I really got a lot out of tonight's meeting. Christefano's presentation on shared hosting and VPS hosting was excellent. Afterward, I went on to yougetsignal.com to check out how many other websites I share on my IP address -- and would you believe, it was 868 sites, and some of them quite "off-color"! Just more reason to go to VPS right now, and I have much more confidence I can make the switch easily after tonight's presentation.
The "Bird of a Feather" breakout groups were wonderful. I learned so much at the High Performance group, and I finally felt I participated in a Drupal discussion after a year at the meetings! I think the breakout groups idea is excellent -- please continue and expand it.
