Since the simple "" hosting service is being discontinued I am on the look out for some place else to host my stuff, and my wife's stuff.

What follows is my wishlist of things I'd like to be able to do.

If I've missed anything obvious, let me know. If you can recommend a provided that meets my needs (to some degree), the let me know.

You have a top politician apparently standing on a platform that includes the policy  of scrapping government funding of education.

Your students riot when an old guy gets fired for not reporting child abuse.

I have managed 10 miles. That's ~16k.  The Great South Run (10m) is in one month. I do 5k in ~30min and the 16k in ~1h 40m. That kind of running is really hard work for me.

In other news, I made a browser/js/twitter hack that  looks at a tweet that has been chain-retweeted, and works out the graph of people two were involved in the re-tweeting. It works for stuff that's been retweeted up to about 140 times. Any more than that and it hits the rate-limit.

Print Story 5k and more...

I have now run a 5k in under 30 mins. 16k in under 2 hours by October looks feasible now.

If you have an account here, you can see my nearly-finished browser game, by looking for the link in my recent post to The Hole.
