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

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
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?
