0.  INTRODUCTION:

Phew, I _just_ got this newsletter out before the end of the month! I know
February is a short month, and that I didn't have until the 31st to
release the next hip-rocking edition of our e-periodical. That's why I got
it out today, February 30th, just under the wire! Anyway, short month:
short newsletter! But I promise next month's will more than make up for it
with a bunch of big announcements a long time in the making! Speaking of
long, here's a quick joke for this quick newsletter. A horse walks into a
bar, the bartender says, "Why the long face?".

1. DHSOTM

The Geffen Playhouse is this month's one and only winner of the
supra-coveted DreamHost Site of the Month award! Visit their site at
http://www.geffenplayhouse.com/ and see "Where theater lives in L.A.". Not
quite as interesting as say "Where Kobe Bryant lives in L.A.", but hey, I
don't see Kobe hosting a website with us. So that in itself speaks volumes
about the incredible minds that went into making this site. In fact the
volume it speaks is "Our minds are really incredible for choosing
DreamHost to host our site".

But yeah, this site is really nicely laid out and gives you all kinds of
practical information about the playhouse as well as pretty pictures and
stuff about its past and future perfomances. Contact info, ordering
tickets, etc.. it's all there. My favorite thing is the funny scrolling
pictures at the top of the page that sort of roll in and line up. I think
that's Brendan Frasier in the first one too? So anyway, go visit their
site and go visit them for real next time you're in L.A. and Bryant
forgets to invite you over!

2. DH2 Move

In case you forgot, we're still in the process of moving the rest of our
longtime, loyal customers from the original DreamHost 1 system over to the
new DreamHost 2 system (enjoyed by all shortime, non-loyal customers who
signed up since September 15th, 2000). Just kidding, all you DH2 people
are loyal too! No offense, please. None taken? Good.

Well as of this second we have 1737 of you guys and gals successfully
migrated to the new system, and lots and lots more on deck. We've gotten
to the point where we're moving 200-300 people per diem. Which is of
course Chinese for "dollar".

So anyway, at that rate we should be done in about 30-40 more dollars, and
it's a goal to not have to spend more than that. So hang in there, I bet
by the newsletter ototoi (which is Japanese for "the one after this one")
we'll be finished and DreamHost will once and for all be "fordee donlo gu
fee das haggen bahn" (Swedish for "reunited").
