Just had +Codero Hosting  suspend the +Bodhi Linux  server because of a vague report from a third party "security" service. Not pleased.

Even once we get this sorted we will likely be moving to a new host once our current year of service is up that we've already paid for.

Anyone have suggestions?

Pretty great compliment I got in a comment recently:

"I have always admired Jeff Hoogland. He is the very embodiment of the open source ethos. He uses something, doesn't like it, so hacks on it until it suits his needs, and then gives back."

Bodhi was the second distro I ran after I got started. Jeff and the Bodhi IRC helped out so much. Glad to see you get a well deserved pat on the back.

Some thoughts on one of +Ubuntu 's upcoming changes.
The latest bit of announced change that has people up in arms in the Linux community is Ubuntu's concept of “Snappy” packages.

Would just like to share how disgusted I am with my experience dealing with Fox Lake Toyota. I am in the market for a new car and Fox Lake advertised a fantastic price on a used Prius V 2012. Even though it was nearly three hours from my front door to Fox Lake Toyota, the price was right and on May 23rd I scheduled to come in Monday the 26th for a test drive with Amanda Astorino. The morning of the 26th I received a confirmation email from Amanda to confirm my appointment. After my wife and I packed up our three month old and drove all the way to Fox Lake, I was informed the Prius I had come to see had been sold two days previously on Saturday the 24th! The solution I was offered? To look at a different car that was $5,000 more and had three times as many miles on it. This is not acceptable. I would not have driven to Fox Lake had I been informed the car I wanted to see was no longer available. Fox Lake Toyota cost my wife and I each six hours worth of time round trip, not to mention the gas and tolls it cost to travel during that time. My clients would have to pay several hundred dollars for this much of my time and I do not appreciate having it wasted by Fox Lake's incompetence. It blows my mind that you are incapable of keeping track of inventory properly. If this is how prospective customers are treated I can not even begin to imagine how poorly Fox Lake Toyota treats people after they collect their money. This experience has left such a bad taste in my mouth that a Prius has gone from my top choice of new car, to being removed from my list entirely. I intend to encourage whoever will listen to avoid Toyota USA dealers when looking for a new car so they can avoid the headache I went through this weekend.
