I want them to talk about their real motivations behind doing this and I want them to realize how bad and impractical of an idea the idea of bandwidth caps are.

There have been many changes since the last beta, all of them helpful to the overall programming experience. The language is designed for ease-of-use and small size, while allowing people to expand the language within the capabilities of the system the interpreter is running on. More information is available from the home page or from the Freshmeat page, and downloads are available for both Windows and Unix."

I wrote up a series of rules that all legitimate companies that provide Web hosting services should support and follow. Together, we can make sure that no person is ever held hostage by their Web host again."
