Hello fellow WHTers!

Resolution for one can equal solutions for many.

I'm back in the cold of Michigan after spending much of last week basking in the sun of Florida. It wasn't easy coordinating 7 kids in 4 states to visit their mom. But through compromise and options, we got it done.

It all started with a suggestion that we should get together. The biggest stumbling block was my older brother who couldn't get away for a week to drive the 2,400 miles and had a morbid fear of flying. We finally settled on going down for four days - yes, on a plane! Some scheduling conflicts later and it was 5 days. But it was 5 days that wouldn't have happened if we weren't open to compromise. Dates and lodging moved around as we coordinated. With every obstacle, a new opportunity arose. And in the end, everyone was satisfied.

One of the questions asked on WHT by a few members since we've offered enhanced memberships has been, "Can I pay for Corporate or Premium membership with something other than PayPal?" Beginning today, they can. And just in time as we've updated our Corporate membership offering in the past week.

Be sure to follow us on Twitter @WebHostingTalk for updates and maybe even a special surprise on occasion.

See you on the forums!

Here are a few of the great things the community at Web Hosting Talk is talking about this week... 

  How do you deal with customers like these? Is the question asked by LinuxStandard in our Running a Web Hosting Business forum.

  How do customers and providers see the future of web hosting? Check out UNIXy's thread in our Web Hosting Forum forum titled The penultimate question: When will it burst?.

  The art of design is always debatable. And CSS vs. Tables started by maknet in our Web Design and Content forum does not disappoint.

  On the topic of where the industry's heading, check out Douglas' thread An open letter to VPS "providers" and VPS Customers in our VPS Forum.

  If you're a host, you might be interested in getting noticed in your local market. See RollerHoster's thread titled Approaching local business about hosting.... in our popular Running a Web Hosting Business forum.

This is a small sampling of great discussions going on now at We can't possibly fit them all in this newsletter, so get in there and get involved!
