Here is the latest news from the Machine…

  • We’re hiring Rails developers to work in Savannah on customer support and some really cool new virtualization products.
  • The happy hour in the ATL was a blast and eventually migrated to a nearby blues joint for a few more pitchers. Thanks to all for coming out.
  • I’ll be speaking on Rails at UbuntuLive in a few weeks. We should be launching Ubuntu-based virtual servers by then.
  • We’ll be at RailsConf Europe in Berlin. Stay tuned for details on a party for the European customers.
  • If you haven’t seen them yet, check out the awesome Rails ads from Machinist Gregg Pollack.
  • We’re sponsoring the July Hackfest. Prizes include free rails hosting. A few Machinists are currently in the top 34 with Gabe da Silveira currently in the top ten. Get ‘em! The rest of you still have time to make an impact.
  • For a limited time, you can get a 4gb dedicated server running Xen (aka XenMachine), for $475/month with $475 setup. This server will support upto 15 custom virtual machines. Existing customers can easily migrate their virtual servers to dedicated hardware with no system changes and only 5 minutes of downtime per VPS. For more information, contact us. Why have a slice when you can have the whole pie!
