text drive or dreamhost

Textdrive doesn’t rock anymore, their samurai task is so over zealous and the servers are unreliable and over priced. Maybe they give better service on non-shared -I don’t know as I haven’t risked it- but I am in the process of dumping them for Site5 (shared) and RimuHosting (VPS). Site5 has been reliable and cheap (I have only had 1 1/2 hour outage in 6 months) and RimuHosting are very cheap and seem to be really helpful.

I do like Textdrives community, but that doesn’t replace poor hosting that seems to have been stuck in a timewarp whilst they push their joyent (parents product) thing. I would much rather they invested their resources in making a decent hosting offering rather than diluting it with office productivity stuff I don’t want.
