I thought I'd write some more "senseless low-quality crap that regularly fills ZDNet and that's only designed to draw readers in". I thank "kouzen" for his insight, but you Sir, are an idiot.
Another primarily UK-biased post for which I apologise for; this is old news but still very much valid. Microsoft and WebFusion partnered up some time ago to provide free web hosting to all British students.
There has been for some while “heated debates” amongst fellow blogospherians (probably not a word, don’t comment and bitch about it please) about all these cloud services we’re hearing about.
