    I would also suggest trying EuroVPS. This is a really reputable vps provider, offering both managed and unmanaged vps.
    Dont worry if the unmanaged link gets you to an other site. They are the same

    OBHosting.com - Budget VPS Hosting

  • I would avoid EuroVPS. I had quite a lot of problems with them (two years ago).

    Glesys is very good (Falkenberg, Sweden). FitVPS (Varna, Bulgaria) is also very good and a lot cheaper. Check the list for some other offers in Europe but these two are my favorite.

    183 VPS tested in real time and counting... (86 active LEB providers).
    All links I'm posting are tracked affiliate links, whenever the provider has an affiliate program.

    How does being a fan of a politician sway one to become an Economist?

    It actually means that the economical stabilisation of UK in one of the worst crisis it had with the loss of the empire and the decline of the obsolete industrial model, what MT did was very close to a miracle.
    I started to look into it and liked the economical thinking (my country was still under the communist party so there was no real thinking into economy, as there is not much thinking in the religion, everything was pre-thought and now was only the forced implementation).
    Soon tho, the neoliberalism became another "religion" and we are suffering the consequences today.
    I looked at what she managed, then I was looking into how she did it, that is why I started to like Economy. She wasnt a great conqueror or leader of a civil rights movement, didnt liberate any land, but emerged victorious against the communism and economic ruin only by applying a sane economic policy in that context. The Keynes-ian model also worked before in the post-crisis/post-war context, but was failing hard in the post-industrial era.
    I think this explains it a bit.

  • In today times, yes, those policies are bad. In that context it was a different story. We could go on forever with "what would have happened if" kind of stories, but this is not the place :)

  • @Daniel said: Your country's government knows nothing of how the internet works, while the EU is trying to keep the internet open, your government aims for the opposite.

    I wouldn't necessarily say the government doesn't know how the Internet works... just lobbyist groups like the MPAA/RIAA want to restrict the Internet.

    As much as I hate to interrupt this tedious junior high school political discussion, I thought perhaps I might answer the OP by pointing out that Linode has a presence in Europe (UK):

    BTW, Linode != LEB. Linode is a HEB :-)

    We now return to "Teenage Political Slogans," already in progress.

    If you read the thread, you'd know that I do have a Linode in London, but feel unsafe due to where Linode are based.

  • I gotta say, the LeaseWeb Express Cloud is pretty terrible.

    I get write speeds of around 25MB/s, download speeds of around 1Mbps and there isn't even any reboot/boot/shutdown/reinstall options in the control panel. All I can do is null route my own IP.

    @Daniel, I think you will find that SOPA doesn't exist in the US anymore, as it failed.

    And as far as Europe opening the Internet, that's laughable at best.

    In Germany you have the Access Impediment Act. Google search results in Germany and France are actively censored per government directive.

    In the UK a few years ago the UK's Internet Watch Foundation blocked Wikipedia. British Telecommunications ISP passes Internet traffic through a service called Cleanfeed which uses data provided by the IWF to block websites appearing on their list. When such a page is found, the system creates a "URL not found" error page rather than deliver the actual page or a warning page.

    In France if you violate somebody's copyright 3 times (think 3 DMCA notices) you get a lifetime ban from accessing the Internet. In 2011 the Constitutional Council of France validated Article 4 of the LOPPSI 2 law, thereby allowing filtering the Internet without any justice decision. The filtered sites blacklist in France is under the control of the Ministry of the Interior without any independent monitoring. A June 2011 draft executive order implementing Article 18 of the Law for Trust in the Digital Economy (LCEN) would give several French government ministries the power to restrict online content “in case of violation, or where there is a serious risk of violation, of the maintenance of public order, the protection of minors, the protection of public health, the preservation of interests of the national defense, or the protection of physical persons."

    In the Netherlands the government has ordered the country-wide blocking of several websites, and the Public Prosecutor has the authority to close down websites without the intervention of a judge.

    Europe is just as bad, if not worse, about internet censorship as the US.

    @liam

    Home Office Minister Vernon Coaker set a deadline of the end of 2007 for all UK ISPs to implement a “cleanfeed”-style network level content blocking platform. By the middle of 2006 the government reported that 90% of domestic broadband connections were either currently blocking or had plans to by the end of the year. The target for 100% coverage was set for the end of 2007, however in the middle of 2008 it stood at 95%.

    No news anywhere to suggest the conservative-liberal-democrat coalition government has reversed that. Perhaps you're in the 5% of uncensored Internets in the UK.

    Of course, seeing as the blocklist isn't actually published anywhere, no idea how you'd verify if you were being blocked or not.

    Cleanfeed blocks child porn, and can be disabled by calling BT if you wish.

    It was someone on here who recommended LeaseWeb, but its weird how your average LEB VPS outperforms a premium VPS from LeaseWeb.

    The sopa author has a new bill which is WORSE than SOPA. But its being disguised as a Child protection bill.

    I think you will find that bill has no support whatsoever - after the public outrage at SOPA politicians aren't going to be able to pass anything like that anytime soon. Certainly not during an election year.

    No Irish as far as I know. I do have a taste for Guinness though.

    Texas is basically America's version of Scotland to the UK. They never stop seeing how far they can push everyone else. And they are both energy/oil giants. And they both want to secede. And the people talk funny and are considered a bit strange by everyone else :-P

    Dont get the wrong idea, he was no scholar. He claimed his apartment couldnt be equipped for 'net, so he leeches free wifi from everywhere. Have a look at his twitter account; nothing but continual bitching to public wifi providers. ;m

  • @liam Hrm... I can't seem to locate it. Could've sworn it was dr_mike, but that account no longer exists. I wonder if he's moved on to a new identity.

    -glares at @Naruto-

  • Nah, I've covered this particular topic already, just giving the boy a hard time.

    I highly doubt mike is still here under a different name. His ego wouldn't allow for such a "defeat".

  • @Aldryic said: just giving the boy a hard time.

    Sounds kinky. Off topic but @drmike thought I was Chief once.
