Time Saving Linux Desktop Tips?

Just a passing comment about ServerBeach.

They block certain ports (hundreds, not just a few) from your server, and refuse to tell you which ones.

E.g. you can't run a bittorrent tracker on the default port, because they block it.

I would never use them again.

Also, Managed.Com is total ass (most recently, 12+ hours of downtime, due to some random network problem), so don't use them. If anybody knows a good non-managed server host, I'd love to hear about it.
