :o

Thus I doubt "Shared Hosts" could afford to run one, let alone more.

PS: Was the box running CentOS?
