Oh... Jesse, you didn't get me correct. I don't want RH to actually DO
the hosting/housing/whatever for us. I was just wondering if there are
any Alphas around, that could be (re-)used. And yes, I was also asking,
if RH want's to house/host/buy some Alphas, if they want to do so fine,
if not, that's also OK.
