Longtime listener, first-time caller... I'm Shane McChesney of:
Nooro Online Research http://www.nooro.com/

...and the old and new weblogs:

We're planning on using Webware in a new version of EnterpriseRSS this
year - the old code was in ASP, the static site is now in Zope.
I've used a Virtual Machine at http://www.tummy.com for a year and the
support, uptime, and performance has been awesome, way better than my
past 3 hosts.
They also helped sponsor the recent PyCon 2004. I didn't have the coin to
swing that, but sponsored a couple of people to go and would like to help
out where I can with great Python projects like Webware.
I contacted Evelyn at Tummy to see if they could help me help Webware, and
she of course said yes. She has offered to discount the $80 per month price
of their Premium Virtual Machine plan to $40/month, and I'm offering to pay
that $40/month on the project's behalf for at least the next two years.
Pentium 4 2.4 GHz
Red Hat 8.0
6 GB disk space
200 MB RAM
20 GB per month transfer
Full root access
Let me know if that meets your expected needs for the next couple of years.
If so, let me know who I should give the login info to once I sign up for
the package. Chuck? Ian? Jason? Geoff?
If not, let us know what else we can do to help grow Webware.
