also speaking of that, id like to take the opertunity to thank everyone
who helped making that quick move to the current servers possible
That is at least alex, arpi, fabrice, beastd, kieran, reimar, roberto,
lou, tim,  ubitux and probably more who i have forgotten to list

In principle we could stay at these servers but i think its better
if we use the time available now to move things to some free,
higher end servers and hosting and also if possible (volunteers)
move to something like LXC or qemu/kvm in the process and have
services properly seperated

That would give us better servers, more robust hosting than what you
get with a 50euro/mo box. more security and at less cost.
