Thanks for your good work on this. I think getting that additional memory has
significantly expanded what we can do with the Linode site.
One possible good use of this work is to allow us to move the production site
to Linode for some time while the gear at Via.net is repurposed and rebuilt
to something modern.
What you have done seems to allow us to completely reconsider our plans.
I suggest we wait until Rick returns from his travels (and has a decent
interval to unwind/rewind) and learn what he thinks.
It could be that Linode becomes production and the Via.net facilities be used
for experimental/educational purposes and as a backup/mirror to the Linode
