[REBOL] Re: How to find an Internet provider with Rebol CGI capabilities?

From: ale870::gmail at: 19-Jul-2007 7:37

Hello Brian, I think we can do something together, for at least two reasons: 1) I think that the people that try to make something as independent developers, or making an independent business, etc... should be promoted. 2) I hope I can help you to test the service, to let you supply a better service, etc... Since, at the beginning, I will not need of a big server (I'm creating the game in my free time, and meanwhile, I have a family, an Italian blog site devoted to Rebol, I have my standard job (I'm an analyst/programmer, and system administrator in a big company), etc...), I think your solution could fit my needs. If for you is ok, I wish to get an account for one month, just to check everything (I always used Rebol as standalone system, but I never used to create CGI ), and if it will be right, I can pay a fee to you (because I like the idea to pay someone to help his job). But I cannot pay too much (I'm a "normal" man, not a "rich man"!!), so please, give me a cheap solution. In the future, if my game will be completed, so when I will need of real server power, server resources, we could recheck again the fee to adjust it to the new requirements. Is it good for you?
