Anybody have any particular opinions about web hosts? I've been meaning to move landley.net for years, but now it's become an issue (it's down until I find new hosting).
I have the contents backed up (um, 14 gigabytes, 11 gigs of which I could ditch fairly easily, it's a directory on my laptop which I was updating via rsync) but I need a hosting service to put it on. I've looked at a few, but dunno how to choose between them.
I'm thinking hostgator.com on the theory they have billboards all around Austin with the text "Know Linux? We're Hiring", which strikes me as a vaguely good sign. But I dunno a thing about them as a hosting company other than that. (It looks like everything except serving mercurial is pretty easy to do. All the rest is static content...)
