Looks like they have the same problem as site5.  Will they allow me to run 
edge rails under apache 2.2 with mysql 5.0? It doesn't look like it from 
their website.  If I wanted to host some simple kindergarten website it 
looks ok, but I want to exploit the full power of rails, only way I've been 
able to accomplish that is a dedicated host.  For now I think I'll stay at 
redplaid, less headaches  and better support and even better SUSE has a 
built in encrypted filesystem that just works.  It makes my job of securing 
our data much easier.
