I recommend draemhost, too. Been using them for ages for registration, hosting and email. They're cheap and helpful. They don't screw you for late fees or sell your domains if you mess up. The shared hosting isn't screaming fast but apparently you can easily upgrade to shared or dedicated VMS - though I haven't seen the need.

dude, you're a fucking moron.

moc generates C++ code. gcc generates .as code. they both generate code, and they both use that code as an intermediate form.
mov "converts the output output of the previous step to another logically equivalent form". as does gcc.
with moc, you use a tool (gcc) to include the intermediate form in your final output. with gcc, you use a tool (as/ld) to include the intermediate form in your final output.

i'm sorry, but most compilers use another language as an intermediate representation. gcc uses several of these, including a couple of abstract trees and platform-specific assembly. c-front used C, as did ghc. moc uses code as an intermediate representation. it's common practice in the industry.
get. over. it.
