Thank you so much!!!

Let me toss in my 2cp worth here  :D

Fedora is what Red Hat uses as their "bleeding edge" testing ground, so it's not near as stable as Red Hat Enterprise, and has a much shorter release time frame.  As others have said, don't use it for a server OS.

CentOS is Red Hat Enterprise repackaged to be free, so if you like Red Hat, that's the way to go.

Personally, I like Debian, so I'll put in a nod for that.  Debian is what powers many other distro's out there including Ubuntu.  I have been using Debian on my servers and it's not only rock solid, but updates and any security fixes are taken care of right away, and they have a long release cycle so you don't have to worry about OS upgrades all the time, and you get support for what you are running for a long time.

As for CMS's, if you like DotNetNuke, the check out PostNuke on the *nix side.  Both are based on PHPNuke which started out a looong time ago, it's just that with these others, you get the features without all the bugs and security holes!  :o

As for hosting options, I'd like to mention ServerBeach.  I know you have mentioned going the VPS route, but with ServerBeach you can lease a dedicated server for under a hundred bucks a month.  That's for a low powered server, but one that gets the job done depending on just what you want to do with it, and how many sites you want to host.  If you catch a special, you can get some even better deals too.  I have been a customer there for eight or nine years now and have had literally perfect service with this company.  They started off as part of Rackspace, but got spunoff and sold to Peer1.  All in all they are a great company to deal with, with good prices and great support.  The servers they lease are "un-managed", which means it's a do it yourself gig, but for me, that's just what I wanted.  :Thmbsup:

If you need any help, or have any questions, don't hesitate to send me a private message or reply here, and I'll be glad to help in any way I can.

Hope this helps, thanks!

In the beginning, I actually liked MySpace.  I remember hearing about it from friends and fellow musicians as a place to hang a shingle, post some stuff and maybe get some good feedback and exposure.  Not to mention being able to make contact with already famous artists and heroes alike (which I have been able to do, and was wonderful).  However, MySpace got way too big, bloated, insecure and downright dangerous to a lot of folk that didn't know enough to defend against the basics.  By the time it had been taken over by the kiddies as mentioned above, I had lost all interest in what it had become versus what it started out as.

What was the guys name that started it?  The one that was everyone's first friend by default?  Tom I think it was.  If I remember correctly, he wrote the original site and later sold it to ol' Rupert for (from the article) $580 million!  He made out like a bandit as far as I am concerned!  :Thmbsup:

It might be interesting to see what it morphs into next ...

First off, Firefly is always first, no exceptions.  :)

As for non-canceled shows:

NCIS - Another nod for this one as it's already been mentioned.
Lie To Me - This one is turning out to be great.
White Collar - I have been enjoying this one as well.
Burn Notice - This one is just plain awesome!

I like the IT Crowd too, but it's a whole different genre/show from Lost or the above.

Another nod for Beyond Compare.  I have been using it for years and it just gets better and better (it's updated often).  Version 3 lets you compare text, text files, binary comparisons, folders, hex, mp3 files, pictures and more.  Plus it can sync folders that you compare and merge text.  It has become a tool that I would be hard pressed to live without.  You can open the app and type or paste text into one side and then the other to compare text that way without creating files first.  It does a great job of highlighting the diffs too.

Just my 2cp worth.  :Thmbsup:
